1. Grace Kitchen 2630 NE University Village St, Seattle, WA 98105 (University District)

Formerly the design debacle known as Zao Noodle Bar, this glass-walled cube in the middle of U-Village has been seriously classed-up thanks to expert help from Poppy and Herbfarm's Jerry Traunfeld, who helped engineer a menu of elevated rustic eats, and a decor that resembles a modernist, wood-heavy country kitchen, with a dining room split by two rows of oversized gray banquettes fitted with marble table tops, and a vintage(ish) brick-walled entry.
