Best Restaurants in Seattle

Dining in Seattle is much like the city itself, a cosmopolitan affair born from the fruits of the wilderness. The surrounding Puget Sound, with reserves from Alaska, is one large barrel of seafood and when coupled with produce grown from many small local farms, lets restaurants use the ingredients, rather than fanciful preparation, to make masterful dishes. Added to traditional Northwestern cuisine like wild salmon or dungeness crab is a strong Asian influence, both from the large Asian-American communities and Seattle''s importance as a trade port on the Pacific Rim. Restaurants are helped by great views of the sea and many funky neighbourhoods giving either a quiet romantic or fun and festive ambiance to a meal. Some of the best areas for eating out in Seattle are the waterfront district near Pike''s Place Market, a long line of fine dining along 1st and 2nd Ave, and Capitol Hill. In general the Northwest''s formality is a little toned down and most top restaurants don''t require a jacket. Tipping is between 15 to 20 percent and most places require a reservation.
