1. Ray’s Boathouse
Just in time for sunset views over Puget Sound, one of Seattle’s most familiar restaurants reopened its doors — and deck. Seafood at Ray’s remains as fresh as it gets, noted by the working fishing boats returning to Salmon Bay with their catch. Start with the Del Pacifico day-boat prawn cocktail, and a glass of sparkling Oregon wine, then longtime favorite Pacific Northwest sablefish in sake kasu. All while lingering over a cocktail, and looking out at the snow-capped peaks of the Olympic Mountains, a perfect spring setting.
