Seattle Magazine just posted a very positive feature story on Burien (complete with photo essay), with mentions of The Tin Room, Australian Pie Company, Elliott Bay Brewery, The Mark and many more.

Here’s an excerpt:

Forget the South King County Jokes; Why You Should Head to Burien

Just south of Seattle, nestled between Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and Puget Sound, is Burien, one of the area’s oldest, longest-established communities. Any town with a 100-plus-year history is apt to have tales to tell, and Burien does: It languished for decades after Southcenter Mall, built in nearby Tukwila in the late ’60s, lured shoppers away and forced local business owners to close their doors. Several years ago, though, a trickle of new establishments set up shop in the historic shopping district of Burien along SW 152nd Street and ushered in a fresh generation of merchants and restaurateurs. Now, this friendly destination burg brims with charming boutiques and eateries, with more to come: a $200 million town square, which, when completed in 2010, will offer more stores and restaurants as well as a grassy, 1-acre park, library and city hall.
