GOING TO SEATTLE
Taking my boyfriend to Seattle for a night this Sat. He would love to have a yummy sushi dinner. Nothing to fancy, good atmosphere and a place that may have some non trad rolls. we will be staying near the space needle...Dexter ave..we will be driving however would like a place we could walk to or something nearby. Thank you!
It's a bit of a walk but you could cut through Seattle Center and head to Shiro's 2401 2nd Ave (Belltown). It can be a bit expensive though. Another option might be Shiki's 4 W. Roy St. (maybe 6 blocks from Dexter?) Great sushi! Though I've never cared for the ambiance (very bright lighting). Of course, very near to where you are staying is SushiLand USA but it's conveyor belt sushi...
At the top of Queen Anne hill is Ototo. Very good sushi, better atmosphere that Shiki or Shiro. Their non-sushi items are great as well - don't miss the tuna tataki salad and the udon is the best I've found in Seattle. The prep for Uni is as beautiful as it is tasty, fresh, sweet and briny.
