Crush, Seattle


2319 E. Madison St.,
United States,

Winner of the James Beard Award for Best Chef Northwest 2010, chef Jason Wilson opened this celebrated New American restaurant in 2005. Located in Madison Valley, Crush is set inside a century-old Tudor-style house with a triangular gable and an outdoor patio. The two dining rooms—one on each floor—are designed in a contrasting minimalist style with cream-colored walls, chocolate brown accents, and white plastic chairs. Combining high-quality international ingredients with local organics, chef Wilson creates signature dishes like sautéed foie gras “steak” and slow-braised short rib. Crush also has an award-winning wine list and a six-course tasting menu.
