You are a fast learner!
Hmmm, weirdos, revolutionaries, and rogues. Here are some that pop to mind.
Matt Dillon is who I think pushed the local food trend in Seattle.
I guess Mashiko falls under both revolutionary and rogue. He serves only sustainable fish and I think they are the only place in town to do so.
More on the rogue side of things, if you have a night sans kids, you could go for some offal at Radiator Whiskey.
And it doesn't get much weirder than Michael Hebb and Death over Dinner!
