  1. Sazerac at the Hotel Monaco is good for breakfast, lunch or dinner, adler. Any dietary restrictions? Food likes or dislikes?

    1. What kind of places? Casual? Upscale? Ethnic? NW-centric? Is your teenage son a picky or adventurous eater? Will you have a car? Are you willing to take public transportation? Do you have any activities in mind for the weekend where you would be away from the hotel? Are there things that you absolutely don't like?

      1. re: Brunhilde

        We will not haves car and will be visiting the downtown tourist sites. We will warch the fireworks at south lake union. My son is a picky eater with a nut allergy. Probably will not be going for fine dining.

      2. Purple, a wine bar and cafe caddy corner fromt he W, is decent for lunch or dinner. there's nothing special, but the meny is diverse. Search this board for places to eat at Pike Place Market. It is one of the top downtown tourist spots and has lots of food choices. A few blocks down the street is Lola, which I really like for breakfast. It's a Tom Douglas Joint, and across the street is the Dahlia Lounge. More formal, but the originator of much that is now associated with Northwest dining and using what is local. Down the street is Serious Pie in one direction and the Palace Kitchen in another. Long Provincial is downtown and is Vietnamese.

        1. You are within easy walking distance of the Market, as some people have mentioned. Also the waterfront. Try Anthony's fish 'n' chips bar (I wouldn't bother with the fancy restaurant) or Elliott's for oysters. Tango up the hill on Pike is very good and has a dessert to die for--El Diablo. If you like to walk, the International District is a good option, or it's easy to take a bus or taxi. Try Green Leaf for good Vietnamese or Tsukushinbo for good Japanese at a reasonable price. Cafe Campagne in the Market serves good French food at a reasonable price. Le Pichet, a somewhat more expensive (but not much) French bistro is near the Market. Tulio's is very close to your hotel for reliable Italian (northern) and since it's a hotel restaurant (as is Sazerac), it's available for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
