Need rec for dinner


I'm coming into Seattle for the first time and will be meeting a friend whom I have not seen in 35 years for dinner on 9/3/11. As we will have a lot to talk about, I need a recommendation for a quiet restaurant that will allow us to linger over dinner. I'd like the menu to be not so focused on any one cuisine, as I don't know what his likes and dislikes are, and I don't like Indian. Price can be anywhere from low to moderately expensive (like not over $125 for two for dinner/drinks). I'm staying at the Pan Pacific Hotel but I imagine I can get a cab to most anywhere. Funky and eclectic are a plus. Thanks so much for your advice!

  1. Mistral Kitchen is close and good, but not particularly funky or eclectic. Pasta Freska might be a good choice too, but it's not exactly a varied cuisine. Chez Shea might be a good option, but it might push the upper end of your price range, depending on what you order.

    Just a few ideas.

    Chez Shea
    94 Pike St. Suite 34, Seattle, WA 98101

    Pasta Freska
    1515 Westlake Ave N, Seattle, WA 98109

    Mistral Kitchen
    2020 Westlake Avenue, Seattle, WA 98121
