Dressed-up dining

Seattle may be a casual town, but when locals want to fete a promotion or an engagement, they head to Canlis, the only restaurant in the city with an actual dress code. In 2008, the 63-year-old restaurant ditched the sauced fish fillets and chops that made it famous and recruited chef Jason Franey from Michelin-starred Eleven Madison Park in New York City. Now diners come for Franey’s more modernist dishes—smoked foie gras, pork loin with pine ash—though the restaurant’s 180° views of Lake Union and the Cascades remain, as does a tradition that requires men to don a dinner jacket in the dining room.
