When I moved to Seattle to go to the U, I lived on 15th and 47th .. needless to say The Continental was almost my home away from home. Sure there was the occasional roach (saw those at il Bistro too) but I love the people and the food was homey and just a touch exotic. I ate there last month to say good bye to everyone and was touched to get a big hug from Helen who looked pretty much the same as she did when I met her. We have so few places that are family owned and operated here, much less any that stay open long enough so that grandparents can take their grandkids going off to college to the place they ate at when at the U. The Continental will be missed!

@2 .. there is a pretty substantial beaver population in Lake Washington and has been for years. Rent a canoe and paddle around the arboretum some morning, you might be shocked by the wildlife right here in the city

Any sandwich on the menu at RS2 is far and away better than any of the $12 sandwiches at Homegrown, the most overrated “upscale" sandwich place in town. Yet, somehow there are 4 star reviews on Yelp. I don’t think the Stranger has been there since 2009 .. perhaps it’s time for a sandwich- off ... the best sandwiches in Seattle! I nominated 1. Dinette 2. Dots 3 Paseo 4. Rainshadow 5. Salumi
