These 9 Washington Restaurants Have The Silliest Names But The Most Amazing Food
There’s more to the restaurant business than the food. It takes great marketing to stand out in a sea of similar lunch and dinner spots, and sometimes that means coming up with a name no one will ever forget. These are some of our quirkier (but creative) restaurant names, and they all happen to serve delicious food.
1. How to Cook a Wolf, 2208 Queen Anne Ave N., Seattle
Renowned local chef Ethan Stowell is known for his quirky restaurant names. How to Cook a Wolf is named after a book from 1942. The food, however, is both modern and amazing.
2. Turnip the Beet, 130 E Front St., Port Angeles
The menu here is as creative as the name. With over 60 different options and 1,000 ways to combine them, you’ll never tire of the healthy meals served at Turnip the Beet. They use fresh, local organic food, which they happen to serve until 2 AM on weekends.
3. Brotha Dudes, 202 E. Holly St., Bellingham
Brotha Dudes is new to Bellingham, but they’re already loved by the locals. Whether you’re craving a classic reuben sandwich or a ridiculously healthy salad (this is a Hippie Bowl), you’ll find it here.
4. The G Spot, 1013 N 1st St., Yakima
The G Spot is the bar side of Gasperetti’s Restaurant, and with a name like that, the food had better be special. Luckily, the fancy bar food served here is outstanding, and so is the wine selection.
5. Honeyhole Sandwiches, 703 E Pike St., Seattle
With names like The Gooch, The Dude and Emilio Pestovez, the sandwiches here are as attention-grabbing as the restaurant name. But not only does this place have excellent options for vegetarians and meat eaters alike, but the food is exceptional.
6. Loose Kaboose Diner, 4514 Pacific Way, Long Beach
We wouldn’t expect anything but a quirky name and enormous pancakes from a train car diner on the coast. The Loose Kaboose has a great atmosphere and giant portions.
7. Pho King Crab, 1601 E Washington Ave. #104, Yakima
Wordplay with “pho” always makes for a great name, and this highly rated Yakima restaurant’s signature Vietnamese soup is both flavorful and addictive.
8. Pho King, 1020 Martin Luther King Jr Way, Tacoma
This place really gets right to the point, doesn’t it? This restaurant may not look like much, but the food is pholicious.
9. The Flying Goat, 3318 W Northwest Blvd., Spokane
An illuminated goat watches you eat your meal here, but you’ll be way too preoccupied with your mouthwatering pizza to notice or care.
There’s certainly nothing wrong with giving your restaurant a unique name to stand out in the crowd. Just make sure you don’t miss our
