Welcome to Eater Seattle's newest column, Something for the Weekend. Every Friday, you probably think the same question: Where should I eat this weekend? Covering brunch, dinner, and everything in between, here now, three places to try this weekend.
Bellevue's Local Burger is worth crossing the bridge for, Seattle. Delightfully messy and perfectly cooked, this place is worth the clogged arteries. Pair your burger with some poutine and a glass of Washington-brewed beer or a house cocktail. Local sourcing is the icing on the cake.
10134 Main Street, Bellevue. (425) 454-8559.
A meal at Nue is an ever-changing adventure, whether you're a world traveler or an armchair enthusiast. You can dive into street food from around the globe, with recent highlights like Trinidad Goat Curry laced with spice and topped with a piece of coconut and pineapple cornbread. The liquid nitrogen ice cream and enticing specials don't hurt, either.
1519 14th Ave Seattle, Capitol Hill. (206) 257-0312.
Duke's Chowder House
Just sayin': It may be time to revisit this Seattle classic. There's the killer chowder, of course, a heavenly Parmesan Halibut entree, and rotating specials to keep it interesting. Duke's takes sustainability seriously, too, so you can eat a whole bunch of seafood and not feel (too) guilty.
Locations in Alki, Green Lake, Kent, South Lake Union, South Center, and Tacoma.
