I'm looking for casual, local (non-touristy) places for dinner near the Ace Hotel (within walking distance).

      The cyclops, right under the Ace hotel (in Seattle) is a fun and local place that has been around for years. Check out Black Bottle on 1st and Vine, a few block north (to left as you exit hotel.) Delicious cocktails at Marjorie on 2nd & Battery. And the Ace hotel is walking distance to Pike Place market where you will find all sorts of good snacks from sit down places to sidewalk counters. Mee Sum pastry for a humbow is a personal favorite every time I'm in the market but there is also a great crepe cafe as well as good mexican at el puerco lloron on the stairclimb down from the market (between Western Avenue and the waterfront).

        Thanks. I'm recall I went to a Peruvian place at Pikes Place years ago...is it still there?

          I'm pretty sure it is. The one upstairs above Post Alley?

          Ace Hotel is walking distance to any of the Belltown or Pike Place restaurants mentioned on this board. You might do a search, as there are many posts on those areas. It's a great location.

            It's Bolivian, and it's still there. (It's called Copacabana.)

            The food wasn't that great last time I went, but it's a nice place to have a beer while watching the sun set on a nice spring day.

              That's right Bolivian - I remember I'd never seen a Bolivian restaurant before...Thanks.

                What is typical of Bolivian cuisine, and what does Copacabana offer? Is it a worthwhile venue for sampling this cuisine?
