Good spot (good food) for family of 4 near Courtyard Seattle Lake Union....
We'll be arriving in Seattle from Detroit the day before our Alaskan cruise on August 11 and staying at the Courtyard Lake Union. Anyplace for dinner near there that would be appropriate with our two children (ages 6 and 8?) I want good local food, nice atmosphere but not too fancy since we'll have the kids with us. My daughter and I LOVE good Sushi so that, or a good local seafood establishment would be enjoyable.
Thanks in advance!
Most chowhounds would frown on it because it's a chain (even though it's a Pacific Northwest chain), but I have had really good meals at McCormick & Schmick's Harborside, which is right near your hotel. It's a great place for seafood, and lovely views of the Lake and skyline. http://www.mccormickandschmicks.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=content.display&pageid=96&id=37
You'll also be very close to Veil Restaurant, which is all the rage, but I have not been there, so I can't comment. Probably not great for kids. www.veilrestaurant.com
Coincidentally you will also be very close to "I Love Sushi" which is a fun place to dine, if not the best Sushi in town. www.ilovesushi.com
