Chow Spend Cheap, Feel Fancy

I’m kind of glad that I only recently found out about La Buona Tavola (1524 Pike Pl). If I’d known this little gem of a wine (and truffle) shop existed when I worked near its Pike Place Market location, it would have been very difficult to resist spending my lunch hours there. Fortunately, I am now at enough of a remove that I am only likely to dally there when it is appropriate to do so, i.e. not during a work day. Check it out, boozers. Five dollars will buy you a personalized wine tasting, tailored to your preferences. Also, they do monthly sit-down dinners, but the shop is tiny, so you have to sign up pretty far in advance. For now, though, try their potato leek soup. It is fucking delicious. Go, live high on the hog for like, 40 minutes, and try to forget your shitty office job.
