Diners in Seattle, whether they're moss-backed natives or transplants who just happen to live here now, probably do what everyone else does on an average night: Go for pizza or teriyaki or burgers, right? But when visitors come to Seattle, whether it's an old college roommate or Aunt Minnie from Minneapolis, they tend to clamor for the entire "Seattle experience." Fair enough.
So here's a primer to the area's iconic dishes that should satisfy first-timers and veterans of the local scene — and they don't even require a trip up the Space Needle. There's plenty of seafood, like oysters at Taylor Shellfish Farms bars; there's classy Canlis' compelling table-side salad; there's the ultimate pho at Ba Bar; and there's even the cheeky inclusion of a ubiquitous cinnamon bun for the sweet-toothed.
