His name might not be as familiar as say Chef Tom Douglas, but Brian Clevenger has added several great restaurants of his own to the Seattle food scene. Clevenger currently runs Vendemmia in Madrona, Raccolto in West Seattle and Contadino on Capitol Hill.

Recently Clevenger took a time out from his places to show Evening some of his favorite places to eat in the city.

Below is a list of where we went:
