Unique-to-Seattle restaurants that are good for dining solo?

It turns out that I'll have a day to myself during an upcoming trip to Seattle. Where are the best restaurants to eat by myself? Looking for something a little more relaxed and not packed with great food options that are unique to the city!

    The Local 360 on 1st in Belltown has the best food in the city. Every time I find myself in Seattle, I make it a point to go there. Try anything with the fried chicken and the PBJ Bon Bons!

      Great suggestion, Angie. I love Local 360. Oyster happy hour! By the way, I'm a community manager here and I've helped you highlight the restaurant in your answer on a map! In the future, you can do this yourself as you answer a question by simply typing the @-symbol followed by the name of the place. Take a look at your map next to your answer :) · (0 likelikes)

    Try Matt's in The Market right in the Pike Place Market. Any of Tom Douglas's restaurants are great too: Dahlia Lounge, Lola, Palace Kitchen. Have fun!

    If you haven't been to the market yet, there are a lot of great options there, you can eat while you walk around and look.

    I always hit up Ellenos Real Greek Yogurt (best yogurt in the world) and Piroshky Piroshky.

    If the rumors are true Paseo Caribbean Restaurant re-opened. Worth the wait in line and it is usually the first place I have to go in Seattle (don't tell my aunt.)

    I recommend Artusi near Capitol Hill - great ambiance, small tables or bar seating, delicious food, inventive cocktails!

    Hi Aerin,

    At first I thought of old trusties such as the Fishermans Restaurant on Pier 57 and Serious Pie & Biscuit. But honestly, it doesn't get much better than the Musicquarium Lounge at the The Triple Door. Not only does it serve the incredible pan-Asian fare of Wild Ginger, it also has live music almost every night (and no cover charge). The seating in the lounge ranges from barstools to four-tops to booths, and solo diners aren't conspicuous at all. Parking requires either a hefty fee or a hike up a hill, but buses are easy and it's walkable from much of the downtown core.

    Seattle has a great dining scene! Check out Cafe Campagne near Pike's Place. It's one of my favorite restaurants of all time. Breakfast/lunch is amazing-try the stupendous croque madame or Ouefs en Meurette. Both are amazing. The bar is small (seats maybe 4 people) and the place is really cozy and friendly, so you will have an enjoyable time dining solo.

    Hi Aerin,

    you should try Pike Place Market. This is a famous place for Seattle and there are all kind of restaurants there or pretty close. Also in the Fremont Neighborhood there are a lot of nice restaurants, but I dont have any specific recommendation for you unfortunately.
