I love it - the food is super fun. I ate the cubed watermelon with hamachi on top and soy foam. And I love the salty potatoes. And air sandwiches are my favorite. And I love the new way martini with the liquified olive and the dirty foam - I mean, that's always delicious.
Metropolitan Markets are great. They feature a lot of local products. They carry a lot of products from Salumi and Beecher's Cheese, so it's kind of a nice one-stop shop. There are several in the city, but I love this one on top of Queen Anne. They always are doing different demonstrations - chefs are always in there cooking from their books or cooking with their products. People go in and it's like happy hour in there! They'll go in and have all these snacks, people visit with each other, everybody knows each other, and then they're shopping, which is great... it's like the foodie happy hour.
