Dahlia Lounge

2001 4th Ave.
Seattle, WA, 98121, United States
TEL: (206) 682-4142

The first of chef-impressario Tom Douglas's numerous Seattle establishments, Dahlia opened in 1989 and is credited with practically inventing contemporary Pacific Northwest cuisine, with its focus on local, sustainably produced ingredients, and fusion of Asian and American flavors, and cooking techniques. The Belltown restaurant channels a sexy vibe with Chinoiserie-red walls, twinkling lanterns, and intimate banquets. Although the menu changes daily, a typical dinner may start with local oysters from the raw bar, or wild-boar pate served with dried cherries, pistachio, and pickles. The rotisserie-roasted, five-spice duck with pad Thai is a Dahlia favorite.

Insider Tip:

Come during happy hour (Monday - Friday from 5 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.) to sample Rainer beer cockatils like skip and go naked, made with lemonade, rainer, and gin, for just $6.
