You are in Seattle for 48 hours. This is where you will eat.

Curator Ryan Snyder

Ryan was raised in a funeral home, and consequently takes everything too seriously. Especially food. He doesn’t shy away from smoking 25 pounds of pork belly, nor from undertaking an intense year of “study” sessions to become a certified sommelier. He writes about charcuterie on Meat Club, and hosts recipes with his venture Foodgeeks.

Seattle may be known for the Space Needle, the beauty of the Puget Sound, and the distant Mount Rainier. For me, the real landmarks are its food destinations. I have to start my food adventures at Pike Place Market, and let my belly lead me to the next stop. Salumi to the South? Le Pichet just to the north? Anchovies & Olives a little to the east? Dear Belly, where shall we venture next?

Brunch at Le Pichet

1933 1st Avenue, Seattle, WA

Sandwiches at Salumi

309 3rd Avenue South, Seattle, WA

Mario Batali's father created this house-cured charcuterie shop. It's open 4 days a week - Tuesday to Friday, 11am to 4pm - and at 11am there is a line that wraps around an entire street block. Trust me, it's worth the wait for a sopressata sandwich on a fresh ... more →

Casual Dinner at Anchovies & Olives

1550 15th Ave, Seattle, WA

If you're in the mood for seafood, you may not find a better place to enjoy it than at Anchovies & Olives. It's yet another restaurant by Seattle restaurateur Ethan Stowell, but this in particular is standout, as its concise and refined menu focuses not on salmon, ... more →

Mid-afternoon Noms at Oddfellows

It's mid-afternoon on rainy Seattle day and you need a reprieve from the Pacific Northwest consta-drizzle - go to Oddfellows. Its creaky wood floors, high ceilings and tall windows create a cozy atmosphere to listen to baristas steaming milk for your cappuccino ... more →

Brewskis at Naked City Taphouse

Uwajimaya International District

600 5th Avenue South, Seattle, WA

Uwajimaya is a large Asian grocery that helped revitalize an entire section of downtown Seattle. The store itself is fairly massive, and features everything from an overflowing produce section, to an immense selection of sauces, to rice cookers and other household ... more →

Get Gussied Up for French Dining at Campagne

86 Pine St, Seattle, WA

I'll admit it, I'm a sucker for great foie gras and Burgundian pinot noir, both of which have been know to skew my bias for a place. Campagne provides a quaint dining space near the Pike Place Market that is worthy of a special occasion meal. It serves up all ... more →
