The other day, I ran into an Amazon staff member who moved from the ID office to Lake Union.
“How do you like working in Lake Union?” I asked.
“We really [miss] the ID’s ethnic mix of restaurants,” she replied.
I was surprised that the first thing she thought about was the food. She didn’t mention anything about the new building, which is considered to be state-of-the-art. It also has a lake view.
Do I need to say that the Lake Union restaurants are a lot more expensive than the ID restaurants? If you are by yourself, you can go out to eat in the ID. There are many smaller restaurants that make people feel comfortable enough to dine alone. It might not be as easy to eat alone at Lake Union. Let’s hope employees don’t get tired of bringing sandwiches to work! ♦
