Self-sufficient neighborhood enclaves knit together to form Seattle. Each has a different personality, and with it, great restaurants that reflect that personality.
In hip, funky Fremont, my favorite eatery is Agrodolce. The sophisticated Sicilian fare is served in a casual atmosphere. The restaurnat's big windows look out onto a tree-lined, pedestrian-friendly street where you can people-watch as you slurp down handmade pastas.
Capitol Hill is home to lots of plaid-clad hipsters; flannel is also the waiter dress code at Skillet Diner. Scarf down some of Seattle's best hamburgers washed down with beer from Seattle microbreweries.
And in historic Ballard, surrounded by fishing boats and marine supply shops, slurp down a dozen raw at the Walrus and the Carpenter. The oyster bar has drawn national attention for its selection of Washington bivalves and tasty, rustic cuisine.
