Seattle is surrounded by bountiful farmland and waterways teaming with sea life. As a city of foodies that are also largely conscientious eaters, it’s no wonder there’s an abundance of locally and seasonally focused restaurants.

Terra Plata

Terra Plata sources some of its produce and herbs from its rooftop garden, where you can dine in summer. Regardless of where you sit, you’ll be treated to an excellent meal that sources heavily from local farms and other regional purveyors.


Porkchop & Co.

Porkchop & Co. has a heavy reliance on local farms for a menu of comfort food, cooked with skill and a touch of refinement.

The Whale Wins

The Whale Wins is one of chef Renee Erickson’s Seattle restaurants and it’s won her much national acclaim. A small menu is fine-tuned to highlight the best of what’s available now, with a nod toward rusticity. Some items come from Erickson’s own farm on nearby Whidbey Island.
