Blog Search: Where to Eat

Here at Pike Place Market, we value eating locally and sustainably – and it’s a value our vendors and restaurants share. Three of our restaurants, Matt’s in the Market,
Place Pigalle, and Pike Place Chowder, have joined a new sustainable seafood program called “Smart Catch,” which aims to help chefs work towards ensuring an abundant supply of seafood for generations to come.

As part of the Smart Catch program, the menus of participating restaurants are assessed and rated, with chefs agreeing to remove seafood that is overcaught or overfished as a commitment to serving sustainable seafood.

Dine al fresco at many Market cafes and restaurants this summer, such as the hidden gem of a deck at Maximilien Restaurant. The food may be Parisian, but the view is spectacularly Seattle!

Along First Avenue, let the hustle-bustle of the city pass you by while you delight in traditional and regional French foods under the tree canopy at Le Pichet. Just down a few doors is another shady patio at the casual bistro, Virginia Inn. 

And off of upper Post Alley, the latticed deck of The Pink Door lets you imagine you're under the sun-soaked grape groves of Italy.

Bon appétit!
