Apparently, Trader Joe’s has extended its wide reach to Seattle’s posh restaurants. Recently, at a pre-performance dinner close to Seattle’s On the Boards, I found that lite fare menu choices were rather limited. At the elegant restaurant, I asked where the salami came from. “Trader Joe’s,” the waitress said. And a handful of other items as well. We no longer need to go to Trader Joe’s – it’s coming to us. Next time you’re out to eat, best to ask where your food’s coming from – you might be surprised.
