    There are 100 answers to this question, as at your disposal is all of Belltown and Seattle's Chinatown and Little Saigon. In these, you'll meet dozens of good eateries in a brisk walk. I guess best might be to hear more about what you want. Easy answers are: Union, Dahlia Lounge, Palace Kitchen, Chez Shea, and most anything that turns up in a search of this site for "Pike Place." Budget comfort is a good place to start, as we can you great options at $200 per person or $50, or even $25. You like Meditteranean? Pub-Grub? Seafood? Pizza? Vietnamese? (pick this one, it's great here).

        Steelhead Diner for a good meal that won't cause wallet fatigue.
