good places near Seattle Sheraton (6th Avenue)?
It's my first time in Seattle and I'll be at the Sheraton on 6th Avenue. Any great places to grab lunch within short walking distance? I'm open to any type of food and cost isn't an issue (but not really expensive, please). I might be alone, so I'd like someplace a single diner can feel comfortable. Thanks!
you are right in the middle of downtown and can walk anywhere from Pike Place Market (6 blocks to the west) to parts of Capitol Hill. I would consider: Matt's in the Market; roaming the market and eating what strikes your fancy (humbow, sandwiches, pastries, fish and chips, oyster bar, etc.), Baguette Box (just over the freeway), Lola.
Thanks. I did end up walking down to the Pike Place Market. Those were nice, short blocks. Got a half a dozen donuts at the little stand right when you walk in and walked around shopping and munching. They were so good and hot from the fryer! After I shopped and visited the aquarium (very nice!) I picked up a burrito with pollo in salsa verde from the tiny "Vaca something" place and took it back to the hotel to eat. Great burrito! Spicy, too. I guess that place is the definition of a "hole in the wall" but they sure put out a nice burrito. During my shopping adventure I got some excellent spice mixes from World Spice. Can't wait to use them. Also, as a group, we had dinner at Union (I believe it was at Union and 1st?). The food was excellent and creative, but I felt it was a little bit overpriced. I was also a little put off that none of their fish was local, and they were quite proud of that! They like to do fish that has to travel to get there when they have such bounty right down the street. I dunno. Anyway, I had an appetizer (I think it was listed in the segundo section) of grilled sardines with fennel shavings and a fried squash blossom. Very nice. $13. My entree was grilled branzino (some kind of mediterranean sea bass, I hope it's not endangered, the waitress couldn't tell me) with some sort of cauliflower and olive salad under it. $27. The salad part was very salty but the fish was quite good. A melon sorbet with blueberries and a sprinkle of fresh thyme was a nice ending. $10?A very nice meal, but I'm glad I wasn't paying for it myself.
