Westward: Moroccan Fish Stew

The Eastern Mediterranean fish house on the north shore of Lake Union, Westward is stunning from the patio in summer, with the Seattle skyline splayed out against the sunset. But winter dining has its compensations, like this shallow bowl of warming fish stew. Golden broth, fierce with currylike Moroccan ras el hanout, features shellfish and cauliflower and potatoes and bread and cod straight out of the wood oven—all of which melt into the broth, mellowing its clamor.

Here are more of my favorite dishes of 2013.
