Party of One - need a good meal while in SEA

I'll be travelling to Seattle on business, and arrive Sunday in time to grab a bite. Any recommendations for somewhere with great food for a solo diner? Perhaps a restaurant with great food that one would normally want to try while in town that also serves dinner at the Bar?

  1. I travel a lot for my job and often look for a great restaurant that serves dinner at the bar. Not sure where you are staying but here are a few recs in various parts of town. Cafe Campagne in Pike Market, Palace Kitchen downtown, Quinn's on Capitol Hill, Crow in lower Queen Anne.

    1. If you're downtown, it's tough to beat Palace Kitchen at the bar for a solo dinner.

      1. I second the nomination for Palace Kitchen. I also really like Restaurant Zoe and it has a nice bar. It's a quieter vibe; Palace is more lively, but can also be crowded and noisy. And dark, if you were thinking about reading at the bar.

        1. Also consider the bar at Harvest Vine. Traditional style tapas, can watch the chef's prepare food. Super friendly, super good food. Highly recommend.

            Good call, I always forget HV has a bar.

          2. Le Pichet on 1st Ave has great French bistro food and serves its full menu at the bar. Also, two blocks away is Buenas Aires Grille where you get great meat and sides; also served in the bar, or at the bar if you don't want the restaurant. Wonderful malbecs available from Argentina.
