Proper Eats in SeattleFor a great aperativo:
The Brooklyn (downtown)-a bakers dozen of thirteen different oysters, you get a menu of that describes all the various types of oysters you are eating, get a glass of champagne.
Shiro's (downtown)- The best in the city and pricey, fresh and original.
Izumi's (Totem Lake/Eastside)-Best on the Eastside.
Noble Court-(Bellevue) A great variety of authentic dim sum.
Kowloon Seafood (Chinatown)-really big place but fast service
Cafe Juanita-(Juanita/Eastside) The best on the Eastside, great pasta, medium-upscale, great meats, original menu, pricey but worth it.
Lampreia-(Downtown) If you want to splurge, this is the place. Beyond Pricey but THE BEST!!!!
El Gaucho (Downtown) With a cigar room and great steaks, this place is a meat lovers haven.
The Metropolitian Grill- (Downtown) Great crab cakes and steaks to die for.
MISC, ETHNIC and SEAFOOD
Lola-greek and morrocan inspired
The Palace Kitchen-NW fare
La Tutta Bella-pizza
Many more but I have eaten at all of these restaurants and can recommend them. I have eaten at many more that I like but don't love and don't want to spend more of my money on. Good luck!
