Seattle Weekly's Description

Now in bigger, fancier digs, FareStart in Belltown serves tasty lunches cooked by rigorously trained homeless or formerly homeless chefs. The lunch menu has the basics—turkey sandwiches, burgers, and fish and chips—but also ranges upscale with entrees like seared scallops over beluga lentils. Its pork-shoulder sandwich with beer-battered onion rings and chipotle aioli is a sight to behold. Each Thursday night, a visiting chef prepares a special three-course menu for only $29.95. Some dinners sell out weeks in advance, so check the organization's Web site (www.farestart.org) for the guest chef schedule and reserve your table early.

Tips from foursquare

  • The Seattle Times on 05/26/10

    Fantabulous fine-dining room, bargain-priced flatiron steak came capped with a pair of beer-battered onion rings, the rosy beef arrayed over sautéed greens in a luxurious moat of blue cheese sauce.

    Andrew Zimmern took the role of guest chef here. This restaurant gives recovering addicts, ex-cons and others a second chance by teaching them culinary skills. As seen on Bizarre Foods America.
