Local/organic dining in Seattle

What would be Seattle's answer to Chez Panisse? We are looking for local/organic/free range/vegetarian friendly in Seattle.

  1. You can't swing a stick without hitting a restaurant that uses local, seasonal produce and good meats, but Tilth is also organic, and even has a vegan menu.

    1. As noted, there are many.One that pops up for me is Art Of The Table.

      1. Bizarro. Locavore. Almost everything sourced within 300 miles of Seattle.

        1. portage bay does the local/organic thing too. those preferences are reflected in the prices but it's pretty tasty. more of a cafe/diner sort of set up but the fruit bar that comes with some of the breakfast selections is amazing.

            I wouldn't call Portage Bay Cafe anything like Chez Panisse but the food was good.

          2. Local 360 at 1st and Bell is rather new, but it will more than fulfill your first 3 requirements. Everything is sourced from within 360 miles (I think) and the menu really reflects a seasonal vibe. I think there's been some complaints about service at the bar, but I've never had any issues. The space was formerly the Flying Fish and is very warm, wooden and inviting.
