Best Italian (expensive)2012 Finalist See 2012’s Winner »
2429 2nd Ave., Seattle, WA 98121
Branzino comes off like a handsome older man, charming without trying too hard. The upscale Italian restaurant is always crowded in the evenings, drawing as many loudmouthed businessmen to the bar as it does cozy couples on dinner dates. Its menu is divided into five sections: antipasti, fish, meat, pasta, and contorni. Under fish, of course, is the branzino, a European sea bass with a crisp silver skin and tender white meat that nearly melts in your mouth. Other dishes—duck confit, risotto with braised oxtail—are rich in flavor but small in size. You may want to order a side of meatballs, too. (A cheaper option still would be to ask for more house bread.) But be sure to save room for dessert; Branzino makes theirs fresh daily, and the cannoli is to die for.
