French Onion soup and pretty windows on a rainy afternoon (Place Pigalle, Pike Place Market, Seattle)

There are so many different ways to eat in Pike Place Market.  You inevitably will be offered samples of chocolate pasta, sliced fruit, Chukar cherries, and yogurt to tease your palate as you pass through the market stalls.  You might grab a pastry or Hom Bow to munch while you walk from Piroshky Piroshky or Mee Sum Pastry.  But sometimes you want to sit and gaze out at spectacular Elliot Bay and feel like you have all the time in the world and that is when Place Pigalle might be the perfect restaurant.

I saw a few pictures from Place Pigalle recently and I thought it would be a lovely place to spend some time so I grabbed one of my favorite people and decided to try it out.

When you eat leisurely on a weekday, it totally feels like a weekend.

And suddenly it’s Friday again.

The French Onion soup here is one of the best I’ve had.

Next time I’ll make a reservation so we get a window seat-we still had a nice view from our table, but the grass is always greener somewhere else and it was pouring rain when we got here so we’ll hopefully have green grass in Seattle this summer too.  (The weather right now is so stormy-it’s hard to believe there were weeks this last summer that I wondered if there would ever be rain in Seattle again.)

(PS. I’m so thankful for all the amazing places I’ve seen thanks to my 52 weeks at new places in Pike Place Market project. It’s definitely added something new to look forward to every week.)

(PPS. If you’re ever in the market, please say hi to my friend Rachel and drop in some spare change.  The Pike Place Market supports an amazing community and the coins do a LOT of good in Seattle.)
