Favorite Capitol Hill Restaurants of 2011!

This year, Capitol Hill was booming with new restaurants! I’ve sampled many of them throughout the year and in my time living in Capitol Hill, but there are still so many that I haven’t tried. It also doesn’t help that there will be a handful of new places opening this January. In this post, you’ll learn about both my new and old favorites! Keep in mind though that this is not a “best of” post. I am in no way claiming that these restaurants are the best in their category, but these are the ones that I enjoy and they’re the ones that I take my friends to. With that, let’s get started?

Favorite Fish & Chips: Pike Street Fish Fry

Pike Street Fish Fry has been across the street from my school for quite some time, but for some reason, I have always overlooked it. It’s probably cause I thought Neumos, Moe Bar, and Pike Street Fish Fry all merged into one and never gave it a second look. Over the summer, Lisa and I came up with this idea that we would have our lunch break at a different restaurant once a week. Now looking back on it, I think we only did this once and Pike Street Fish Fry was the only place we ever went to, but what a  great choice it was anyways! Fish and chips were a common staple for me growing up since I was obsessed with Ivars and Skippers, which means I’m pretty particular about eating it anywhere else. Pike Street Fish Fry is incredibly greasy, but deliciously greasy in the best way possible. That’s like a descriptive heart attack, but trust – if everyone else on the hill and on Yelp says it’s the place you need to try, then you just have to.

*Every third Friday, the restaurant offers free fresh cut frys from 5 – 7PM.

What I order: Catfish or Cod and chips

Katie’s Favorites of 2010

Favorite Style Icon: Alexa Chung

Earlier this year, my friend Veronica asked me if I would be compiling 20 of my favorite posts to feature like I had done last year. At the end of 2009, I had 1,423 posts. Today, I have 3502 posts. Going through that many from this year alone does not sound fun to me. 2010 was a great year and there are many special posts that mean something to me, but the task is exhausting. After starting the process, I decided to opt out of it and bring you my favorites in other things instead as a way to look back on this year. Enjoy!

Everyone’s favorite local spot gets bigger and better

For about a year, all any student at Seattle University could talk about was Rancho Bravo and how good it is. Rancho Bravo on 10th and Pine took over the old KFC and opened up shop in Spring of 2009. I had my first taste earlier this month and can finally understand the hype even though I was never a huge fan of tacos and burritos. Because of its growing popularity, the restaurant is creating a patio as well as talking about plans for a drive-thru to make it an official fast food eatery.The restaurant is a local favorite in Capitol Hill and one of the best places for students to grab a late night bite.
