Looking for restaurant advice
We are taking a cruise to Alaska this summer and leaving from Seattle. We are flying in a few days early. Need lunch and dinner recommendations for 2 days.Definitely looking for fish. We live in between NYC and Philly so no Italian. Thanks in advance.
If you're starved for seafood, we'll fix you up:
1. Mussels at Maximillian's at the Market
2. Szechuan Crab at Seven Stars Pepper Restaurant
3. Pink Snapper chili lemongrass at Long's Provincial
4. Lemon crusted halibut at the Steelhead Diner
5. Aljemas clams at Harvest Vine
6. Fresh oysters at the Oyster happy hour at Elliott's
7. The crab & avacado appetizer at 94 Stewart St
8. Fish & Chips at Emmet Watson's
9. Quinalt River Sturgeon at Etta's Seafood
10. Crispy pig tails at the Palace Kitchen. (Okay, not seafood, but tasty.)

2020 Western Avenue, Seattle, WA 98121
94 Stewart Street, Seattle, WA 98101
So you'll be walking distance or a short cab/bus ride north of Belltown, or a short cab/bus ride to Queen Anne. In Belltown I really like the food at Spur, which included a great tuna crudo, and a cured salmon plate the last time I was there, along with a really delicious tartare.
If you're willing to cab a bit further, I always enjoy sitting upstairs in the bar at Ray's Boathouse, watching the seals play in the sound and the sunset over the water, eating a big bowl of steamed clams and drinking one of our local Seattle IPAs. It's not new or fancy, but a place that I always want to go back to when I have a free sunny afternoon in Seattle.
