Lunch w/ the boss' wife in Seattle -- HELP!
I am on the "partner track" at my small consulting firm and have invited one partner (female) and our other partner's wife to join me for a "girl's lunch" in December. They are both fun women and this lunch is supposed to be about us getting to know one another better as I continue to progress within the firm. I want to impress them with a well-planned lunch with fabulous food and good service -- but don't want it to be stuffy, over rated, or over priced. Where can three women have a long, leisurely, yet business appropriate lunch in Seattle that is fun, tasty, and makes me look like a rock star??? It will be close to the holidays (December 23rd) so I need to get a reservation made soon. Help!
you might inquire with Crush about scheduling a private lunch there
Barolo could also work (reserve a booth)
Union Square Grill, restaurant Zoe, Dahlia. mention that it's important when you make the reservations. Good luck!
I would go for Dahlia Lounge--IMO it's rock solid reliable but also fun and relaxed. I'd ask for one of the booths on the far end of the restaurant (the north side).
I would go to Matt's in the Market. The atmosphere is hip enough without being precious, the food is fabulous (esp. if you like seafood), and it is not overpriced. I eat lunch there regularly and I always notice the preponderance of women -- I think the soups, salads, fish they serve and the reasonably-sized portions keep women who work downtown coming back.
I have had good luck with a couple of places matching your requirements. The first one is the Brasserie Margaux in the Warwick Hotel and is located on 4th & lenora. They not only have a good selection of lunch items, the also offer a Prix Fixe Lunch menu during the week. Nice atmosphere, great service and have never had a bad meal there in over six years. Another choice is the Flying Fish on First and Bell. I love the food and the serivce has always been great. Good luck!
