Seattle and its many neighborhoods are constantly evolving, with new businesses popping up everywhere to attract new customers and, in the case of the city’s many world-class eateries, offer new flavors. For those already acquainted with Seattle’s best existing eats, we’ve put together a list of the new and notable additions to the city’s thriving food scene.
1501 Pike Pl, Suite #200 This new hotspot is located above the stretch of foodie heaven known as Post Alley, and boasts full-length windows overlooking the waterfront and bustling activity below. The true draws here are seafood selections like the Dungeness crab BLT or the cedar-plank salmon, both prepared in simple-yet-creative ways.
5341 Ballard Ave NW A modest family home in the middle of historic downtown Ballard holds one of the city’s best and most intimate wine bars . A rotating menu of daily specials and gourmet tapas like soft shell crab with Calabrian chili accompanies wines from both local and European growers.
4012 Leary Way NW You don’t know what you’re getting until you get it at this high-end Catalonian eatery , where the daily dishes rotate according to the chef’s liking. The prix fixe menu may or may not feature an enormous plate of paella with fresh strawberry compote for dessert, but you can rest assured every dish comes from the best local producers and tastiest seasonal crops.
6118 12 th Ave S Try a diverse sampling of Mediterranean flavors without breaking the bank at this bright Grecian restaurant in Georgetown. Affordable, house-made dips pair seamlessly with impeccably seasoned entrees fresh from the grill; we recommend the marinated lamb.
6460 24 th Ave NW The diverse creativity of contemporary American cuisine meets the intimacy and atmosphere of an old school French restaurant at Copine . Even the simplest dishes are prepared with unusual ingredients that turn them into complex mini-feasts, like the seared halibut adorned with niçoise olives and tomato raisins.
