After the meeting at Olson Kundig, we went to Steelhead Diner for dinner. They participate in the Dine Around Seattle promotion that a lot of Seattle restaurants do in November. This year, it’s 3-for-30, or 3 courses for $30. From their menu, I had the clam chowder and Gay had the fried oysters for appetizers and I had the salmon and Gay had the ribeye steak for the entree. They were out of the chocolate pecan pie dessert that I wanted so I got the spiced pumpkin creme brulée and Gay got the chocolate mousse. Everything was delicious.
We met with Tom and Dan this afternoon their third round of drawings. Today the firm, Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen, announced its name change to the shorter Olson Kundig. A big change for a firm that has been around as long as they have. But it’s easier to say!
The latest drawings included one was what we essentially designed at the last meeting and there were two modified versions of it. One of the alternatives had a different placement for the kitchen that we liked. We changed to that and spent some time taking the stuff we liked from last week’s design. The next drawing may be pretty close to the actual schematic design.
