This story begins in 1976, when Ray’s was the first restaurant in Seattle to purchase a wholesale fish buyers license. “This enabled us to buy fresh fish directly from the fishers, with no middlemen compromising selection. Over the years, Ray’s has developed enduring partnerships with the best fishing vessels in the Northwest, who value our business as much as we value their commitment to quality. The result: we get the absolute highest quality fish available, and so do you.”
