We never tire of this classic date night combo, whether it involves grabbing a bite before or dessert and coffee, post viewing. Bravo for these well-located theaters and restaurants, allowing for easy access to both.
Seattle's first art-house movie theater remains one of its best. The snack bar is heads above the competition for starters. And the selection of movies continues to be inspired after all these years. Bravo!
It's an institution, this local burger chain that prides itself on using fresh ground beef and making hand-cut fries. So cheap! Gotta love the family friendly vibe.
Love the concept of bringing together all sorts of different tastes on one plate, but if that seems like too big a commitment to make, head for the bar. Great cocktails and super-tasty bar snacks combined with a lively vibe make this a fun place to hang out and people watch.
This Starbucks-by-another-name gets points for its comfy seating and chill vibe. There's all the usual espresso drinks, as well as beer and wine, but the food menu is pretty ho-hum.
Talk about eye candy! This gorgeous dining room features various knickknacks and jim-cracks belonging to legendary artist Dale Chihuly. Gotta love the vintage accordians dangling from the ceiling. The food is decent, a mix of updated comfort food fare using Northwest-grown ingredients. But it's easy to get upstaged by all dazzling decor.
A neighborhood dive that's welcoming to regulars and newbies. Stiff drinks, good local micros on tap, a jukebox that rock. It all adds up to a fine place to hang out.
