Matt Dillon's locally focused Sitka & Spruce is world-famous, and rightfully so. Preparations revolve around simple, clear, lovely flavors; sauces are sparing; nothing's overwrought; and the freshest produce, meat, and seafood meet again and again with the utmost care. Originally in a tiny spot in an Eastlake strip mall, Sitka & Spruce moved on up to bigger rustic-chic digs in the Melrose Market on Capitol Hill in 2010.
