Ray’s does not have the best seafood in the city. The ambience inside isn’t too impressive either. And it’s certainly not cheap. So why do we love Ray’s? Because when the sun finally comes out, your eyes are all squinty, and you think, “I remember this hot bright thing,” you need to drag your pasty skin to Ray’s with a group of friends. Sit outside with all of the other happy people, split a bottle of wine, eat some decent crab cakes, and take in the view of Puget Sound right beyond the balcony. This is why you live in Seattle.
