“Where should I eat in Seattle?” Whether you’re a first-time visitor or a lifer, that question is seemingly simple but the answers are infinitely complex. Some of the main factors to consider are the type of food, price point, neighborhood, and occasion. That’s why Eater’s map of 38 essential Seattle restaurants exists. This curated list of suggestions attempts to capture the diversity of the food scene in Seattle and its suburbs, from tamale walk-up windows to 12-seat fine dining Filipino destinations, from classic French cafes to modern sushi bars, and so much more. Every place on the list has been open for at least six months or so, proving its merit.
Of course, this list is subjective and Seattle’s dining scene changes constantly, which is why the map updates every quarter — removal from the Eater 38 doesn’t mean a restaurant isn’t still awesome and won’t return in the future.
