This was a topic of discussion at a recent dinner out. If you could only eat at five Seattle restaurants for the rest of your life, which five would you choose? (Assume you are not going to win the lottery, so you need to take your budget into account.)
This might not be the same as your "Top 5" list, because the restaurants (IMO at least) need to cover a variety of situations, seasons, and price points, and you also want a mix of cuisine types. Sometimes you want fancy, sometimes you just want your neighborhood joint or a place with sentimental value.
My five, as of now:
La Carta de Oaxaca
Matt's in the Market
I want to add The Dish here, because I think a good breakfast counter is important. Still working on the list. Other runners-up were Le Pichet, Via Tribunali, The Corson Building, Pink Door, Canlis.
What about you?
