Casual and delicious in Seattle?
Jamie, I suggest the Palace Kitchen. Very casual, festive with earthy food. (Most of Seattle is not that upscale in dress anyway.) Second suggestion would be 94 Stewart Street in Pike's Market. (At 94 Stewart.) If you go, don't miss the Crab/Avacado appetizer. Third suggestion would be the upstairs bar at Maximillen's at the Market. The mussels are the best. (And I've had the mussels at Fiorello's in New York.)
