Can you believe it's almost the 20th anniversary of the blockbuster romantic comedy Sleepless in Seattle ? The film, starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, was filmed in Seattle and Baltimore and remains a favorite of movie buffs around the world. In addition to scenery, several landmark restaurants were featured in pivotal scenes, including the Athenian Seafood Restaurant at Pike Place Market.

Chef Ricardo Jimenez from Athenian Seafood Restaurant joined Margaret to re-live their experience through food. He prepared the clam dish shared by Tom Hanks and Rob Reiner in a pivotal scene filmed at the restaurant, as well as Tiramisu (those of you who have seen the movie know exactly what this is about!)
