Walking up to the Corson Building will have you feeling like you’ve left Seattle. We recommend visiting during warmer weather when the patio is set up for dining, and you can eat under the trees. The spot offers both a la carte and a fixed-price menu, showing off local and in-season foods.

Located in Pioneer Square, 84 Yesler is beautiful. The restaurant crafts local and global eats using only the best seasonal produce. Pick between a chef-selected five-course dinner or order a la carte: you won’t be disappointed with either.
