For the life of me I can't remember the name of this little 'restaurant' right on the main floor of Pike Place Market that has a wonderful salmon sandwhich with grilled onions.....can you help?

    Actually, doesn't sound anything like the Market Grill, since that's upstairs on the opposite side of the street. Main floor? Good bet it's Lowell's. Been there forever. Three floors, sounds like the kind of food they have there. Decent spot.

      No, Market Grill is in the main arcade.

        Clarification: East, across the "street," (Pike Place), fronting on First Avenue, is the Pike Place Bar and Grill. Back West across Pike Place is the Market Grill. They could not be more different. The "counter with 3 sides" is a great description for the Market Grill, and the little quotes around 'restaurant' make me think Christy hit it. The sandwiches are fairly plain, but grilled well, tasty, and served barely out of the flow of pedestrian traffic. Very small menu, on a chalkboard or smallish sign, I believe.
        Yes, Lowell's is very near, but probably has a small telephone book for a menu. Close by Lowell's (which I, a 56 year native who grew up in the market have never visited), is The Athenian. Culture on the half-shell. Have a hang-town fry with the old-timers.

        Sounds like Market Grill (more of a counter with 3 sides than a restaurant).
