As with public schools, town halls, and village idiots, food functions best when it works within the local tradition. Appreciate your area with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $22 worth of locally sourced American fare and drinks at Post in the Market.
Culling its ingredients from Seattle's Pike Place Market, Post in the Market stirs and bakes local edibles into its menu of hearty American fare. Handcrafted pizzas rest red pepper and goat cheese ($8) or chicken pesto ($9) on a doughy platter, just as royal servants do with the king's tinfoil crown. Ocean-going omnivores can avail themselves of the Manny's ale-battered fish and chips ($10.50), and meat munchers can meet their match in the Post signature beef burger topped with Irish cheddar ($12). Familiar tubers receive lavish pampering in preparation for becoming sides of truffle fries ($5), which round out meals and easily upgrade birds' nests.
During pleasant weather, diners can relax on the outdoor patio and take in views of the Olympic mountains or dinosaur ghosts. Inside, Post in the Market welcomes its patrons with rich red tones, salvaged-wood benches, and a fireplace.
