DAZZLING PLACES.COM EDITOR'S RECOMMENDATIONS
We have a few personal restaurant suggestions to add to the many reviews at TripAdvisor.com.
Ivars Salmon House
401 Northlake Way
North Lake Union
One of my favorite restaurants is Ivars Salmon House. It features a beautiful cedar building that is a replica of a Northwest Indian Longhouse. The restaurant overlooks Lake Union and downtown Seattle. Ivars décor is northwest Native American art and it is worth seeing this mini-museum. The salmon offerings are always delicious and are a special treat to savor. The combination of excellent food, a beautiful building, artistic and historic décor, and a lovely view makes a visit to Ivars a memorable experience.

Five locations including:
- 115 Broadway on Capitol Hill

For fast food, it is hard to beat Dick’s. This Seattle institution offers excellent ice cream. This frozen treat is delicious and is guaranteed to wreck any diet. An additional treat at the Broadway location is the great opportunty to do people watching.

Whole Foods Market on Westlake Avenue
