Located in The Palladian Hotel, this bright and naturally lit restaurant offers a refreshing retreat from the bustling pavements of the neighborhood. From fish stew to cod suppli, the hearty, sea derived dishes here are sure to satisfy.
Specializing in “Greek recipes from Earth and sea," you can come with a big group or small -- Omega Ouzeri can accommodate all group sizes with its large communal table and smaller scale seating arrangements. Highlights here include the Lavraki (whole grilled branzino) and Octapodi, which is grilled octopus with Yukon gold potatoes and goat horn chile vinaigrette.
This combo market/restaurant/bar is essentially foodie paradise. Oh and did we mention they have espresso, a cheese and charcuterie bar, and more? Whether you’re looking for something to grab to-gho or want to savor a glass of something nice, you’ve come to the right place.
Hotel Albatross is the new Tiki haunt off Market. What to expect here? Puffy tacos, a cool walk-up window, and parrot garnished cocktails.
Yet another reason to visit Pioneer Square! Casco Antiguo is split into two different parts -- a restaurant and a speakeasy-style bar complete with a back alley entrance where the margaritas flow freely (on tap, actually).
A slab of pie just sounds so much better than a slice of it. Slab purveys all kinds of goodies like its Cubano and meat pie . The beauty of this place? You can add crispy chicken skin to any sandwich here for just $2 more.
Cantina Leña is inspired by the flavors of the Yucatan, plus this spot has a complete bar and you never have to make a reservation. Pop in for the crispy pork carnitas nachos and stay for the Leña Toddy.
This Capitol Hill spot located helmed by Lisa Nakamura, has gnocchi prepared in myriad ways with both polenta and potatoes. You can’t go wrong with the potato gnocchi with braised chicken, capers, asparagus, and cider butter.
