A few notes from around the neighborhood:
Seattle Times reviews Little Water Cantina: Providence Cicero of the Times reviewed Eastlake's newest restaurant, Little Water Cantina, on Friday. Cicero loved the view at Little Water and most of what she ate.
Noting that chef and Little Water co-owner Shannon Wilkinson (with his wife, Laura) worked on TV's "Top Chef," Cicero wrote that Wilkinson "filters his love of Mexican cuisine through a TV producer's lens. Nearly every plate is ready for its glamour shot. The best of them thrill with clean, focused flavors."
