Resto

Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood has more restaurants per square mile than just about any city in America, so it's easy to overlook even a great place to eat. That goes double for Resto, a tiny eatery tucked away in a mostly residential block of Thomas Street. It's well worth seeking it out,...

Capitol Cider

Washington is famous for its apples, which is why it's especially tasty to be in Seattle in autumn for the harvest. The abundance of apples also means that Washington is a real up-and-comer in the cider business. Capitol Cider is a warm, cozy bar that specializes in cider of all kinds, from a standard...

Taylor Shellfish

A seaside town like Seattle pulls a lot of delicious things from the water, from meaty salmon to sweet Dungeness crab. Real Northwest seafood geeks go for fresh, raw oysters, though. Taylor Shellfish raises their own oysters at their environmentally friendly farm in Shelton, Washington. A lot of...

Canlis

Largely regarded as one of Seattle's top restaurants, Canlis was doing farm-to-table long before it was cool. This intimate eatery has been in the Canlis family for three generations, and its founder, Peter Canlis, was the son of a chef who cooked for President Teddy Roosevelt. Always on the...

Armandino's Salumi

This cured meat shop in Seattle's Pioneer Square district comes care of the Batali family, the very same that gave us star chef Mario Batali. Salumi has, bar none, the best salami, pepperoni and other deli slices in the Pacific Northwest. They spice, cure, smoke and dry all their meats in-house, so...

Rain Shadow Meats

Find a good butcher shop and you'll never go back to supermarket meat again. Rain Shadow Meats at the hip Melrose Market in Seattle's urban core has some of the highest quality organic cuts in Seattle and it's all guaranteed extra-fresh. Rain Shadow practices “whole animal” butchery, so they have...

Stumptown Coffee Roasters

In Seattle, there's literally a cafe on every corner and a staggering number of them are awesome. The thing that makes Stumptown a cut above the rest is the fact that they roast their own beans right at the cafe. There are even seats down in the roasting area so curious patrons can watch how their perfect...

Theo Chocolate

The beautiful thing about the Theo Chocolate Company is the way it presents some of the highest quality bars and bonbons without ever seeming unapproachable or pretentious. While most chocolatiers buy ready-made bars to make their candy, Theo buys raw cocoa beans from fair trade farms around the...

Chukar Cherries

Another long-standing vendor at Pike Place, and with good reason. The cherry is one of Washington State's proudest agriculture products, especially sweet Bing and firm Rainier varieties. You'll definitely find plenty of fresh cherries at one of the market stands, especially in the summer, but...

Mick's peppourri

Mick's Peppourri is a jelly-lover's dream come true. Their family-owned stand at Pike Place Market always has a huge selection of jellies made from things like hot peppers and wine grapes. The Death Valley jelly is a real challenge, even for iron-tongued heat freaks, but the wine jellies are really...
