Today is the first full day—and second night, for those counting menorah candles—of Hanukkah, the annual festival of lights in which Jews celebrate a certain before-Christ miracle involving victory in battle and some very slow-burning oil. Also: food! As Angela Garbes noted in these pages in May, there aren't many places in this area to eat Jewish food, but two worth checking out are Goldbergs' Famous Delicatessen in Bellevue and Eats Market Cafe in Westwood Village. Also, a $3 box of Manischewitz matzo-ball-soup mix is its own special miracle. (Goldbergs' Famous Delicatessen, 3924 Factoria Square Mall SE, 425-641-6622; Eats Market Cafe, 2600 SW Barton St, 933-1200.)
