Best Restaurants In Seattle

1. Zylberschtein’s

Seattle's New Jewish Deli, Zylberschtein's, Opens May 8 - Eater Seattle

Though Seattle hasn’t always been known for its bagel scene, Pinehurst’s Jewish deli and bakery represents a strong part of the renaissance. It has a weekly bagel club, which includes the option to add pantry items, a delightful chopped liver, and smoked meats galore. Zylberschtein’s also occasionally does full meal pop-ups, and its pints of matzoh ball soup are a balm on cold, rainy winter days. In-house delivery is available across much of the city.

2. The Shambles

Maple Leaf’s restaurant/butcher shop/bar hybrid is one of the more underrated gems in the city. During the pandemic, it has shifted heavily to retail with its high-quality meat selections, available in “butcher boxes” that are locally sourced. There are rabbits from Spokane, ducks from Grays Harbor County, and steaks a-plenty, but the prepared food also holds up well for takeout, and there are potent, well-crafted cocktails to go.

3. JuneBaby

Selections feature some favorites from the regular menu, including smoked carrots, pimento cheese, seafood gumbo, and the ever-popular fried chicken with mustard greens. It’s also worth taking a peek at the pantry to stock up on items like pickled okra and jerk marinade.
