Oh Broadway. It’s packed with hip and trendy boutiques, new condos, great restaurants and bars and a bunch of other spots you undoubtably have to check out. The unending allure of Broadway in Seattle’s trendy Capitol Hill has since been highlighted and, arguably, enhanced by the newly-finished light rail system. So if there was ever a time to go ahead and venture over to Broadway street, it’s now. It’s easily Seattle’s most iconic street, so instead of heading straight to Pike/ Pine, check out some of the below spots on Broadway first!
The dishes range from steaming bowls of buckwheat noodles to steamed buns filled with braised beef tendon, and Ma Po Doufu, a pork stew, and tofu, which means there is something for everyone to enjoy ☺ This is a Sichaun spot that Jerry Traunfeld opened right next door to Poppy. If you don’t know about Jerry, you must…
Jerry Traunfeld is known as chef at the amazing Herbfarm in Woodinville, where he has made an art of Indian-inspired dishes using Northwest ingredients. Stop by this sweet staffed, enthusiastically colored restaurant and try one of the daily Thalis (for less than $30, will get you a half-dozen constantly changing delicacies as well as the best naan, oven-baked flatbread, in the city)!
Try this spot if you are craving a great fish spot with fresh sushi. It is almost always full of locals who appreciate that it’s a little cheaper than Cap Hill’s other raw seafood joints. It’s also a favorite for locals since it has been posted up in the unique Broadway Alley building forever, it includes a little piece of Seattle history as well.
Dilettante Mocha Café
Try it for a sweet treat, this cafe features a newer version of the local chocolate producer’s flagship location (which was on Broadway from 1975-2008). It features the same delicious mochas and desserts as the older places, but has added a full menu as well as a sleek martini bar, which includes a Mexican chocolate drink, hazelnut espresso, and also a version infused with cayenne pepper.
Happy exploring and, as always, happy dating!
