60th Birthday Dinner in Seattle
I'm flying in from our of town to surprise my mom on her 60th in the beginning of October. I'd like to plan a night out for her, me and my husband, and my sister and her boyfriend. (so 5 people total). I'm thinking drinks somewhere and then dinner somewhere else later.
I'm looking for places that have great food and drinks and stylish atmosphere but that don't completely break the bank. My mom skews more hip than formal, so I'm hoping for fancier hip places rather than a white linen tablecloth kind of thing.
Suggestions MUCH appreciated.
I would do drinks at Spur, I love their west coast Pimm's cocktail, with an appetizers or two there, (lamb tartare! Or ahi crudo! Wait, both!) then move to Bistro for small plates. Check the prices on their menu, because while my boyfriend and I found it completely reasonable for the quality of food and came away satisfied (if not a little overfull) from sharing 3 plates, a lambchop each (the best!!!), and a dessert, others have complained about the small-ity of the plates.
