Girin

Well, it’s been ages, folks, but I’m back.  It’s hard to focus on writing when there’s so much going on.  We are on a 6-week road trip in our Airstream Interstate, and since I’m writing for Dave (Rvroadies.com), I may as well write for sflocalsguide.com.  Girin in Seattle will be..
Casa Caponetti

Casa Caponetti

Coqueta

This is my second lunch at Coqueta.  The first was SO good that I couldn’t bring myself to take pictures or write notes.  Sometimes when food is that good, it could very well disappoint later.  But that wasn’t the case at Coqueta.  My friend, Debbie, and I had a fine..
