A short visit to Seattle

I'm visiting Seattle in early July and looking for a few great restaurants in the downtown area. A couple suggestions that I would like to get feedback on are Cafe Zoe and Crow?

  1. I would add Long's Provincial on Second Avenue. Great, creative appetizers and a complex blend of main dishes. Very affordable and definitely Chow-worthy.

    1. I'm a fan of Le Pichet. It's on 1st just south of Virginia [near the Market]. Nice French cafe with delicious food. They also have very good pastries. It would be a nice place for an sidewalk lunch on a sunny day.

      1. re: seattleviking

        Zoe is great, Crow is one of my favorite Seattle restaurants, and Le Pichet is also great. You can't go wrong with any of these. I haven't been to Long yet.

        My go-tos in downtown are Palace (Northwestern), Serious Pie (pizza), Tavolata (Italian), and Kushi Bar (izakaya) -- all of which have been fairly abundantly posted about on this site.

        Zoe is by far the most high end of any of these, and a reservation is essential. Tavolata is not far off; the rest are pretty moderate.

        Serious Pie
        316 Virginia St, Seattle, WA 98101

        Kushi Bar
        2319 2nd Ave, Seattle, WA 98121

        2323 2nd Ave, Seattle, WA 98121

      2. Thank you for the feedback. I guess I should add a few more meals to the agenda.
