I admit, I am a big Tom Douglas fan. Tom owns the Dahlia Lounge, Etta's Seafood Restaurant and The Palace Kitchen. Three distinctively different restaurants all within walking distance of Pike's market and Belltown.
Overall, my favorite is The Palace Kitchen. Prices are affordable and the food is both innovative and excellent..and VERY consistent.
The old Dahlia Lounge moved because of typical greedy landlord problems. The new location, 2001 Fourth Avenue, is just a block or so north.
The Dahlia is a very romantic setting with a great staff, excellent food and a menu that illustrates Douglases' love of food.
Choose any of these three and you can't go wrong. There are many new "fashionable" Belltown restaurants and I have been disappointed in most. Never with any of these three. Enjoy!
