Beloved lunch counters, oyster houses, roadside diners and elegant dining rooms—Seattle has seen the best of them all come and go. Manca's Café invented the beloved Dutch Baby pancake, while Trader Vic's gained reverence for its legendary Mai Tais. Places like the railroad car–themed Andy's Diner and the Twin T-P's with its iconic wigwam-shaped dining rooms live on in the city's culinary memory long after their departure. Author Chuck Flood celebrates nearly a thousand of Seattle's vanished eateries, their cuisines and recipes along with a few resilient survivors.
