Seafood In Seattle
I will be in town for a few days and am looking for the must hit places for good seafood. looking for recommendations for a lunch and a dinner. i lived up in the area a few years back so not looking for the usual tourist places( Ivars etc). obviously hitting salumi for a lunch but there is still one lunch slot to fill.
Matt's in the Market (for the catfish sandwich), Jack's Fish Spot (in the market), Pacific Inn Pub (downwtown Fremont for the best fish and chips), Paseo's (Fremont ave.- for the prawn or sea scallop sandwich!!) & Shiro's(fresh sushi- downtown)
I adore the Flying Fish in Belltown (flyingfishrestaurant.com). It has great atmosphere and a diverse menu with plenty of seafood options. I love their Thai crab cakes and steamed clams for appetizers. The king salmon salad is also excellent. I've not had the cod fish & chips, but they look really good. One really cool thing about Flying Fish is that you can order their "platters" if you have a party of 3-4 or more. This is a great way to taste a variety of different seafood.
Flying Fish is definitely worth a visit, maybe a bit trendy for seafood purists.
For the most consistent treatment of the NW standards, and a few absolutely classic originals, it is still tough to beat Ray's Boathouse. The Kasu Blackcod is one of those preparations that is simply art in your mouth.
