Not Without Salt

Film Friday: when in Seattle, you must…

*side note* This is part of a series in which I post images I’ve taken throughout the week using my Canon A1 (fancy talk for a film camera circa the 80’s)

Here are a few other Film Fridays to peruse at your leisure.




All images were shot using Kodak Portra 400.

ok, continue. When in Seattle you must…

… have dinner at Delancey.

If we happen to not be there that night, which might not be likely considering we live right around the corner and frequent it quite often – we will let you sit at our corner table. If we are there, please join us. We are happy to share our pizza but you should be aware of the dining arrangements.

Baron cozies up to the window in the corner seat. Gabe, Ivy and I sit on the end while Roman, if he sits at all, takes the other window seat. In order to ensure a somewhat chaos-free dining experience we carry with us no less than two iPhones and one iPad. Now I know at some point we must bite the bullet and teach our children how to properly behave in restaurants without the aid of technological devices but not yet, please not yet.

A little tip on ordering… everything is great. You know of course that the pizza is amazing but don’t just skim over the salads and starters. Some of my favorite tastes while dining at Delancey have come from this part of the menu. Also, never skip dessert and never, ever walk out with out a little to-go bag with a salted chocolate chip cookie tucked inside.

When in Seattle you must also picnic. What’s that? Oh dear, it’s raining?! That’s odd.

No problem we can still picnic at Picnic. They have everything a good picnic requires. Lillet? Check. Pork Rillettes? Check. Dinah’s Cheese with Ballard Bee honey? Check. Roasted beets with smokey blue cheese and hazelnuts? Check.

If by some chance you are in Seattle when it’s not raining than I urge you to gather all your goods and take your picnic to the zoo which is conveniently located about ½ mile away from Picnic.

You should also note that picnicking in the midst of friends, new and old, makes everything much, much better.
