Additional Details

Description: You Can't Eat Mount Rainier is a first of its kind for Seattle, takes native or visitor alike on a delightful safari through Seattle with knife and fork. It's a book that salutes Seattle's "restaurant renaissance," a phenomenon so recent that a good many natives haven't caught up with it yet, although national restaurant experts rate Seattle as one of the 10 best cities for dining out, in the United States.  

In addition to personality sketches of restaurants ranging from the plain- but-cozy to the elegant-and-expensive, there are fascinating recipes from the chefs and bartenders .. . and interesting editorial features on such subjects as the art of dining out, the local liquor laws, the bountiful "sea fare" of the area and the famous and colorful Pike Place Market.  

All of this is approached with informality and good humor by author and illustrator, both Seattleites by birth, who are anxious to waken the native and woo the visitor with the idea that the glories of cuisine here are fast rivaling the glories of the scenery.
