The Stranger

Dear readers,

We need your help. The coronavirus crisis in Seattle is a major threat to The Stranger's ability to keep the city informed. We pride ourselves on having navigated many storms in the world of independent local media, but this time is different.

90% of our revenue—from advertising, ticketing fees, and our own events—is directly tied to people getting together in groups. The coronavirus situation has virtually eliminated this income all at once. At a time when the city needs local coverage more than ever, we're asking for your help to support continued coverage of everything happening in Seattle. You can make one-time or recurring donations. We can't say enough how much we appreciate your support. Thank you.

Chef Sun Hong, who has been running a hand roll sushi pop-up called By Tae (meaning "by hand"), has opened this counter in the former space of Petite Galette, with hand rolls available for dining in or to-go, and sake to drink. Bon Appetit deputy editor Julia Kramer called it "a hand-roll counter with a surplus of personality" and selected it as a nomination for the magazine's 50 best new restaurants in the U.S. for 2019.
