Stephanie from New York City asked

What are the best restaurants in Seattle?

I'm going to be in Seattle for a weekend for work and would love to try out a few of the best restaurants in town. Willing to splurge, so I'm not concerned with price but also looking for some casual spots as well. What are Seattle's "must eat" places? Thanks!

Stephanie, welcome to Seattle (whenever you're here!). Here are my top choices:

Also, you should try the Dyne app* to see if there are any good events that weekend; you might get something really awesome that's only happening when you're in town!

*Disclosure -- I work for Dyne :) But they do offer AWESOME dining events like pop-ups!

In Pike Place Market my favorite spots for a quick bite were Pike Place Chowder and Piroshky Piroshky and Rachel's Ginger Beer for a tasty Moscow Mule. Lines for chowder and piroshkys can be long but it is SO worth it - the Beef & Cheese and the Salmon were delicious!

For a great dinner in the market we loved Pink Door - Italian-American cuisine in a very charming setting-good for a date or for groups. They also have cabaret on Saturday nights and trapeze artists on swings above you on Sundays and Mondays AND their outdoor patio has wonderful views for lunch on a nice day. I wrote about our dinner there in detail here.

For breakfast/brunch we loved Lola - the Eggs Benedict with the smashed potatoes still makes my mouth water just thinking about it, more on Lola here. Definitely recommend reservations at both spots!

The best restaurant in Seattle is Canlis. It is in the University District and is considered one of the 10 best restaurants in the U. S. The food is absolutely top shelf. But they are a little full of themselves. They tell you coat and tie required - and they mean it. I have been told of men who show up without a coat or tie and they do serve them. But, when they leave, they are told to never come back.

Small note: Canlis is *not* in the University District. Lower Queen Anne is probably the best description of location.
