The Capital Grille

1301 Fourth Ave   Seattle    Downtown

It's Seattle's first Capital Grille, although there are many across the US (primarily East Coast). Despite being a chain, they use local ingredients and "the freshest seafood Seattle has to offer." Dry aged steaks are their claim to fame. Atmosphere-wise, it's got a lot of dark wood and dim lighting, but is more of a jazzy, younger place than a rat pack place. There's a million niches in the world. Full bar, lots of wine choice.

Eastlake Bar & Grill

Le Pichet

1933 1st Ave   Seattle    Downtown

This is a very casual and friendly Parisian restaurant that will leave you feeling warm and fuzzy, not to mention full. You'll think you're in Paris without the air fare. I love the smell of café au lait in the morning.

Tavolàta - Belltown

2323 Second Avenue   Seattle    Belltown

This long, narrow space with tables along one side, booths on the other, an open kitchen, a full bar, and a mezzanine for private events is the spot for pasta. All made on site, with sauces to die for. Yet some of their best flavors are in their vegetable dishes.

Rustic euro-Italian fare grace a menu that changes three times a year. Intimate, candlelight dining and music four nights a week makes Serafina a first date best bet, not to mention the ensuing anniversaries. The courtyard in back is a must on a nice day. Reservations suggested. Full bar.
