Pike Place Market: Maximilien
The Details: This locals' favorite has a tucked-away deck with a stunning view of Elliott Bay and a long list of bistro classics done with a lot of style.
Must Order: Start with a French 75, the champagne cocktail that gets a cognac kick. Then dive into a bowl of the outstanding mussels and frites.
Insider Tip: Reservations are a must for lunch and dinner. But the dining area clears out between meals, which is our preferred time to strike with a walk-in.
