Serious Pie … I have been waiting to write about this amazing feast for over a year now. Hands down, Serious Pie serves up the best pizza in the area…in my opinion. The pizza is more artisan style cooked in a stone-encased applewood burning oven. Two locations in Seattle offer visitors and locals alike, a taste of heaven…located on Harrison & Westlake Ave in the South Lake Union area (new!) and on Virginia St. in downtown Seattle. Just minutes away from Pike Place Market and great shopping. This is a Tom Douglas restaurant. The ambiance…electric and the space… very cool. The South Lake Union site was the location for this birthday dinner with a group of 13 or so. I had a seasonal pizza… roasted apple, gorgonzola dulce, and toasted pistacios…with an olive oil base. So delicious! There are seasonal options as well as a few standards such as yukon gold potato, rosemary, pecorino or penn cove clam, house pancetta, lemon thyme or sweet fennel sausage, roasted peppers, provolone or buffalo mozzarella, san marzano tomato.

Afterwards, we enjoyed a game at the West Seattle Bowl. I was really impressed…this has to be one of the nicest bowling alley’s in the area, and definitely would like to return sooner than later. Winning! http://www.westseattlebowl.com/
