Palisade

$$$ Seafood

A throwback to the Golden Age of the Pupu Platter, where every other table has someone proposing marriage or planning their Ride the Ducks tour or playing bridge. And why wouldn’t this be a favorite of lovers and tourists and establishmentarians—it boasts one of Seattle’s great views, the sweep of Elliott Bay and Puget Sound toward the Olympics. Inside, the spot is aging but still has that whiff of grandeur only an indoor pond can provide. Food is spendy surf and turf, a crabcakes and fried-calamari kind of place, which tends toward the bland and uninspired but is carefully crafted to delight the greatest number of Kansans.
