Seattle is home to a lot of restaurants, and among them are hidden gems some Seattleites just aren't unearthing. To help guide us to these potential discoveries, we've enlisted some of our city's many food luminaries to share with us their under the radar recommendations for a weekly feature dubbed Dining Confidential.
Marcus Charles is a busy man. He's been called a "serial entrepreneur," thanks to his many ventures that include owning The Crocodile, Local 360, and Bell + Whete. He also co-founded the Capitol Hill Block Party and opened Neumo's, Spit Fire, and Bad Juju Lounge. Chances are he's got something else up his sleeve, too.
When Charles has a night off, he and his wife venture to Crow in Queen Anne:
Crow, on the lower south slope of Queen Anne, is a restaurant my wife and I frequent for a night out. The bartender knows us and our drink order, and we like the laid back vibe. Their pan roasted chicken is one of my favorite dishes. It’s perfectly moist on the inside, crisp on the outside, and it’s wrapped in proscuitto.
