Best Gourmet Mini-Mall

Melrose Market

This hot new Capitol Hill property was not curated by a gourmet developer, but it might as well have been. A high wooden ceiling, fat support beams, and good old bones at the Melrose Market give the former auto-repair shop a European feel, while the food purveyors are almost all locavore. Pick up a locally raised rabbit at Rain Shadow Meats, a pepper plant at Marigold and Mint, some gooey burrata (after trying a few other cheeses, of course) at Calf & Kid, and a bottle of wine at Bar Ferdinand. Or simply step inside Sitka & Spruce and hope for a table. With noted chef Matt Dillon at the helm, this restaurant is the highlight of the collective, offering fresh, creative dishes, a fine wine list, and a casual vibe. —Adriana Grant 1501-1535 Melrose St., melrosemarketseattle.com
