Downtown Restaurants in Seattle

Restaurants in downtown Seattle are like hipsters - they're everywhere you look. After an exhausting day of shopping, art galleries and museums, one of these restaurants is sure to have a dish or two you'll enjoy. If you've never visited Seattle, you may be wondering who this "Tom Douglas" person is who comes up when food is mentioned. Douglas is one of Seattle's most famous chefs, and for good reason - each of his restaurants are unique, with truly imaginative menus. Like the Dahlia Lounge on 4th Avenue downtown, Douglas's first restaurant, which offers an amazing brunch, lunch and dinner selection including such items as Columbia River sturgeon and rotisserie roasted five spice duck. For dessert, pop into the Dahlia Bakery next door for a slice of their famous triple coconut cream pie. Lola's is another Douglas restaurant, this one with a more Mediterranean menu, like spicy smoked oysters with dolmades. Both Lola's and the Dahlia Lounge are well-known for their fresh, made-to-order donut holes, which arrive at your table piping hot in a paper bag and are accompanied by mascarpone cheese and jam for dipping. Down by Pike Place Market, Etta's is the Douglas restaurant to try when you want straight up Pacific Northwest cuisine, like crab cakes and clam chowder with brown butter croutons. Or take a stroll down the Waterfront to the Crab Pot, a restaurant featured on Food Network's Man versus Food which offers a big ol' pot of fresh shellfish and encourages messy table manners. Looking for Asian? Locals rave about Wild Ginger, an Asian fusion restaurant and satay bar on 3rd Avenue famous for their flavorful dishes and outstanding service. If it's a thick, juicy steak and potato with all the fixins you're after, try the Metropolitan Grill on 2nd. Italian? Palomino's at the top of the City Centre is the place for your pasta fix. Spanish? Try Tango Tapas, and bring a group so you can sample more dishes. French? Le Pichet on 1st has a menu filled with authentic French regional cuisine expertly prepared. Or maybe just a good slice of pizza will do the trick. Right next to Dahlia Lounge (and also owned by Tom Douglas!) is Serious Pie, and that name should tell you they mean business when it comes to handmade crusts and hardcore toppings.
