Where to Eat in Seattle A curated list for my Amazon colleagues (or anyone else)

I created this list of restaurants for my Amazon colleagues who are visiting the Seattle campus. Most of these are within walking distance from the main Amazon campus area or a short Lyft ride away. Caveat: This is far from a comprehensive list of all the amazing restaurants in the Seattle area.

Near Day 1/Doppler:

Great State Burger: Seattle take on “classic American burger joint”
Picks: Cheeseburger, fries, milkshake (or beer)

Mamnoon Street: “Modern Middle Eastern street foods”
Picks: Lamb mana’eesh, harra frites

Skillet: “Modern diner food”
Picks: Burger, fried chicken sammy

Near Amazon Plaza at Terry Ave. N. between Republican St. and Harrison St.:

BaBar (South Lake Union location at the base of Rufus): “Upscale Vietnamese street food”
Picks: oxtail pho; mi vit tiem (duck noodles); Imperial rolls

Cuoco: Handmade pastas and other trattoria fare
Picks: any of the pastas, especially the rigatoni with sausage ragu
Side note: This is one of chef Tom Douglas’ restaurants (TDR). If you go to any TDR location, be sure to order the most famous coconut cream pie in Seattle.

Serious Pie & Biscuit (2 restaurants in one at Westlake Ave. N. and Harrison St.): Wood-fire-oven, thin-crust pizzas, and also fried chicken and biscuits
Picks: biscuit and fried chicken; smoked prosciutto pizza with soft egg
Side note: This is one of chef Tom Douglas’ restaurants (TDR). If you go to any TDR location, be sure to order the most famous coconut cream pie in Seattle.

Downtown:

Din Tai Fung (located on the 4th floor of Pacific Place mall at 6th and Pine): Taipei-based chain of restaurants known for its soup dumplings (xiao long bao)

Le Pichet: French bistro
Picks: French onion soup, salade verte (green salad with hazelnut-orange vinaigrette), roasted chicken, oeufs plat (baked ham and eggs), terrines

Sushi Kashiba (near Pike Place Market): high-end sushi
Pick: let the chef choose for you

Capitol Hill:

Lark: Northwest artisanal
Picks: Hamachi crudo, pork rillette; menu changes frequently, so pick what looks good

Mamnoon (original location): “Modern Middle-Eastern food”
Picks: any of the mezze, house-made breads, fattoush

Stateside: “global cuisine based on our travels”
Picks: menu changes frequently, so get a selection of dishes; the cumin spare ribs are a menu standard and are tasty

Taylor Shellfish (Melrose location): oyster bar
Picks: whatever local oysters are in season (personal favorites: shigoku and kumamoto oysters)

Tentenyu: Kyoto-style ramen
Pick: chashu ramen

Trove (4 places in one: noodle bar, Korean BBQ, cocktail bar, Parfait desserts): “modern Korean”

Starbucks Roastery & Tasting Room (for fun): the Willy Wonka-esque Starbucks cafe and roasting
Picks: one of the specialty coffees; or get an affogato (ice cream with an espresso pour over)
