Restaurants in Seattle

Seattle restaurants honor the Pacific Northwest with fresh-off-the-boat seafood and ingredients that are organic, seasonal, and locally grown. Expect everything from robust American fare and classic French dishes to pan-Asian plates and inventive Italian. Don't forget to sip a cup of locally roasted Joe from one of the many independent and trend-setting coffee shops.

  • The city's vibrant culinary scene is fueled by the popularity of Pike Place Market, which is filled with colorful food stalls and also houses some of the best restaurants in Seattle.
  • Seattle's fishing industry means fresh seafood is a standby here. In addition to more formal restaurants, there are lots of pop-up restaurants and food trucks in this vein.
  • ART Restaurant embodies the local food philosophy with a menu driven by local growers and seasonal produce.
  • Fonda La Catrina and La Medusa are two of the top restaurants in Seattle. Fonda La Catrina is a Mexican restaurant where you can watch tortillas being made right in front of you; pozole (or pork tamales) are one of their top delicacies.
