Think New Jersey diner meets Seattle seafood flair—with an amazing Washington wine menu, to boot. You can depend on finding expertly prepared fresh fish, and salmon might come from Bristol Bay in Alaska or from Washington's Quinault River, depending on season, but there's much more on the menu, and the fried chicken can't be beat. Other fine favorites include "jumbo lump" crab cakes and a decadent Theo Chocolate pecan pie. Beware of blaring music, odd lighting, touristy
crowds, and steep prices, but that goes with the location, smack in the heart of Pike Place Market.
