Quick dinner before winefest?
well I gotta say it's tough in that area but:
Lion's Pub - Good pub food
There are a couple Japanese places down Water St (W cordova turns into Water) - Guu
Transcontinental Steamworks (right next to Steamworks)
There's just not much there, and I speak as someone who has to eat quickly between the afternoon part and the evening part on Thursday and Friday!
