Contemporary American | Downtown, Seattle

We all loved doing restaurant week at another great Tom Douglas restaurant. We shared three different salads and they were so delicious. My personal favorite was the roasted cauliflower salad. Two of us had the cod and enjoyed it. It was surrounded by vegetables in a delicious broth. The other one had the strip steak but was disappointed in the meat. Our waitress was fantastic and we would all come back again. More

The ambiance was really nice, casual comfort mixed with approachable sophistication. I will absolutely recommend and hope to visit again for a nourishing and delightful dining experience. More

Peony KitchenPeony Kitchen

Contemporary Asian | Bellevue, Eastside

Peony Kitchen offers a fresh interpretation of Chinese cuisine in a vibrant and stylish atmosphere. In the 1930s, Shanghai was considered the Paris of the East and it was the epic center for any artistic avant-garde.

Peony’s concept is a nod to that era. The restaurant's name itself can be interpreted as the Chinese national flower Peony or the stage name of a female lounge diva. Peony is an eatery where diners can get a taste of old China and modern Chinese cuisine.More

Discover Seattle

The iconic city tucked inside the Pacific northwest coast does see a lot of rain, but when the sun shines on Seattle, it dazzles. Don’t miss the chance to dine at one of the many waterfront restaurants serving oysters and Pacific-caught seafood. Take a stroll downtown and wander in and out of bookshops and bakeries. Arguably the birthplace of American coffee culture, there’s hardly a better place to enjoy leisurely lattes accompanied by hours of computing and the occasional pen and paper sketch.
