South Lake Union welcomes a deliciously delectable eatery to the neighborhood.

La Toscanella opened its doors last month, specializing in Italian pastries and desserts, coffee, and sandwiches. Utilizing European ingredients to create a satisfying, yet light menu, this bakery serves artisan pastries and sweets, as well as full menu of savory items, including egg skillets, salads, soups, paninis, quiches, and baked to order pasta dishes.

Scone and cocktail pairings, American comfort food, and a cozy atmosphere await your arrival.

Opened in 2009, co-owner Sarah was first introduced to dining out at Boston area eateries by her maternal grandfather, Frank Duffin. Frank’s Oyster House & Champagne Parlor is a gem, offering a fresh take on hospitality and warmth, and tucked away in a small neighborhood behind University Village.

Enjoy Pacific Northwest oysters and sustainable seafood at this iconic waterfront destination.

In this edition of Food Porn, we feature Elliott’s Oyster House, an iconic establishment on the Seattle waterfront since 1975. Elliott’s has earned a national repuation for seafood specialties such as sustainable Dungeness crab, wild salmon, Alaskan halibut, and Pacific Northwest shellfish – including their star attraction, oysters.
