My resolution? To try every eating/drinking establishment in my Seattle neighborhood (Fremont) by the end of the year, and break out of the rut of going to the same places over and over. I also thought this was a resolution that I was a lot more likely to keep than the resolutions most people make (and break) like losing weight or exercising more.
I found some great new places that I wouldn’t have tried without starting on this quest. I found some places that I’ll never willingly go back to. I ate some great food throughout the year, had fun with friends who joined me on the quest, and have expanded my repertoire of neighborhood restaurants.
I’ve even had a couple people tell me that my quest has inspired them to do something similar in their own neighborhoods.
Drum roll … here are Carolyn’s Fremont restaurant reviews:
- Nice dining places
- Asian restaurants
- Thai restaurants (there were so many, they got their own category)
- Mexican restaurants
- Restaurant potpourri (all the places that didn’t neatly fit in other categories)
- Burgers & pizza
- Breakfast & dessert places (start your day here, end your day here)
- Coffee places
- Pubs & bars
