Thrillist has compiled a list of six new Seattle restaurants to try this weekend. Mkt. in Wallingford, seats only 30 people but what they lack in size, they make up for with their barrel-aged cocktails and locally sourced eats, such as fried quail, and grilled lamb tongue. Restaurant Roux in Fremont is serving up French Creole eats such as gumbo, po’ boys, beignets, and shrimp. Maison Tavern in the SoDo district is the newest speakeasy, featuring old-world Prohibition-style cocktails, burlesque dancers, artisanal plates, and a massive nightclub out back.

The apartments are part of a growing trend of manufactured apartments, arriving complete with plumbing, wiring, fixtures, cabinets, appliances and floor coverings.
