Can you recommend a good restaurant?

Seattle’s top-rated local foodie radio show wants me on the air next week to discuss South Sound restaurants.

I haven’t given the producer my answer.

Frankly, I’m terrified I’ll speak my mind.

Here’s the deal, if you haven’t already figured it out: The South Sound doesn’t have that many restaurants that are worth the 40-mile drive from Seattle. How’s that for reverse discrimination?

Here’s a short list of contenders: Primo Grill. Brix 25. Pacific Grill. Island Style Barbecue.

Here are several maybes: Quickie Too. The Mark. Il Fiasco. Marzano’s. Over the Moon Cafe. JT’s Original Louisiana Bar-B-Que. La Creme Brulee. Stadium Bistro. Asado.

Here are some that could have but won’t: Masa. Indochine.

Here’s what I ask of you: Give me a dope-slap reminder of what’s worth recommending to out-of-town foodies.
