Catfish Corner

At the corner of Cherry and Martin Luther King, Jr. Way, where the Central District, Leschi, and Madrona neighborhoods converge, you will find this Seattle original in "fast food." Catfish Corner will celebrate its 25th year in business in 2010. As you have guessed from their name, catfish, southern style, is the star of the menu; but, if you are craving red beans and rice, you can get your fix here, as well as sides of okra, corn muffins, and peach cobbler. I was drawn in by the large mural of Dr. King painted by James Crespinel in 1995 on the MLK Way side of the building. Crespinel is a well known painter and muralist, and you may remember his Orca mural I showed you here.

Mmmm, I would love to eat there. I like this shot with a reflecting MLK and reflections in the window glass.

Great spot Kim. Catfish is one of my favorites. Will need to check this place out soon!

«Louis», being of Texas origin, would enjoy the red beans, cornbread and okra. However, the catfish, not so much.... «Louis's» guess is they know how to make good buttermilk biscuits and gravy here, too. Might be worth a trip to Seattle to see.

Wow, that's a compelling shot of a place I'd love to try.

And....how's the food?? There's a place like this in Tacoma that appears to serve soul food, and I'd love to try it....
