Hope you all had a beautiful New Year! When I woke up on the first day of 2015, I thought to myself - boy, I am beyond lucky and grateful to be where I am. Seattle is just absolutely gorgeous.

From top left corner and clockwise -- my favorite spot for oysters in Seattle: Walrus and the Carpenter; a delicious happy hour place with an amazing lemon ricotta cake dessert at Black Bottle in Belltown; green curry pork dumplings one of the best Korean short rib rice bowls at Revel; world famous soup dumplings, spicy wontons and shu mai at Din Tai Fung.
From top left corner and clockwise -- Korean BBQ, a parfait truck and a noodle bar at Trove; homemade, slow churned ice cream and sweet-smelling waffle cones at Molly Moon's; amazing sushi at Shiro's; my favorite go-to pasta and Italian appetizer dishes at Tavolata (it's an Ethan Stowell restaurant, and his other places are super yummy, too).
And of course, you can't go wrong with any of the Tom Douglas restaurants - all of his spots are divine. Even Anthony Bourdain is a big fan.
