Located in Pike Place Market is Jack’s Fish Spot. Don’t expect a fancy dining experience here, because they don’t even offer you a table. What you can do though is order from the small counter and pop a squat at one of their stools. Open since 1982, they are at the top of Seattle’s oyster game, and will teach you that it’s not about where you are eating and the décor, but the actual ingredient that should shine. You will have to stop yourself from slurping down a few dozen of their freshest oysters.
