Rec's for great dinner in DT Seatlle for a first time visit..

I am a long time lurker on Chow and first time poster. I am taking my Husband to Seattle, this will be his first time and a repeat visit for me..allbiet never for pleasure :)

I would love recommendations for a wonderful dinner in Downtown Seattle..We will be on foot from the Westin. Husband isn't one for 'fancy' food but loves good food! Would love to get a great taste of Seattle our first night as we only have one dinner date night as the following night we will be at the Ballgame! We 'chowed' our way through Spain on chowhound advice and would love to take a look at any Seattle finds...

Moderate Price range... casual to know, date night xo

Thanks for all you suggestions and recs! We will keep in touch and post pics of our culinary journey...

  1. Steelhead Diner is in walking distance and is a nice place to dine with a NW flair.
    Most of the Tom Douglas places (Palace Kitchen, Serious Pie, Etc) would also fit your critera.

    1. Matt's in the Market. Quintessential Seattle. You won't regret it ;-)

      1. Chez Shea (next to Matt's) or the Steelhead Diner as Paqpln suggested. You can't go wrong with either one!

          1. Thank you so much for the suggestions! Have not yet heard about a couple of the recommendations and Matts in the Market was a repeat rec I have read about. We are really looking forward to exploring Seattle and as promised will photograph our culinary choices!
