Another lunch rec in Seattle

rumgum Jul 27, 2008 10:56 PM

I know there are a ton of posts already. My best friend from Junior High is visiting. We have a Friday lunch set aside to catch up next month. I also have not seen her in almost 10 years. She's always been a picky eater. However it sounds like her horizon may have expanded. She's fond of Japanese food, may include fusion type entrees. But she's also excited to try something distinctly Seattle, like the local seafood. I don't eat out much particularly in Seattle, since I live up north in Everett. Please advise! I'd love to treat her to a great CH experience, even for just a short couple of hours.

    Matt's or Cafe Campagne. You can't go wrong. Those are my top two choices when I pick up out-of-towners at the airport. I head straight to the market from the airport!

      Thanks for the reply. Matt's is a great suggestion. I haven't been there in awhile. I'm still looking for a great seafood place with Asian flair though. Cafe Campagne may be too fancy for her. And she hates cheese.

        We've always enjoyed Flying Fish in Belltown. Tasty seafood selections done with an Asian influence.

          One option for Asian/fusion (i.e. nonauthentic)/lunch is Wild Ginger. Not necessarily the most authentic Asian food but many options and pleasant relaxing atmosphere for 2 people to catch up. Mussels in curry are good. Another comfortable lunch option is Taste (in the Seattle Art Museum)-- crab Louis salad is good.
