My buddy Chris, the biggest RHCP fan I know, isn't a native to Seattle, but has been here ever since we both left the illustrious Bellingham to get big kid jobs in the city. Chris moved down to West Seattle with his wife and has been settled in for a little over a year, which gives him plenty of time to become acquainted with the ins and outs of Seattle's original neighborhood.

NAME: Chris
JOB: Data science and other buzzwords
I LIVE IN: West Seattle, in the Fauntleroy neighborhood.

BEST LATE-NIGHT FOOD
The Westy

The Westy has great food and a wonderful beer selection. Its late-night happy hour boasts a variety of eats that will keep you satisfied and wondering why wings taste so good after midnight. The space is small, but adds to the Westy’s local neighborhood vibe. Incidentally, this is also a great place to catch a game. Whether you are a sports generalist or someone who thinks Jay Buhner should be in the hall of fame, there is always a variety of sporting events playing at the Westy.

BEST BREAKFAST
Tie: Endolyne Joe’s and Fiddle Head cafe

Both restaurants offer some serious nom choices. Endolyne Joe’s is great for those folks who like a traditional breakfast (i.e. large) but still desire quality. Additionally, Endolyne Joe’s has an ever-changing menu. Every couple of months, two of its dishes change to reflect cuisine typically found elsewhere in the world. Past favorites have been: Spanish, Italian, U.S. Southern, and South American.

However, if you are not necessarily into the large portions of greasy food then Fiddle Head café may be what you are looking for. Fiddle Head offers dishes with more eclectic pairings such as roasted kale, squash, and cauliflower.

BEST PARK
Lincoln Park

For the citizens of West Seattle, this is a no brainer. Lincoln park is an all-in-one recreation spot for West Seattle habitants. The kids can enjoy a well-kept playground (that includes a mini zip line) while fitness-friendly adults will find more than ample trail and walkway space to enjoy a scenic run. Lincoln Park also has one of the best views of Puget Sound. Feeling like a picnic? Why not rent a picnic table with one of the best views of Puget sound (don’t tell the people who think that this honor belongs to Alki beach, though)? Did I mention Lincoln Park also has a public salt water pool… awesome. 

BEST DINNER
Bang Bar

Two words: tasty beef. This is one of the best Thai restaurants I have ever been to. Bang bar’s food is so tasty that it’s easy to overlook the interior’s great atmosphere. Bang bar is the perfect place for a date night. Your date will enjoy the ambiance of the atmosphere without having to sacrifice anything on the taste front. Did I mention yet that the tasty beef is a carnivore’s dream?

BEST BEER SELECTION
Super Deli Mart

Super Deli Mart always surprises me with its ever-evolving selection of beer. Additionally, if you would like to sit down and try a pint before you commit to buying a six pack this place has your back. The deli is equipped with tables, big screen TVs, and a consortium of taps that will provide you with whatever your beer-heart desires. This place also has awesome sandwiches, it’s not rare to go for a beer and end up staying for a couple pints topped with an original cheesy British.
