Seattle: New ideas

Seattle: New ideas

Okay, we give Portland its cute Nordic food trucks, DIY butchering, and backyard goats, but Seattle beat it to the pop-up punch, with temporary restaurants now replacing underground supper clubs as the dining trend du jour. And Melrose Market is just another example of how Seattle dominates when it comes to artisanal food markets.

Score: 7
