Seattle locavores are an adventurous breed

SEATTLE — We have just finished a startlingly good dinner at Spinasse, a meal that felt as if we’d time-traveled to a rustic farmhouse in Piedmont. With its open kitchen, worn wood tables and floors, and soft, chandelier lighting, this restaurant shines in a city that was the forerunner in the farm-to-table movement.

Freshly dug carrots, rabbit meatballs, and local quail with foraged chanterelles are on the menu, but this innovative fare isn’t unusual in Seattle, which seems to be a breeding ground for James Beard winners. Artisan producers, organic farms, wineries, and world-class seafood are part of the mix, and the result is an adventurous, ever-changing culinary scene.
