Golden Beetle serves Eastern Mediterranean eats (that're a staggering 95% certified wild/organic) in a 90-seat blue-trimmed space that's lit by custom-cut glass lanterns.
Tat’s Deli is well known for a bevy of its jam-packed sandwiches, but its classic Philly cheesesteak sandwich takes the crown. Tat’s offers four different variations: a chicken cheesesteak, a pizza steak (with Tat’s marinara and mozzarella), a hoagie steak (topped with lettuce, tomato, and onion for no extra charge), and the OG, which you should order with and Ice-T, obviously. This esteemed P Square spot sports digs lined with simple wooden two-tops and a handful of banquettes, including now serving beer and wine to go with their East-coast-style-awesome sandwiches.
Slim's is the best place to kick back with some brew and some exceptional wings. Don't say we didn't warn you.
As the sole purveyors of the sake slushy, this local Seattle eatery is serving a creative roster of original Asian-inspired dishes. The space, itself, is clean and simple, with long communal teakwood tables, ornate iron-wrought dividers, and a clamoring open kitchen. The food, on the other hand, is complex and multilayered, with dishes like caramelized coconut beef, sweet-soy-chicken katsu omelettes, and perhaps most importantly, the spot's famous chicken wings -- tossed in Serrano chili, toasted garlic, and caramel, and fried twice for maximum crisp. To complete your sticky poultry feast, the beverage list (in addition to the sake slushies), offers a series of inventive house cocktails, a full catalog of beers on tap, and 10 separate varieties of Japanese whiskey.
A Vietnamese restaurant, Ba Bar proudly serves "street food", a principle defined by simplicity and quality. The other half of this eatery's maxim is "cold drink," as in cocktails. Many, many cocktails.
Local 360 sources most things from within 360mi of the city, and Matt's in the Market gets almost everything from the stalls in Pike Place Market downstairs.
Housed in a strip mall on Jackson St, this noodle house is actually the place to go for crunchy, meaty, buttery wings w/ a flaky crust and a dusting of garlicky green onion and chile. Oh, and they only cost $7.
