Chopstix provides memorable nights with a concoction of dueling pianos, sing-alongs, and delicious American fare. The menu full of chops, seafood, salads, and pasta satisfies stomachs as ears get hand-fed honey-drizzled peanut-butter-stuffed trills and glissandi. Familiar appetizers such as calamari ($8.99) and coconut shrimp ($9.99) provide a tasty preamble to a steak salad ($14.99) strewn with organic greens, blue-cheese crumbles, diced tomatoes, and terra strips. Or opt for the provolone-smothered mushroom chicken ($14.99). The aptly named Sir Elton's London broil ($15.99) gets topped with béarnaise sauce and accompanied by fresh vegetables and mashed potatoes or krinkle-cut fries for a meatsperience that tastes as hearty and delectable as the eponymous knight’s outfits are glittery.
With more than a century of bygone days tucked beneath its foundation, the Historic Everett Theatre is one of the oldest operating theatres in the state of Washington. Today, the nonprofit Everett Theatre Society owns and operates the cinema house, enriching the community through the preservation of film and screenings of celebrated features. From plush red seats, guests watch noir, horror, and cult classics, mouthing memorable lines and shaking their heads at Casablanca's CGI effects. To honor and further the impact of cinema, local expert Jon Noe introduces the film-noir showings, and Historic Everett Theatre hosts the occasional free-movie night.
The Winchester Pub & Eatery’s resident chefs channel the culinary traditions of English and Irish pubs to craft a menu that merges gastronomic ritual with contemporary flair. Commence noshing with an appetizer of cracked wings; coated in the Winchester’s signature sweet orange-bourbon glaze, the wings traverse tongues with a sense of culinary adventure that surpasses Magellan’s most daring forays into Vietnamese cooking. Bolstered by homemade mashed potatoes and brown gravy, entree plates of bangers and mash put a hurt on pesky hunger pangs, and homemade meatloaf sticks to ribs with a nostalgic embrace. Throngs of beverages—including microbrews, specialty cocktails, and Thomas Kemper root beer—wait in the wings to quench parched palates or spontaneously combusting napkins.
Twisted Lime Island Pub's interior—filled with pineapple pendant lamps, surfboards, and tiki masks—emanates the spirit of the tropics. Their island-minded chefs crown meaty burgers with pineapple and coddle key limes until they willingly take up residence inside of a pie shell. A team of bartenders shakes up tropical classics such as tequila sunsets and margaritas. The dulcet tones of live bands and karaoke flood the tropical pub on select nights.
On the weekends between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m., crowds flock to feast on plates of fluffy eggs, huevos rancheros, and biscuits and gravy. Signature omelets feature fresh vegetables and meats while Mom's fried egg sandwich beckons diners to clean up their appetites with a choice of bacon, ham, or sausage–all nestled between two eggs, cheddar cheese, mayo, and a sourdough roll.
Faux marbled walls, stark white pillars, and gold- and burgundy-hued drapes create a stately dining backdrop inside the dining room of Capri Ristorante Italiano. An Italian mural is painted in vivid blues and whites on the domed ceiling, and chandeliers illuminate diners sitting in wrought iron and leather chairs, which is the seating style that 17th-century nobility would have envisioned being in spaceships. Notes from a piano float through the air as servers dispense classic Italian dishes such as meat-stuffed raviolis, chicken parmesan, and four-cheese pizza. Outside, a sculpture recessed in the marigold wall watches over al fresco diners, who also get a front-row seat on select nights for the area’s summer-concert series.
As a former export manager of Alaskan seafood, the sushi chef at Sushi Spott knows his fillets. Fresh catches fill the glass display case at the sushi bar, where nigiri sushi and hand rolls join specialty rolls such as the salmon-skin roll and the citrus-infused lemon roll, whose tuna, avocado, and salmon cannot be made into lemonade. Sushi Spott also dishes out chicken teriyaki, bento boxes, and other entrees amid the dining room's white pendant lamps and decorative Japanese screens.
