All You Can Eat

Trend-setting restaurants, Northwest cookbooks, local food news and the people who make them happen.

Shhhh! We’re trying to hear ourselves eat!

Today in the P.I. Leslie Kelly poses this question in her review round-up: “So, where can diners turn for a piece of quiet?” She explains she’s “searched for dining rooms that offer calm oases, venues more seductive than sedate,” singling out Canlis, Cascadia, Chez Shea, the Georgian and Portage. I think we can have fun expanding on that list, and seeing as so many of you are clamoring for less clamorous restaurants, it’s a timely subject.

I’ll start, and send extra lovage your way in advance if you can help me come up with some more-affordable restaurants to add to my list. Are you ready, kids? I can heeaarrr you at: Beato, Bis on Main, Cafe Juanita, Dulces Latin Bistro, Enotria, Eva, Gaspare, il Bistro, Le Gourmand, Madoka, Marjorie, Maximilien, May Restaurant & Lounge, Nell’s, Stumbling Goat Bistro , Szmania’s and Trellis.
