Seattle/Eastside Culinary Scene!
Seattle is one of the most exciting food cities in U.S. and, in fact, in the whole world. In U.S. Seattle is rated just below New York, San Francisco Bay Area, and Los Angeles. Worldwide, it is only bettered by Paris, Barcelona, London, Rome, Sydney, Buenos Aires, and of course the top U.S. cities (as mentioned before) New york, San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles.
What makes Seattle one of the top 10 culinary cities in the world is the number of high quality and stellar restaurants in Capitol Hill, Ballard, Downtown and a few really good ones in the Eastside.
The fact is that some of the best restaurants in U.S. are in the West Coast simply because of access to amazing, fresh ingredients that include some of the best locally sourced produce, grass-fed meats and great selection of cheeses, and vegetarian-diet, free-range poultry. Seattle in particular is among the best-of-the-best in West Coast because it has access to amazing Northwest fish, crab, oysters and mussels, mostly all from our own back yard.
Hardly anyone can be found that does not regard Seattle as one of the best places for seafood, especially wild caught King Salmon, Yukon River Sockeye, or the seasonal Copper River Salmon. Every summer tourists pour into Seattle and one of their first thoughts is to try the amazing Seattle seafood.
