Neighborhood Cuisine Specialty

The Fireside Restaurant @ The Inn at Port Ludlow

1 Heron Rd   Port Ludlow    Out-of-Town!

Chef Ratigan is always serving up the goodness of the Northwest sourcing a large amount of the daily ever-changing menu locally. Ask for the Farm Package or Chefs Menu for a real treat.

Agave Cocina & Cantina Redmond

17158 Redmond Wy   Redmond    Redmond

Hand-crafted food using fresh, natural ingredients (no preservatives, trans fats or lard) is always a draw. Knowing they use sustainably-harvested seafood and hormone-free chicken, beef, eggs, rice and beans is even better. Bright, warm colors, specialty cocktails with fresh juices and purees, and a scratch kitchen.

Cuisine: Mexican    Specializing in: Small plates, Sustainable, Natural, Brunch, Happy Hour, Outdoor Dining

Blu Sardinia

8862 161st Ave NE   Redmond    Redmond

Sardinians live long lives and it's at least partially due to the food. At Blu Sardinia, eat like a Sardinian: lots of greens, fresh vegetables, accented with protein. Drink deep red wine. Dine at a table, at the chef's counter or outide (seasonal). Large or private party? Enjoy the Blu Room together. Sardinian art, Italian furniture, a welcoming fireplace. Relax.

Cuisine: Italian, Sardinian    Specializing in: Pasta, Outdoor, Seafood

Seastar Restaurant & Raw Bar Bellevue

205 108th Ave NE   Bellevue    Bellevue

This lovely restaurant is an upscale addition to downtown Bellevue. Colors and curves draw you into the restaurant and lounge. Dining room menu and lounge food is innovative, high quality and, yes, good.

Basil's Kitchen Restaurant & Bar (Bellevue Hilton)

300 112th Avenue SE   Bellevue    Bellevue

Cuisine: Mediterranean    Specializing in: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Happy Hour

Café Veloce

12514 120th Ave NE   Kirkland    Kirkland

Sometimes themes work and sometimes they annoy. This one works--an ode to Italian motorcycling with classic Italian motorcycles and photos throughout. On arrival, check to see if the 10 percent discount for motorcyclists still applies. Italian dishes are the mainstay--pastas, pizza and some great specials. Check out their fun wine tastings.

Cuisine: Italian    Specializing in: Pasta, Pizza

Barking Frog

14580 NE 145th St   Woodinville    Woodinville

It may have high-profile neighbors like The Columbia Winery and Herb Farm Restaurant, but the Barking Frog has its own identity and is standing up to the Goliaths. The casual bistro atmosphere matches the menu. Seafood is especially good.

Cuisine: Northwest, American    Specializing in: Dessert, Banquet, Wine


Lincoln Square   Bellevue    Bellevue

Here's a Canadian chain offering American food in Bellevue. Maybe not incredibly new or creative, but you'll probably be happy with their menu and atmosphere, more so if you're on the younger end of things. Full bar.

Cuisine: American    Specializing in: Cocktails, Pizza, Pasta, Burgers, Sandwiches

Hoist Room @ Swiftwater Cellars

301 Rope Rider Dr   Cle Elum    Out-of-town!

At the Hoist House you will find the kind of fresh, seasonal food you genuinely like. Grass-fed tenderloin steak in a simple red wine demi-glace. Grilled Washington state wild salmon caught fresh. A Wild Mushroom bisque with the main ingredients foraged from the local forest. True Italian-style artisanal pizza with the flour and tomatoes imported from Italy. Homemade sorbet and ice cream.

Cuisine: Northwest, American    Specializing in: Wine
