Jane and Michael Stern are coming to Benaroya Hall Tuesday as part of the Seattle Arts & Lectures series. I wrote a bit on Al Dente about whether the Sterns and their Roadfood writings are still relevant in the age of Yelp. (The answer: Heck yes.)
The last time the Sterns came to Seattle, I had the happy task of trying to share some of Seattle’s best Roadfood bets with them. It was surprisingly tough, as I discussed here.
In the three years since that tour, though, Seattle seems to have added another layer of eating out, a new willingness to expand beyond the fine-dining and into the just plain fine. This time, I’d send the Sterns any number of new places — Lunchbox Laboratory, Skillet, Marination Mobile, just for starters.
Where do you think they should eat? And if you want to dine with them, albeit in fancier digs, they’ll also be speaking at a fund-raising dinner to benefit Arts & Lectures at the Palace Ballroom Monday night.
