And now what?
Client is coming to town. He has a preference for the less ordinary foods...as he is well traveled.
Last time we went to Long Provincial for dinner, which was excellent. Was going to take him to Facing East this time, but they are now staying in Seattle rather than Bellevue.
Any suggestions for west side restaurants that are a little out of the box. Doesn't have to be the whole menu, but some interesting options would be good. Doesn't have to be Asian either. But can't be "seafood fettucine."
Toulouse Petit offers an amazingly diverse menu that is well executed. (Your client won't be bored with the food.) I also believe Harvest Vine would be good as well. (Make sure you reserve your table downstairs in the wine cellar--not upstairs.)

The downstairs wine cellar at Harvest Vine is great for quiet conversation, especially for a party of three or more, but I always sit at the counter where I can watch the food being prepared and chat with the cooks about sourcing, cooking technique, etc. If there's only a party of two, I don't find that it interferes with the conversation with my dining partner.
