The March Hit List, Lunch Edition: Old Salt, Marmite, Remedium Island Grill, and More


As cheery crocuses start to pop, signaling hints of spring, the cumulative mood of Seattle feels somehow lighter. Maybe it’s the uptick of needles in arms that gives hope of some return to normalcy? Or perhaps, it’s been the handful of recent sunny days that give a sense that winter won’t last forever. Whatever it is, it’s a delight to see people out and about, filling patio spaces, dining indoors, and saddled with takeout containers – following COVID safety protocols, of course — especially for lunch.

Smoked fish and bagels at Old Salt, an entire Filipino Kamayan feast from Remedium Island Grill, or a bowl of seafood chowder and a view of Snoqualmie Falls are just a few great reasons to leave that computer screen for an hour or two. Point is: Daytime dining doesn’t have to be boring. Let our March Hit List guide you to some of the best lunch options in and around Seattle.
