Seattle Metropolitan Magazine’s Best in the City


July’s issue of Seattle Metropolitan Magazine names a couple of West Seattle restaurants as "Best in the City".     I am amazed that we have no shortage of fine restaurants in West Seattle…there’s really no reason to leave (except for work and I guess there is life beyond the West Seattle Bridge).

Seattle’s Best Wine Bar goes to Beato.   My husband and I have gone to Beato twice now.   We like to sit at the bar and chat with the bartender (seems like I should be calling him something else, wine server perhaps?).    Both times we have selected their wine flights along with some food of course!  You must try the maple smoked scallops.   SMM likes Beato because it has "perfect chemistry".    It’s a little on the pricey side and food portions are smaller…it is a treat and a nice "night out" when we happen to be kid-free for an evening.   Beato is located at 3247 California Avenue SW, Seattle.  206-932-1333.

Seattle’s Best Cooking Class is the Culinary Communion.   My neighbor "Cat Woman" purrs about her lessons with owners Gabriel Claycamp and Heidi Kenyon.   She’s promised to write a post for BDB one day…so maybe she’ll enlighten us on her experiences with this cooking school in our back yards.   206-284-8687.

Seattle’s Best Chicken Soup is Eat’s Market Cafe.    I’m dying to try their Reuben Sandwich.   This is another spot on my list of places of try whenever I’m in Westwood Village.   Eat’s Market Cafe is located at 2600 SW Barton St., Seattle.  206-933-1200

West Seattle’s Best Foam (Coffee) goes to Diva Espresso.   I have to admit, I have not been to Diva yet…I admire the building whenever I drive by and will make a point to stop in now.   SMM says they roast their coffee here in Seattle and that they have a "vintage bordello atmosphere".   Diva Espresso is located at 4480 Fauntleroy Ave SW, Seattle.  206-937-5225.

West Seattle’s Bes Suds (Beer) goes to Elliott Bay Brewery Pub.   BDB’s Steve’s Lunchbox recently reviewed Elliott Bay and this is also one of our family’s favorite lunch spots.   I didn’t realize (until reading the article) that the burgers are organic on homemade buns and you could wash it down with their award winning beer. Elliott Bay Brewery Pub is located at 4720 California Avenue SW, Seattle.  206-932-0532.
