Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood (the city’s historically queer neighborhood that's still a hotspot for LGBTQ activism and nightlife) has long inspired a vibrant scene of adventurous chefs, pop-ups turned brick-and-mortar, and some of the finest restaurants in the city. Before the pandemic, Capitol Hill was probably Seattle’s most rapidly growing dining area. This year has seen a resurgence in exciting restaurant openings in the neighborhood, with a Galician tapas bar serving up gussied-up versions of Spanish classics and Kōbo, star chef Shota Nakajima’s new restaurant in Redhook Brewlab offering karaage-topped pizza, among other chaotic fusion munchies. Meanwhile, Seattle institutions like John Sundstrom’s fine-dining restaurant Lark and Italian staples Spinasse and Artusi are still going strong in the neighborhood. It’s looking like the Hill will remain one of of best dining neighborhoods in Seattle, offering a level quality and range across cuisines and dining styles not found elsewhere.
