Dinner near downtown Nordstrom:SEA

  • 8

I will be at Nordstrom in downtown Seattle at 5th and Pine in a couple of weeks with a friend and my 85 year old mother. I would appreciate suggestions of restaurants within a couple of blocks walking distance where we can get an early dinner. I would like to eat at one of Tom Douglas' restaurants, but they are a bit of a hike from 5th and Pine. Any cuisine would be fine. Thanks.

  1. Jane, It is a very short cab ride from Nordstroms to The Dahlia Lounge. I sincerely think your mother would love The Dahlia, it's a classic Seattle experience.

    1. That area of downtown is a culinary wasteland. The Dahlia Lounge and Lola are only about 3 blocks away. Palace Kitchen is a bit farther and less than $5 by cab

      1. Palace kitchen will be good for an early dinner (they tend to get busy and don't take reservations).

        Nordstrom has concierge service, btw -- you might check with them about arranging your cab.

        1. Do not give in and go to Dragonfish.

          1. Dragonfish has a great happy hour! I'd stay away during normal dinner hours though

            1. You're not terribly far from the Mayflower Hotel's excellent restaurant, Andaluca, approximately 3 blocks total.

              1. I've only been once (I think it was on Christmas when nothing else was open). But I was really pleasantly surprised with the new restaurant at the Westin called Coldwater Bar & Grill: http://www.toprestaurants.com/seattle... It's very close to Nordstrom's.

                1. Thank you for all the suggestions. We decided on Dahlia Lounge, and everyone could not have been more pleased with the meal, service, decor.
