On the table


A friend recently formed a book club which combines two of my favorite things in life: reading and fancy food. Each month we choose a book to discuss over dinner at a new restaurant. This month we met at Betty, which was spectacular. I wish I'd gotten a photo of my sweet potato ravioli but I was too blown away by its rich flavor to think of getting out my camera. Luckily I remembered by the time that beauty of a dessert called baked hot chocolate came around. I highly recommend Betty if you get the chance to go.

Betty is located at the top of Queen Anne hill, which is an area I haven't explored too much. My bus dropped me off at the bottom and it was quite a hike to the top which made the night feel like an adventure. The view from Queen Anne is incredible. The Space Needle looks enormous from this angle and towers over the lights of downtown and everything is reflected in Lake Union. Maybe sometime I'll take my tripod out and try to capture it but there's really nothing like seeing it in person.
