You’ve got plenty of time to get that summer bod so you might as well enjoy some of the tastiest meals around town.

Off The Rez Cafe

This well-loved food truck, considered Seattle’s first Native American food truck, has finally opened a permanent outpost inside the New Burke Museum. Owners Mark McConnell and Cecilia Rikard make their bread by hand, using the traditions from McConnell’s mother, who grew up on the Blackfeet Reservation in Browning, Montana.

Hours: Monday to Friday, 8AM-6PM and Saturday/Sunday, 10AM-5PM
Where: Burke Museum, 4300 15th Ave NE

Pho Bac Sup Shop

This is an oldie but a goodie with a new twist. Pho Bac’s prime corner location in Chinatown/Little Saigon has a super unique building on it- a boat! The boat is a sneaky restaurant and has been closed for renovations but it’s now back up and sailing! You can now enjoy your favorite pho and Vietnamese cuisine in the upgraded interior of the Pho Bac boat.

Hours: Daily, 10AM-10PM
Where: 1314 S Jackson Street

paju seattle

This new restaurant located on lower Queen Anne serves up some modern Korean cuisine. You can expect a variety of wonderfully prepared, delicious, shareable plates. That does mean the lines are now fairly long at prime dinner times. Trust us, it’s worth the wait! Paju doesn’t have a listed menu online so you’ll have to try it in person and be surprised, but we’re sure it’ll be a good surprise.

Hours: Daily, 5PM-9:30PM
Where: 11 Mercer Street

Eight Row

Seattle isn’t exactly a destination for healthy food despite being surrounded by farms, accessible farmer’s markets and nature. Well, coming from us the Kings and Queens of Taco Bell. That’s why we’re excited about Eight Row, a new farm-to-table restaurant from up-and-coming chef David Nichols. The Green Lake restaurant showcases the ingredients, influences, and aesthetics from the Wenatchee, WA, orchards that Nichols’s family owns and operates. The menu continually rotates, so there’s zero chance of boredom on your plate.

Hours: Tuesday to Friday, 4PM-10PM, Saturday/Sunday, 10AM-10PM, Closed Monday
Where: 7102 Woodlawn Ave NE

This Capitol Hill restaurant has taken over the long vacant, very iconic Broadway Grill space. We’re wishing them luck in this space, and wishing our metabolism luck with everything we’re gonna eat. Olmstead is the newest restaurant from Gregg Holcomb and chef Jesse Elliott of Capitol Hill’s Southern-inspired craft cocktail spot Witness.

Hours: Monday to Friday, 10AM-Close and Saturday/Sunday, 9AM-Close
Where: 314 Broadway East

We hope these new restaurants in Seattle give you a little kick in the booty to get out of the house this winter season. But if not, that’s why there’s Uber Eats, right?
