One thing that Hanabi does well is find those highly local, road less-travelled kinds of places to eat. Anyone can review a Michelin three star affair, and many do. Hanabi does that too. But, sometimes you’ve got to give the little guy his big break. That’s Hanabi and that’s Tat’s Delicatessen in Pioneer Square, Seattle. Since they proclaim to be an East Coast deli, Hanabi decided to take them up on that and try out their Ruben and their Pastrami. Any deli enthusiast knows that a pastrami sandwich is served just one way. We’ll see if Tat’s can make the cut. If you want to get a little more eclectic, always go for a place that tries to get you to come for the food and stay for the art. Yeah, that’s the Icon Grill in downtown Seattle. When you’re ordering deep –fried mac n cheese and stuffed sole you know it’s going to be that kind of night.

WE’ll follow up with a report on how the conference went. Can’t wait!
