Trace at W Seattle creates food with local freshness (Seattle, Washington)


SMALL BITE: You can count on fresh food every time you sit down at Trace in Seattle’s W Hotel.  The restaurant was aptly named  because ingredients can be traced back to local farms, cheesemakers, wineries and fishermen. Trace is becoming quite popular with the local Happy Hour crowd, thanks to its cool, urban vibe, contemporary lounge and of course, the inventive and delicious food.

SIGNATURE DISHES: Trace  is known for its fresh seafood and Asian-inspired food made with the freshest local ingredients.  Signature dishes include the Trace Sushi Roll with crab and torched spicy tuna; and  Edamame with Chili Garlic Sauce. Dinner specialties include Misoyaki Alaskan Halibut with Hawaiian heart of palm, bok choy, orange sauce; and Double R Ranch Grilled Rib Steak with onion rings, mushroom sauce.

THE DISH FROM DINERS:  “A true hotel restaurant gem.  I do really enjoy all of the W Hotel restaurants, but Trace does stand out among its peers.  The sushi and pork sliders are wonderful!  However, I must say that the saimin bowl is truly a unique dish that you do not find outside of Hawaii. Almost worthy of what I will now refer to as the Momofuku status in honor of David Chang!  BTW, the sushi is truly awesome.”

ABOUT W SEATTLEHip, cool, contemporary and urban vibe-a-licious are words being used to describe this boutique hotel in downtown Seattle, smack-dab in the middle of the financial, retail and entertainment districts. Their rooms offer up some of the best views of the city’s skyline. Park your car with the valet and forget about it because all the best Seattle attractions are within easy walking distance — Pike Place Market, Seattle Center, Seattle Waterfront, and Benaroya Symphony Hall. And the Space Needle is a VERY SHORT ride away by the Sky Train, where you can hop aboard just blocks from W Seattle.
