Seattle: Trace at the W Hotel
After a swanky new makeover, the W Seattle’s ground floor restaurant reopened in March as Trace. Honolulu native Steven Ariel, who previously worked in the kitchens of local favorites Canlis and Café Juanita, creates an expansive pan-Asian menu that ranges from nigiri sushi to espresso-crusted wagyu flatiron steak. The beverage program favors Pacific Northwest distilleries, Seattle microbrews and sakes from Japan. traceseattle.com
