Every since the Seattle Weekly stopped doing their best restaurants and just has an unsorted “listing”:ttp://www.seattleweekly.com/listings/dining/, the new “Seattle Magazine”:http://seattlemag.com/ME2/Audiences/dirmod.asp?sid=&nm=&type=Publishing&mod=Publications%3A%3AArticle&mid=3E1DA341B2834604B64A1EB3BA74CCFB&tier=4&id=8F2C7CC3E6DA41C6BE7DD9FB6EAC669B has been filling the void. Main issue is that they don’t publish everything on the web. Really sad since they don’t get web advertising yet obviously in the 21st century! Or community reviews at “diningguide.com”:http://seattle.diningguide.com/dl1dt.htm or “Citysearch”:http://seattle.citysearch.com/bestof/winners/downtown_restaurant which I haven’t found that reliable.
Here are some of the hot restaurants in Seattle:
* Qube. Ultrahip Belltown pan-Asian
* Palace Kitchen part of the tome Douglas empire.
* “94 Stewart”:http://seattle.citysearch.com/profile/41699033/seattle_wa/94_stewart_restaurant.html
* Campagne for classic French
* Union Restaurant
* “Troiani”:http://seattle.diningguide.com/data/d100626.htm for classic northern Italian.
* “Boat Street Cafe”:http://www.seattleweekly.com/listings/dining/173440/ which is really done on Western, but good
For some ethnic choices, besides the old standbyes try:
“Bada Sushi”:http://badasushi.com is way up in Shoreline, but is amazingly fresh.
“May”:http://mayrestaurant.com. It is a good Thai restaruant that is quite authentic.
“Jasmine”:http://seattlejasminerestaurant.com. Besides the long URL, it is the second decent Vietnamese place after Tamarind Tree.
