Seattle Restaurants near Hyatt

We will be without car for a weekend in Seattle. Seeking restaurants for lunch and dinner within 12 blocks of Hyatt Place at 110 6th Ave North. Searched the board and selected the following: Pink Door, Jack's, Dahlia Bakery, Barolo and Wild Ginger. Are these close to our hotel? Did I miss a place you could recommend? All cuisines and price ranges are good.

Thanks in advance for any help!

  1. The Pink Door is a Seattle institution. If the weather is good, the deck is wonderful. I am not familiar with Jack's, but I suggest the Palace Kitchen, Maximillien's at the Market, Steelhead diner and Matt's at the Market. Local Chowhounds are not warm to Wild Ginger. Not because of the food, but because they became totally commercial when they moved from Western Avenue. I would describe the dining experience as surgically sterile. Still, the food is very good but I would suggest Long's Provincial as a creative alternative.

    1. re: Leper

      Tripper, It just occurred to me you were speaking of Jack's Seafood Spot which is a tiny, open-air lunch counter in the Market. (Jack's is not a dinner destination.) For some fun Chowhound grazing, I suggest the following lunch itinerary:
      1. Oysters on the half-shell at Emmet Watson's in the Market
      2. Chowder at Jack's Seafood Spot
      3. Mussel's at the upstairs bar at Maximillien's at the Market. (Fresh daily from nearby Whidbey Island.)
      You will not be stuffed and will experience some of the best of the local seafood offerings.

        Thanks for helping me narrow it down. The market sounds really good for lunch and I checked out the menu at Palace Kitchen...that looks wonderful as well.
