Diva at the Met
This elegant oasis at the Metropolitan Hotel provides a Pacific Northwest take on international cuisine. Chef Hamid Salimian applies his talents to 'explosively flavorful' fish and poultry dishes alongside ultra-fresh seasonal tasting menus and decadent desserts. Sophisticated but casual, Diva's tasteful décor includes a Waldorf-style open kitchen allowing for tantalizing glimpses of each dish in progress. The restaurant's celebrated Chef's table and 300-label cellar further distinguish Diva as a top-tier restaurant. The lobster gnocchi wins particularly high marks.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
