I’m currently in the airport waiting for our red eye back to Boston and feeling literally stuffed to the gills from days and days of fabulous food, coffee, and booze. In fact, CK and I just had our last Seattle dinner at Serious Pie which ended up being one of the places we deemed fabulous enough to warrant a repeat visit on our week long trip.
Serious Pie is one of the many local restaurants spearheaded by Seattle Chef Tom Douglas. CK and I managed to fit in meals at almost all of his establishments with the exception of Ettas. Over the course of our two dining experiences we consumed the following amazing pies: buffalo mozzarella and san marzano tomato, cherry bomb peppers and sweet fennel sausage, roasted squash, garlic, and gorgonzola, and finally my favorite: roasted chanterelles with truffled cheese. I could have eaten there every single day. The restaurant is very relaxed and cozy, the service is exceptional, and the unique pizza left such a positive impression on me that it will definitely rank in my top five pizza pie list.
If you want to see the restaurant for yourself check out this video of Tom Douglas explaining the Serious Pie concept. The “serious” adjective isn’t being used in exactly the manner you might think.
