Stay close to home and eat at Nell’s. Vote one of the best restaurants in Seattle by Zagat readers.  “In a “hidden storefront” across from Green Lake, chef Philip Mihalski’s “oasis of serenity” wins accolades for “imaginative” American creations made from the “best local, seasonal ingredients” and paired with a “killer wine list”; the basic room looks a tad “tired” to some, but to those who appreciate “relaxed” yet “food-savvy” servers and a “quiet atmosphere”, it’s a “happy place,” says Zagat.

Reservations are currently available on Open Table.
