By "natto" do you mean nattō, Chris?
My uncle's nose is unmistakably similar to Marmite as well, but you don't hear him bragging about it.
"hit him like a ton of bricks"
A metric ton? Or an imperial ton?
"dark and barnyard-y and unrelenting, like sweetened natto."
My god, you're just unrelenting with your snobbishness. Natto, really? Sweetened natto, REALLY?
Write for REAL PEOPLE!
Onstar i think this is your best "The crowd is a cleaner kind of hipster, ranging from mid-20s to late-30s."
Yours is the TV Digest of food writing. Completely Snarkulous.
I found the carbonara to be way over-seasoned. You didn't have that problem there?
I went to a Yelp event there around when it opened and was thoroughly impressed. I had the same experience - everything ranged from good to great.
The noodles themselves were the most impressive - being obviously house-made leads to a lot of character, especially in texture. Looking forward to going back.
I love it when the friends of a reviewed business jump into the comments.
We've been twice, and will keep going. Great food, great cocktails, great service. You definitely shell out for it, particularly if you get more than one $9 tamarind sour.
This review is 100% correct. Yara is achingly average, and overpriced for average.
I have had the pleasure of dining at Yara several times in the past months since its opening and i have to disagree, it was excellent. Sure, there are a few kinks that obviously need to be worked out (the long wait times, as you said), but cant say that it was in any way bad. I have multiple friends that SWEAR by this place, and have had overwhelmingly positive experiences. I think you might be wrong this time Chris....
3 of the Burger Week restaurants seem to be unprepared for the onslaught of business and cannot deal. The burger at Pause was well executed and very tasty but - a 45 minute wait for a burger at lunchtime gives you no time to enjoy it.
The Hopricot is fantastic!! And you must try the Newtown Pippin. I credit 1856 for introducing me to the Reverend.
Superb coverage. And well deserved.
DO MORE OF THIS PLEASE
Chris you eat this stuff 6 or 7 days a week? (you must be El Lardass Supremo) Anyway this is the finest restaurant anybody has created in the pacific northwest in decades. Why are you damning it with faint praise?
Also you qwerty suspiciously similiar to this chris onstad:
Is he your dad or something?
We were the only customers in the place as well. I thought the entire experience was disappointing. It was like being at a dead party where the caterers had nothing to do since the cook and bartender were just standing around. The food, well, I won't be back. It lacked on so many different levels. They're doing too much wrong. Bring in a chef that knows how to cook a right temperature on a burger. I had 2 on 2 different occasions and both times it was overcooked from medium rare to well. How does that happen. It has potential, but not with who'd running it.
Music was crap but they had dollar Miller's. Plus we were THE only customers in the place and weren't very hungry, so I obviously can't personally comment on the cuisine.
I miss the Thai joint it replaced.
EDIT - Just notice the pic was taken in the exact same place I was sitting. Trippy.
