It was hot!! Too hot to cook. So out to dinner. The Goddess of parking gave us a parking spot in front of the Golden Olive restaurant. I thank her. We had intended to go to another restaurant within easy walking distance. My wife mentioned that she had thought to try the Golden Olive as well. We of course wanted air conditioned comfort and were not going to accept less.
Until being greeted by the owner who I knew through a mutual friend. She was so gracious and humorous that we decided to brave the heat. We are thankful we did. We were fed generous portions of the best greek food I have eaten in the forty years of eating in Seattle. My wife had prawns with vegetables and I had seafood linguini with goat cheese. My wife gave me a few of her gigantic prawns. Incredible. My linguini was so good, I ate more than was comfortable. My wife and I feel this was the best meal we have ever eaten on 45th in our twenty years of living in Wallingford.
