Why is Seattle a Great Food City?
Seattle is dominated by enormously popular and sophisticated multi-dimensional restaurants that offer great quality seafood and amazing views of Puget Sound as well as unpretentious high-quality restaurants that have taken the mom-and-pop cuisine and turned it into artististic form of culinary expression. Between both types, there is lots of choice, variety, and great food to be found in Seattle.
So why is Seattle a great food city?
What makes Seattle a great food city is: 1) Access to great local produce (farmers market) that give the restaurants ingredients that are fresh and in some cases organic and ever so tasty, 2) Amazing artisan stores offering bread, chocolate, coffee/tea, and desserts - great supplies that go directly to the restaurants, 3) Access to fresh Northwest fish, 4) Exciting selection of wines and sophisticated beverages and cocktails, AND finally, 5) Both young chefs with new ideas and creativity as well as maverick chefs that focus on signature cuisines.
Seattle offers all of the above and hence why it is regarded by many as one of the best and most exciting cities that offer amazing culinary choices, wonderful dining experience, and a delightful restaurant scene - matched by very few others.
