Best Grocery Store

Pete's

If Pete's was merely a grocery store, with beer the only alcohol offered, it would still be special. For more than 40 years, it's been a fixture on the east shore of Lake Union, catering to the needs of a lively neighborhood that spills downhill from I-5 west to the lake's banks and the houseboat colony beyond. Pete's features a well-stocked, diverse selection of foodstuffs and a top-notch deli, but it's also one of the city's top destinations for wine lovers. To wit, Pete's devotes more than one-third of its shelf space to wine, offering a staggering selection that runs the gamut from great value (dozens of under-$20 bottles rated 90 or above by sources such as Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast, and Robert Parker's Wine Advocate) all the way to the finest grapes and vintages from across the globe, with corresponding prices.
