seattle eateries

{Please note: This page was current as of July 2012. I have since moved to Denver and am sadly losing touch with the Seattle food scene. I’m sure many of these restaurants are still fantastic, and there are undoubtedly many exciting new ones. I recommend checking out Eater for the latest.}
