Seattle: Crowd control

People here aren’t afraid to queue up for a $10 pulled-pork Cuban sandwich from Paseo, but lines here tend to be for food that hardly breaks the bank. Only Canlis has an actual dress code, and while you will wait in line for, say, a table at Maria Hines’s new Golden Beetle (pictured), it’s hard to think of a single place where the cachet comes from the simple fact that you got in.

Score: 7
