NYC c'hounder w/ 48 hrs in Seattle

So i'm headed to Seattle for the first time and only have 48 hours to eat the best the city has to offer. Here's the breakdown: i have 2 breakfasts; 2 lunches; and MAYBE 1 dinner. Not so great, but it'll have to do. I'm looking for a food experience that i can't find in manhattan, so pacific northwest cuisine (including good coffee shops) at it's best. If anyone can at least suggest two solid lunch spots (or dinner spots that offer lunch) i would greatly appreciate it!

  1. Where will you be at lunch and dinner times?

    1. I assume you'll be in the downtown area.

      Go to Pho Bac on 7th Ave S (just south of S. Jackson St) and have a bowl of pho tai chin for lunch (or breakfast.)

      Do get coffee at Victrola, Vivace, or Zeitgeist, all of which have locations in downtown or adjacent neighborhoods (capitol hill, pioneer square).

      Get breakfast walking through the market one morning.

      I'll let someone else chime in on dinner.

      1. Etta's for lunch - just north of the market. Don't miss the wild Alaska King salmon, starting with the fresh Dungeness crab salad in a lime dressing.

        Dinner - Matt's in the Market

          1. Good suggestions here already (Matt's, the coffee places); my understanding is that it's hard to find good Vietnamese in NYC, so I'd head to Green Leaf in the International District (or Tamarind Tree, my second choice) for one of the lunches.

            I also agree about walking through the Market and picking up breakfast.
