Carmin's Tips on Central Area Neighborhood

Though the Central Area is known as one of the oldest residential neighborhoods in Seattle, it has also been the location for new construction and improvements. Diversity is celebrated here with local events like Honk! Fest West celebrating marching bands and street music in June, the Bon Odori Festival celebrating Japanese culture in July and the Central Area Community Festival held in August.  Contact Carmin Russell to help find the right Central Area real estate for you.

Ezells Chicken
Ezell’s has 13 locations, but this one was where the legacy all began. Ezell’s is known for being fresh, good and fast. Their menu isn’t huge as they just focus on what is most important: fried chicken, fresh-baked rolls, crinkle fries, friend okra, BBQ beans, creamy slaw, potato salad, mac & cheese and more.

Tavern Law
McCracken Tough’s Tavern Law deliver familiar-sounding dishes in a whole new way. For instance, the Natural Beef Burger comes with red wine onion jam, provolone cheese and thyme aioli. The Mac & Cheese comes with duck fat bread crumbs, scallions, apple and arugula. You get the idea. Casual comfort food served in an upscale setting.

Oddfellow’s Cafe & Bar -
You will be hard-pressed to find a restaurant more environmentally sustainable than Oddfellows. They produce "simple, lovely food” using many sustainable, organic, humane and environmentally friendly ingredients as possible and 90% of all interior is created from salvaged, recycled or repurposed products.
