I suppose living in Seattle has it advantages, there are lots of different cultures here and restaurants to reflect it. And I'll try just about anything at least once, even the Shad roe. Caviar is not on the list, but that is where I draw the line. I will eat raw oysters as I don't think they're that bad, but I do think they're overpriced.
