If you've ever walked through the parking lot of Wells Fargo in Ballard, or had the fortune of continuing down to the Ballard Health Club, you know what I'm talking about. There's this scent that lurks in the air, and beckons you to find it's source. I can't describe it except to say that it smells like someone is having a great meal, and you're missing out.
Curious, Alex and I went to Lombardi's the other day, and have already been back since. We had great food for a very reasonable price. As soon as they brought out the baked garlic clove to accompany our bread, they had me in the palms of their hands. I love garlic. Drenched in olive oil, and softened up in the oven, the garlic was a wonderful substitution for butter.
By the way, they have a three course dinner special for a pretty good price (like under $15?) You have to get there early, and it's only Sunday thru Thursday.
