Best overall meal in the last year

A recent experience brought to mind this question: Which Seattle restaurant provided you with the best overall meal within the last year? I’m not focusing here on one or two knockout dishes, but an experience that hit a total home run across the board, from appetizers through dessert, in a way that put it in a different league from other good meals you enjoyed. I’ve had the good fortune to have a handful of truly memorable meals over the past year but, until a few weeks ago, none of them was at a Seattle restaurant. Seattle restaurants provided me with many good meals and a few great dishes, but nothing that, overall, was an off-the-scale memorable experience. Then I ate at Spinasse, and was totally wowed by every dish I tasted – not just mine, but those of my three dining companions as well. So, for me, the answer to my question is clearly, unmistakably Spinasse. What’s your answer?
