Kickstarter-Funded Restaurant Map; Ramen vs. Wramen

KICKSTARTIN'— Seattle is well-represented in this map of every American restaurant that raised funding via Kickstarter. A few examples: Queen Anne's Cederberg Tea House raised $10,405 from 90 backers; Bad Jimmy's Brewing Co. raised $15,621 from 225 backers, and Plum Bistro raised a whopping $29,926 from 277 backers.

PIONEER SQUARE—Delicatus proprietors Mike Klotz and Derek Shankland talk about opening shop in Pioneer Square (before it took off) with Puget Sound Business Journal's Glenn Drosendahl. Shankland says, "We brought the concept and the passion for what we do, and to get this neighborhood raised up." [PSBJ]

SEATTLE— Food writer Jay Friedman coins the word Wramen (pronounced double-u ramen) for the "Westernized ramen" found on American restaurant menus (he includes several Seattle-area examples) and lists where to find "real" ramen around the region, including Jinya, Tsukushinbo, and 4649 Yoroshiku.
