For Your Stomach’s Consideration

posted by on June 20 at 11:04 AM

Black Bottle in Belltown is now serving lunch. Black Bottle is a Stranger reader-reviewer favorite, home of great light bulbs, favorite first-date venue of Grant Cogswell, and temple of blasted broccoli

The menu calls it, simply, “broccoli blasted.” It’s an $8 hill of broccoli that appears to have survived a fiery, salty apocalypse. The tips are ashy, crunchy, almost dust. The rest of it is deep green. (Must be all the vitamins, the nutrients, the anticancer stuff.) I have walked from the far reaches of the city in the hard rain, cars splashing water at me, all the way to Black Bottle to wait for a seat at the bar, just to eat a plate of broccoli while staring into a candle, alone.

Blasted broccoli is not on the all-new lunch menu (after the jump), but “like all special requests, we want everybody to feel free to ask and we will always do what we can!” (sounds like yes).

Sorry this is a bit hard to read—it should be on their website soon.


I am now hungry.

I've eaten more than my fair share of that broccoli. :-)

This is the best Summer Solstice EVER.

Why alone?

It probably gives him gas.

too bad their staff and management is rude as hell and the service is crap.

Just had my first BB lunch. The Leek and Emmanthaler Tart was perfect, and the side salad of cucumber, mango and jicima was perfect on this Summer day.

Even the iced tea was perfect. :-)

Brocoli is food of the Gods. I want to try it.
