Restaurant Athenian on Pike's Market, Seattle

This traditional fish restaurant and bar on Pike's Market is extremely popular. When we arrived for lunch, there stood about 40 people in front of us waiting for a table. Restaurant Athenian was founded in 1909 and is still an icon. The interior is very basic, dark wood but with nice views on the waterfront.

Being in Seattle, we decided to try different local specialties like smoked salmon, shrimps and King Crab. No fine dining or food presentation but pure product. We enjoyed the fish and seafood. The wine was also good and not overpriced like in many establishments in this city.

Dit traditioneel visrestaurant en bar op Pike's Market is enorm populair. Toen we er aankwamen voor de lunch stonden ongeveer 40 mensen op een tafel te wachten. Restaurant Athenian werd opgericht in 1909 en is nog altijd een icoon. Het interieur is heel simpel met donker hout maar mooie zichten op de Waterfront. 

Tijdens ons verblijf in Seattle besloten we lokale specialiteiten zoals gerookte zalm, garnalen en Koningskrab te eten. Geen verfijning op het bord maar puur product. We genoten wel van de vis en schaaldieren. De wijn was tevens goed en niet te duur in tegenstelling met vele andere etablissementen in deze stad.
