Trendy Seattle Spot for Saturday Lunch

vega4933 Dec 15, 2008 06:49 PM

I have friends in town from LA on Saturday afternoon and want to bring them out for a great lunch. They are young-ish, professional trendy types who know and love good food. Any suggestions in the downtown area?

    Matt's in the Market, hands down. You should make a reservation.

      I second the suggestion for Matt's in the Market. Excellent food, great view of the market, fabulous location. All my out-of-town guests ask for repeat visits to Matt's when I take them.

      Steelhead Diner for really terrific comfort food.

        Cafe Campagne or Le Pichet if you are feeling French.

          Le Pichet is a good suggestion but Matt's in the Market would be my top choice

          Boka would be a good option.

            you might also consider Boat Street .. + the sculpture park might be extra good with snow (fingers crossed)
