Now that I have a job that I love at Edelman, a worldwide public relations firm with an office in Seattle, I have so many restaurants to try during my lunch hour. I'm excited to share a new series I'm calling "let's do lunch," where I'll be reviewing restaurants I try in Seattle and beyond.
My first week at Edelman has been nothing short of amazing. My new fellow intern friend Marina took me to Home Remedy, a flower shop, gourmet market and deli all in one. The eatery is just another diamond in the restaurant collection of Tom Douglas, the renowned chef responsible for Seattle's most stylish restaurants like Dahlia Lounge and Lola.
I'll admit stepping into the space was overwhelming because it felt like every young professional in Seattle was buzzing through the aisles, ordering food or selecting succulents. But I quickly took that as an indicator of how popular the place was. I ordered a roast beef sandwich (which was doused with pesto on grilled bread) with a double chocolate walnut cookie. Both were simply to die for. They have an amazing array of options on their menu from soups to Indian-style burritos. I knew that would be the first of many trips to Home Remedy, after all they claim to have the essentials for life and home. I can't go on without the essentials right?
