The goal at Madison Park Conservatory is to offer a warm, community-style atmosphere in which customers can enjoy its menu of new American cuisine. This is amplified by the fine selection of wines and cocktails available, because, as we all know, alcohol brings everyone closer together. It's scientific fact.
German resto Von Trapp's three core principles are bocce, brats, and beer. Hit the court and finish off with a hearty chicken wiener schnitzel.
Maneki is the last surviving restaurant from Seattle’s once bustling Japantown, so you know they must be doing something right. The family-owned restaurant has established itself as a local favorite. Fun—almost unbelievable—fact: in the 1930s, one of Maneki’s dishwashers was Takeo Miki, who later served as Japan’s prime minister. What’s even more unbelievable is how good Maneki’s sushi is.
This 122-seat comida-ry from the dudes behind Ballard's hyper-successful French spot Bastille was inspired by a vintage neon "Poquitos" sign they salvaged five years ago, and is rife with south-of-the-border dishes.
For over 20 years, Ezell's has been serving up some of Seattle's favorite fried chicken. They've got plenty of locations all over Washington, and cater events, so they can bring their battered-n-fried awesomeness straight to you.
Brought to Amazon-land by the same crew behind Cuoco, this second story, brick- and blonde wood-heavy 200-seater is dominated by a giant three-sided bar that boasts 24 taps, and features two retro-style shuffleboard tables beneath massive metal skylights.
This Ballard Frenchtaurant's motto is "Damn good French cuisine", so come here to down the likes of gourmet steak frites, moules frites, and lots of good things that don't involve "frites", like the tasty wines by the glass.
