The best Restaurant in Washington State?
I love food, I was wondering the other day, what is the best restaurant in Washington State? So, I did what any self-respecting American would do, I went to Google. The problem is, no one will commit to the one, single best restaurant in Washington State. Oh, they will tell you about the 10 best, or the 20 best, even the 50 best, but the best, no one is interested in sticking their neck out and declaring “this is it, the best in Washington State.”
I continued to scan Google and I think this is as close as I am going to get.

Yes, I know, they are all in Seattle. There are great restaurants in other parts of Washington State. This really is all about opinion. Thanks to foodandwine.com for their opinion.
