From Our Editors

In the 74 years between the Paramount Theatre's opening night, when people used to line up to see “talkies” for 50 cents, and 2002, when it was voted Best Mainstage Theatre in a Seattle Weekly Reader's Poll, the palatial venue faded and decayed alongside its Roaring Twenties brethren throughout America. Luckily, former Microsoft Vice President Ida Cole saved it from the rubble heap in the mid-‘90s when she established the Seattle Landmark Association and vowed to render the Paramount "kissable" once again.

Over the course of seven months, the renovation crew expanded the size of the stage wings to accommodate more ambitious live productions. They also cleared decades of grime from the french baroque plaster reliefs, uncovering long-forgotten designs and causing only one long-dormant horror to snap open its eyes dramatically. They also replaced the gold leaf in the floral designs of the wall medallions, repainted all the surfaces in their original 16 colors, and scrubbed each of the 1.6 million crystal beads in the chandelier by hand with a toothbrush. The original Knabe Ampico player piano was returned to its spot on the four-tiered lobby's lush carpeting, and a 21st-century sound system now shares sonic space with the thundering, luminous sonority of the Paramount's fully restored Mighty Wurlitzer organ. Though the Paramount's calendar runs the gamut from rock concerts to standup comedy to Broadway musicals on the scale of Wicked, its decadent Beaux Arts trappings transport audiences to the days when reality was still black and white.

Seattle Restaurant Guide

Seattle restaurants do not get nearly enough credit for their quality, originality, and ability to appropriately represent regional cuisine. Being the closest big U.S. city to the rich fishing waters of Alaska, the seafood in Seattle is exceptional. Salmon, halibut, and king crab are just a few of the delicious species that make their way from the bountiful north Pacific into the kitchens of the city’s fine dining establishments. The shores of Washington yield some of the country’s finest oysters and Washington state’s productive farms provide high quality red and white meats, along with fresh organic produce.

Dining in Seattle is an incredibly rewarding culinary experience. From original and locally-sourced seafood spots like Matt’s on the Market in Downtown and the Walrus and Carpenter in Ballard to the Pacific Northwest-inspired Art of the Table in Wallingford, there are a plethora of praiseworthy fine dining establishments throughout town. The city also excels at cuisine from further afield, with the soul food from Kingfish on Capitol Hill and Ethiopian at Chef Cafe in the Central District. It’s also hard to beat some of the city’s comfort food, like sandwiches from Paseo in Fremont or pho from the multitude of Vietnamese food purveyors in the city.

Whether it’s choice Copper River salmon in an elegant waterfront restaurant or a hot dog with cream cheese and spicy peppers from a street vendor, eating in Seattle is an epicurean delight. The Seattle food scene is incredibly diverse and a lot of fun to explore. It is possible to locate almost any type of ethnic cuisine somewhere in town. It is also possible to find delicious eats from street-level all the way up to the best tablecloth and candlelight establishments. Seattle might not have the food reputation of New York or New Orleans, but that suits Seattleites just fine.
