The London Plane
There was a short time where Pioneer Square looked like a lost cause, a once-bustling historic neighborhood that had been lost to shuttered businesses and drug deals. But the downtown-adjacent blocks have seen a resurgence in recent years, nowhere more evident than behind the tall windows of London Plane, where light reaches every white pillar and inch of wood floor. Here's the situation: A small shop sells flowers and baked goods, while dinner service features themed prix fixe meals. During the day, order off a more conventional menu of farm-to-table fare.
