At this point, many of us are familiar with a handful of the cuisine types of Japan: sushi, ramen, and soba, for example. Kaiseki cuisine, however, is not often found in the U.S., and it’s what’s on offer at Wa’z: meticulously prepared and plated dishes that celebrate the seasons, served in an elegant, serene environment. If you can, snag a spot at the chef’s counter, and watch the magic unfold.

For a fine-dining experience before an evening of classical music, check out Muse, the official restaurant of the Seattle Symphony. Tucked away in Benaroya Hall, the menu leans European, but pulls from what’s in season at Pike Place Market—and with floor-to-ceiling windows, you’re guaranteed to enjoy the view.

The Metropolitan Grill is one of the finest spots in Seattle to enjoy a charred hunk of steak: the booths are velveted and deep; the tables are polished, dark woods; and the lighting is a flattering, golden glow. Order a wedge salad and creamed spinach to round out the meal, and you’re in for a fantastic evening.

There’s no shortage of great Italian restaurants in Seattle, but Spinasse consistently shines as one of the brightest. Come here for superlative dishes like hand-cut tajarin with butter and sage; lamb agnolotti en brodo; and cavatelli with morel ragu.

There’s no place quite like The Pink Door. This is part circus, part cabaret, part live-music venue, and part Italian restaurant, all found within Seattle’s historic Pike Place Market. With a concept this cool and a space this special, the food could easily play second fiddle—but it shines, every time. We especially love the Caesar salad, pappardelle bolognese, and the lasagna Pink Door.
