A restaurant empire, that is. A tech empire seems to be all everyone is talking about these days, but I want to highlight the Seattle restaurant group owner Tom Douglas. He’s growing restaurants like mushrooms. How can anyone keep up?

The group now owns 11 places. Lunch spots and full restaurants. Tom always occupied a corner in Belltown with several restaurants, but he took full advantage of the South Lake Union expansion and added  the Dalia Workshop, Serious Pie Westlake, Ting Momo and Bravehorse Tavern, and Cuoco.

Incredible… how am I ever going to eat myself through his empire?
