One fun night in Seattle
Looking for rec's for our next weekend's one night stay in Seattle. There will be 4 of us (2 couples)all in our early 30's - staying 2 blocks from pike market. We will have a car, but walking distance would be prefered.
Being from Vancouver we have our share of Asian/ethnic restaurants. Looking for a few decent restaurants/pub/gastro-pub's. Something somewhat casual and fun. Good food and drinks within a fairly reasonable price range !!
A few places I've tried: the black bottle, Spur.
So something along those lines, but really any advice on places that showcase Seattle's food scene and help in making it a fun night is greatly appreciated.
Also .. I was thinking Lowell's for breakfast..,?
Jmil, Based upon your criteria, the Palace Kitchen would be my go to place. I also recommend Lowell's for breakfast as a true Seattle experience.
As GingerShelley points out Quinn's is kind of the local standard-bearer for gastropubs; in your closer vicinity, Black Bottle would be a similar option. Many people love Spur, but I was unimpressed -- good food but overpriced and for my taste kind of finicky for a bar.
Might also recommend Lecosho (porktastic) very close to you in the Harbor Steps, second Leper's rec for Palace Kitchen (Northwestern comfort food) a slightly longer walk, or maybe Steel Head Diner, which is right in the market, kind of an upscale diner. And I have heard good things about Coterie nearby in Belltown but haven't been yet.
