In 1950 Peter Canlis set out to build “the world’s most beautiful restaurant.”
So says the “Architecture” page on the Canlis website.
Mr. Canlis may well have succeeded. (I mean, what restaurant website has an Architecture page?)
But it’s not just the physical beauty of the structure itself that makes Canlis a beautiful restaurant — and one that is worth investigating here at Primility.
It’s the people inside, and what they stand for, that make Canlis a remarkable restaurant.
Watch this video. It’s short. You’ll see.

As Mark Canlis says:
This is a business about people. And if it’s a business about people, that means it’s a business about relationships. If it’s a business about relationships, that means it’s a business about trust. And around that table, that’s where the trust is coming from.
Canlis is a restaurant that exemplifies primility. You can see the pride at first glance by just looking at the restaurant from the outside, and the humility becomes becomes clear when you see what makes it tick on the inside.
To learn more, listen to this interview that the guys at Fizzle did with Mark Canlis.
And then add Canlis to your list for the next time you’re in Seattle. It’s on mine.
