The food at Art of the Table (1054 N. 39th St., 206/282-0942, www.artofthetable.net ) is a celebration of the earth, Seattle’s  seminal tribute to the farm-to-table movement.

For something a little less formal, stop by for Happy Mondays, an evening-long happy hour (5–10p.m.) with no reservations required.
