For a real treat in Seattle, indulge in some of the Pacific Northwest's finest cuisine at the Dahlia Lounge, an eclectic and innovative restaurant that specializes in seafood dishes and earthy flavors. Try to include a meal (lunch or dinner) at the Dahlia Lounge in your travel budget.
Inside is warm and cozy, a perfect retreat from the rainy Seattle weather. The papery lights, tile mosaics, and Asian-inspired design complimented by local art, create a romantic and chic atmosphere.
The menu by Iron Chef winner Tom Douglas is diverse, familiar and creative all at once. It is updated regularly, often depending on season as most of the ingredients are sourced locally.
Start with the Tuscan grilled bread salad or the seafood sampler. The appetizers alone might be enough of a taste, especially when coupled with one the fantastic desserts.
Finish your meal with the infamous freshly-fried, made-to-order doughnuts. The paper sack they’re delivered in may seem unassuming but they are delicious all the same and you can choose your own heavenly toppings. Perfect to share.
Service is professional, attentive, engaging. The wine list is terrific. Do look at the menu and consider your budget beforehand if you need to. It is accordingly expensive given the quality of the food.
