My favorite casual spot in Seattle. This Portland gal feels right at home with the great food, cute servers, awesome cocktails, and quirky-chic decor. Yes, it's hip, but it's also welcoming.
With respect to traditional Spanish fare and add in a Northwest spin, this hidden Capitol Hill gem is quaint and warming, with food that goes with it. Order fish, they come whole.
This bright and lively room serves a modern take on the thali and is an exceptional value at happy hour when mini thalis, naanwiches and signature cocktails are just $6. Don't miss checking out the lovely herb garden in the courtyard.
Their cupcakes sometimes strike me as having almost an angel food cake texture (as opposed to a richer cake), so if that is the style you like, you will be happy with your tiny treat here.

Tasty and fresh Mexican fare at this sliver of a spot. Be sure to check out their Tequila Happy Hour which they serve up 5-7 pm every day.

About as true South as Seattle gets from all-day fried chicken (get it with waffles), house gravy and imported southern hot sauce (bolder than most). Come for breakfast, stay for…

This is the place to go when you want a cocktail mixed right. Friendly and knowledgeable, this is where other area bartenders tend to to go when they want to relax on the other…
Artusi Bar. Originally intended to be the first stop before diners settle into sister Spinasse next door, this high-concept watering hole has become a force. Clever craft cocktails and creative plates keep the room packed.… read more
Chico Madrid. Stop off for some tapas at this joint that is a welcomed anchor to a new condo in Cap Hill. Grab an espresso or one of the day's specials and linger a while. Inside tables are awfully inviting - but so are the few tables out front that let you soak up the sun while you nosh.… read more
