This restaurant is located near University Village and initially seems like the location would not be that great. However, it is just enough away from a busy street that it is actually a nice respite. We went there for a late lunch on a very...More

Across the street from the University Village in Seattle's University District , 50 North features farm fresh, local ingredients in unique, upscale American cuisine. Whether you're entertaining a pack of carnivores, vegetarians, vegans or gluten-freegans, there's something for everyone on the eclectic, seasonal menu at 50 North. Use your voucher on a gourmet pizza like the Chicken & Ratatouille, a thin crust topped with roasted chicken breast, red onions, fennel, apple, zucchini and pumpkin. Or go for one of their massive salads, like the vegan Warm Farro Salad, which combines red beets, apples and pears tossed in a sweet and savory pomegranate vinaigrette and served on a bed of Farro noodles. Burger snob? The 50 North Burger is a must, pairing local, grass-fed 'Thundering Hooves' beef with onion marmalade, grilled shiitake mushrooms and jack cheese on ciabatta bread, served with house-cut fries. We invite you to come on down for a great meal, the perfect martini, or a fantastic bottle of wine from our cellar. Experience our full-service espresso bar or enjoy lunch outside on the patio. Meet your family, friends or business colleagues at our new University Village gathering place for some great good food at 50 North!
