Downtown — for the purposes of this map, a district gerrymandered to combine areas typically known as Downtown, Pike Place Market, and Denny Triangle — is a sea of offices filled to the brim with hungry people working the good old nine-to-five, and much of the action shuts down relatively quickly once happy hour passes. A plethora of potential daytime customers means that there the restaurants here have a particular focus on satisfying business lunches.
If you're hunting for an exciting new place to pass your lunch break, Eater's got your back with the top lunch joints opened or significantly changed within the last year or so. This list doesn't include classic standbys — everyone knows by now where to get fresh piroshky or stand in line for handmade pasta — but rather speaks to the diner seeking the latest and greatest in these ever-changing times.
