REDMOND, Wash. — You would be hard-pressed to find anyone who loves giving comfort through food more than Chef Lisa Dupar.

Her restaurant, Pomegranate Bistro, has become a Redmond retreat. She's written a cookbook, and her successful catering company has cooked for everyone from food royalty to a president.

But despite her full plate, Lisa always makes time to go out and dine. Recently she took Evening to 3 of her favorite eastside restaurants.
