Queen City Grill Restaurant Review

: Decades before the neighborhood became today's hip and trendy Belltown, Queen City Grill established itself on the corner of First and Blanchard. Housed in a restored 1907 building, the menu features Pacific Northwest seafood and classics with a regional twist. Seafood fans make this a destination and enjoy the selection of smaller bites, including seasonal local oysters from various Pike Place Market vendors. Chef Brendan McGill is putting his own spin on the menu with dishes like salmon with whey-poached farro, rainbow chard and blackberry.
