Seattle, WA Restaurant Guide

The modern-day farm-to-table movement doesn’t exist without the Pacific Northwest – and Seattle is right at the heart of it. One of the country’s most experienced and sophisticated dining scenes, Seattle has always focused on fresh catches, fresh vegetables, and fresh approaches to cooking. So whether you’re picking out piroshkis at Pike’s Place Market or looking to bite into some Bok Choy in Ballard, we’ve got you covered.

Let’s start with Seattle’s neighborhoods.  Between cultural districts with rich histories and revitalized neighborhoods with positive vibes, Seattle has great neighborhoods to discover.  We’re aiming to cover all of the incredible neighborhoods in Seattle – everything from beach West Seattle to historical Pioneer Square to brilliant meals in Ballard.  To start, we’ve got the best meals to eat around Capitol Hill and great restaurants near Lumen Field.

Seattle’s waterfront history is rich.  As one of the key shipping lanes to Asia, millions of goods and products come through Seattle’s ports every year.  With dozens of miles of waterfront property in the Seattle area, we’re covering a list of some of Seattle’s best waterfront restaurants.  In fact, Seattle’s waterfront is so appealing, that millions of visitors fly every year to visit the pearl of the Pacific Northwest.  For those taking a romantic waterfront getaway, Seattle is second to none.  We cover the most romantic restaurants in Seattle in our guides.

Going back to the connection to Asia via Seattle’s shipping history – Seattle’s Asian community is one of the largest and most vibrant in the country.  With hundreds of thousands of Japanese and Chinese immigrants in the area, along with access to fresh seafood from its coastal location, Seattle has the best Sushi spots and Dim Sum dining in America.  You can find Seattle’s best Sushi, Ramen, Chinese food and more in our guides.

Seattle is also known for its left-of-center, healthy approach to personal health and the environment.  That’s why Seattle’s vegan and vegetarian communities are enormous – and why the Vegan and Vegetarian restaurants are world-class.  We’re visiting vegan and vegetarian spots all over the Seattle area and covering the best bites of each in our blogs.  

Finally, like many west coast cities, Seattle’s start came from adventurers, explorers, and prospectors coming to the area looking for gold.  Like many at the time, they relied on sourdough bread to keep them fed during that journey.  That tradition has stayed all along the west coast, not just in San Francisco.  Seattle bakeries make incredible bread, pastries, and other goods dating back over a century.  We list some of our favorites – along with the best cafes in a coffee-loving town – in our guides.
