The 38 Essential Seattle Restaurants, July 2011

View as Map

Introducing the Eater 38, your answer and ours to any question that begins, "Can you recommend a restaurant?" This group covers the entire city, spans myriad cuisines and collectively satisfies all of your restaurant needs, save for those occasions when you absolutely must spend half a paycheck (i.e. no Herbfarm, Metropolitan Grill and their ilk). Every couple of months, we'll update the list with pertinent restaurants that were omitted, have newly become eligible (restaurants must be open at least six months) or have stepped up their game.

And so, without further ado (and in no particular order), we present the Seattle Eater 38.

For those of you readying the pitchforks because your favorite restaurant isn't on the list, wouldn't it just be more productive to nominate it for inclusion? State your cases for (or against) restaurants in the comments or in the tipline.
