There is an initial stir walking into blueacre. It's just a little too perfect. The raw bar, split seating areas, private dining room, the art, the simplicity. Maybe just a little over-thought on ticking all the design boxes. That all fades upon...

88 Yesler Way, Seattle, WA 98104, USA

If you're used to ultra-cheap, no-frills congee at dim sum restaurants, Kraken Congee will be a revelation. This hidden-away Pioneer Square basement restaurant features tasty Asian fusion small plates and Pacific Northwest-inspired congee. Try the...

My pick for the best cafe in Seattle, Macrina Bakery's headquarters in SoDo, has one of the coolest features I've ever seen: two giant glass windows that let you look into the kitchen and watch the show. Macrina's workers operate at a nonstop,...

Comfort food doesn’t have to be heavy and drowned in grease: just try pho, the light and flavorful Vietnamese soup that’s much loved by Seattleites. Than Brothers is the local chain, with locations all around town, but the Capitol Hill one is one...

There’s nothing fancy about Ezell’s, a hole-in-the-wall fried chicken joint in Seattle's Central District—there isn’t even seating. But that’s not the point. You don’t go to Ezell’s for the ambience; you go for the crispy, batter-fried drumsticks,...

Don’t be discouraged when you see the long line winding through the store, out onto the sidewalk, and back into the building — it moves surprisingly fast, and Piroshky Piroshky is worth it. Plus, the wait will give you time to peruse the glass...

525 Rainier Ave S, Seattle, WA 98144, USA
$$$$
It sounds like a Portlandia sketch: the Northwest pizza joint with an on-site chicken coop, where you can get any pie topped with a soft-cooked egg. But Humble Pie is quite serious about their pizza (and their chickens); their goal is balancing...

Post-afternoon arrival in Seattle we stumbled into Georgetown, between the airport and downtown. Eight of us were seated at a huge wood table and enjoyed great service, local beer, and great combos of local grown and raised food. Nice lighting,...

The menu at Sitka & Spruce is seasonal and hyper-local, presented as shareable small plates. Think dishes like roasted broccoli, anchovies, pickled seaweed, dill and breadcrumbs; or king salmon, Saskatoon berries, turnips and kohlrabi broth....

The Elliott Bay Book Company is THE Seattle bookstore and, thankfully, survived its move from Pioneer Square to Capitol Hill five years ago with soul and towering cedar bookcases intact. Elliott Bay lost a significant chunk of square footage...

325 5th Ave N, Seattle, WA 98109, USA
This sheet-metal fever dream of architect Frank Gehry is like a rock ’n’ roll Guggenheim, home to interactive and innovative exhibits that span music, sci-fi and fantasy, animation, video games and other scrambled bits of pop culture. A hands-on...

Pioneer Square, Seattle, WA 98104, USA
One of Seattle's most postcard-friendly areas, Pioneer Square is a beautiful, historical neighborhood with plenty to do. The galleries come alive for First Thursday art walks, not to mention the delicious lunch spots, quirky boutiques, and vibrant...
