Sometimes there’s nothing better than a satisfying steak — and those looking for premium cuts of meat expertly aged, seasoned, and cooked (or in tartare form) have come to the right place. Seattle has easy access to many of the best sustainable farms and ranches in the country, while also offering a wide variety of cuisines that deliver fantastic meaty dishes. During the pandemic, this list has expanded beyond classic steakhouses to include butcher shops (several of which offer prepared meals as well). Here, carnivores should find plenty to love from the selections, whether it’s mesquite-grilled carne asada, kalbi short ribs, or a Frenchified whole animal extravaganza, listed from north to south.
While all the places listed offer takeout, a number of Seattle restaurants have resumed indoor and outdoor dining. The level of service offered is indicated on each map point. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the King County’s COVID update page. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.Read More
