Your 4 favorite WS restaurants

If you were to pick ’em, would they be the same 4 as in this Times roundup (scroll down)?

I think West 5 belongs in that list, at the very least. But maybe that’s only because I’ve never been to Ovio. Peered at the menu a few times — will have to try it sometime — but it sounds a little too fused for me to bring West Seattle Blogger Spouse, who is a meat-n-potatoes type of person (and no, the meat can’t be “adolescent hamster raised on pinenut feed” nor can the potatoes be “spring purple fingerling speckled sardine-infused russets”).

    Sure, the Met Market is great… but couldn’t they come up with a fourth actual restaurant?

    Lately I’ve been loving Lee’s (especially the Seven Flavor Beef) and Buddha Ruksa (for just about anything).

    And if you’re not into fusiony/fancy, try the Junction Burger at Easy Street and the blackened salmon sandwich at Rocksport.

    West Seattle has so many good restaurants now, it is hard to narrow down to just 4. My selections:
    1) Ovio
    2) West 5
    3) Matador
    4) Celtic Swell

    Hey, I’ve read that a Whole Foods will be opening in at Alaska and 30th. Anyone know when?

    Hey – Ovio is great for meat-and-potatoes folk who want a jazzed up dinner from time to time. On the downside, it’s a bit expensive. I’d start with their sibling restaurant, O2 Bistro. Also have been to Blackbird Bistro a couple times in the past few weeks, and it’s quite good, too. I have to agree on Buddha Ruksa–best Thai restaurant in Seattle, as far as I’m concerned.

    Would never go back to Eats after what I’d call a service fiasco. Do like Ovio, though. My faves:

    La Rustica
    West 5

    Matador and Ovio follow closely.

Sorry, comment time is over.
