Default thee best restaurant in seattle, according to the culinazi is

paseo, fremont avenue

if you've never been there, you are missing out on the best food in seattle. it's small, cramped, ALAWAYS packed but is the most blissful meal to be had in the city. it's super cheap, the guys there are really nice and i've NEVER EVER eaten somewhere more consistent. i honestly eat there at least once a week, so if you go i'm sure you'll see me there.

a close second is tamarind tree in the international district which serves the best vietnamese food in the city.

There are so many different cuisines available in Seattle but I have a few favorites. There is a little gyro place on Broadway called Ali Baba; hands down the best gyro I've had and the people there are super nice. Their saffron rice is to die for. The best steak I've ever had (besides an Argentinian place in Australia) can be found at Jak's Grill in the U-District. For sushi I like Shiro's in Belltown. Pizza I'd give to Tutta Bella.

I haven't had any outstanding Italian here, does anyone have a recommendation?

I don't know if it is too mainstream being a franchise and all but I love the Italian food at Buca di Beppos. Grazie in Bothell is good too.

Jak's is AMAZING and cheap in terms of steakhouses, the owners are super cool too.

for pizza, the best napoli style is fondi by u-village.

italian? not il fornaio, please don't go there. across the street from sitka and spruce (one of my fav fine dining restaurants in town) is a place called serafina, they have the best italian in town.

I'm a big fan of Blu Water Bistro on Lake union, or on Greenlake. There are a couple others also.

Just last week I went to pasta fresco. Really good food, the chef asks you what you dont like and brings you 6-7 different things during the meal. More than enough food and everything was delicious.

as i determined from past threads soliciting restaurant recommendations you all have widely varied budgets and tastes. and levels of taste, for that matter.

my snooty picks:

buddha ruksa (thai, west seattle)
carmelita (vegetarian, greenlake)
tilth (local/organic, wallingford)
vios (local/organic, capitol hill/madrona-ish)
volterra (ditto + great brunch, ballard)

i've been maintaining a list of restaurants btw: http://www.xanga.com/toshiclark/5327...staurants.html

One favorite of mine is Salvatore's on Roosevelt near Greenlake. Brought tears to the eyes of my east coast italian jewish friends. Another exceptional, and surprising place is Swingside Cafe on Fremont Ave. You'd never guess..

Not so sure about Serafina, I've heard mixed things, although to be honest, I've never eaten there. Actually, I live 2 blocks south of there.

Via Tribunale has excellent, authentic Italian Pizza.

Best breakfast place is The Dish in Ballard on Leary way, by the Fred Meyer.

beth's is good for breakfast, el greco has the best brunch though. i've walked by via tribunale a ton of times, but never been in there i fight with the idea of paying that much for pizza.

Honestly, I LOVED The Cliff House when Ben and I took his mom there for her b-day. The atmosphere was great, the view was BEAUTIFUL and the food was SO good! I would go back there anyday. They were a little pricy, but not too bad

Yes - the Wagyu Steak (Kobe Beef style - aka, Kobe Beef that isn't actually from Kobe Japan). Hands down the best steak I've ever had. Easily worth the $70 price tag, and that's coming from someone who is generally CHEAP.
