Maneki Japanese Restaurant
Maneki Japanese Restaurant Review
The oldest Japanese restaurant in Seattle, Maneki is no longer a hidden gem that caters to in-the-know locals and chefs, but that doesn't mean the food is any less authentic. Though the James Beard American Classic winner serves good sushi, it's better known for the home-style Japanese dishes, which can be ordered as small plates, and accompanied with sake. Try the miso black cod collar or any of the delicious daily fish specials. Rice-paper lamps and screens add a little bit of old Japan to the otherwise uninspiring space. Parties of four to 10 can reserve a tatami room. Maneki is a mob scene on weekends—so don't even think about coming here without a reservation.
