Seattle restaurant scene

This looks like just another beautiful view of Seattle. But there's much more to this picture gallery than that. What you don't see in this photo (but will see in the others) is the city's burgeoning restaurant scene, which is undergoing a delicious revolution, with many small eateries opening their doors. The emphasis is on honest, authentic cooking using the bounty of the Northwest.
