Things are breezy at Salty’s on Alki Beach where surf ’n’ turf fare is enjoyed alongside Elliot Bay views before the Seattle city skyline. Out on two levels of deck under stringed bulbs, you can weave between table umbrellas to spot garlic-chili prawns with sticky rice or a coulotte cut in a miso-apple glaze with smoked shiitakes. It’s beachside, so you’ll fit in just as easily in boat shoes and a blazer as a tee and a cap. The famous brunch buffet is what really rocks the boat, with live piano tunes and as much country sausage, crab legs, steamer clams and herb-crusted catfish as you can hold in your hull. The bloody mary bars aren’t unlimited, but you can customize your own with toppings and hot sauces at the bar devoted to them.
