Petra Mediterranean Bistro

Sigh. Holidays are over. We savored our traditional, often less-than-healthy dishes. Even though we tried, there's just so much to enjoy! It's time to jump back on the Mediterranean diet bandwagon. And that means Petra! It's not a diet, it's simply eating more vegetables, nuts, whole grains, legumes, and fish. Petra makes it easy with items like baba ghanouje (grilled eggplant mixed with garlic and tahini); labnie (yogurt with olives, tomatoes, cucumbers); Veggie Royale (kabob with cauliflower, garlic, onions, tomatoes, pine nuts and almonds). When something is this good for you and tastes great, too, it's a great new year. Head in soon!

Petra Mediterranean Bistro offers lunch Monday-Friday 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Dinner is offered weekdays 4:30-9 p.m. and Saturday 4-9 p.m. Happy Hour 4:30-6 p.m. Closed Sundays. Petra is located at 2501 4th Avenue in the Belltown neighborhood. 206.728.5389.

Jetty Bar & Grille

This is the definitive Pacific Northwest dining experience - from the food to the views to the overall atmosphere. Menu items are sourced from local purveyors, delivering classic Pacific Northwest coastal cuisine, along with hand-crafted cocktails and local beer and wine. Enhancing the area's distinctive nautical feel, the floor-to-ceiling windows afford awe-inspiring views of the marina with warm, natural lighting. Located right by the marina, Jetty Bar & Grille is the perfect eatery for boaters and guests alike.

Jetty Bar and Grill is located inside Hotel Indigo at 1028 13th Street in Everett and offers breakfast Monday-Friday 6:30-11 a.m. and on weekends from 7-11 a.m. Lunch daily from 11:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Dinner 5-10 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and 5-11 p.m. on weekends.

Revolve Food : Wine

Winter's a great time to hunker down with comfort food, but perhaps you don't want to break your resolution for a night out. Revolve's January fresh sheet focuses on keto-friendly items. Keto is low carb (no sugars/starches) with fats allowed. Without consuming carbs, your body burns stored fat for energy, helping with weight loss. Sounds like no fun? Read on: 100% grass-fed ribeye steak topped with butter and herbs, with cheesy radish au gratin, and roasted broccoli. Bacon-wrapped chicken breast with cauli-rice, and sautéed zucchini. Low-carb sides, veggies, sauces; wild-caught seafood, organic chicken, humanely-raised pork. Very comforting!
