Help with One Dinner Please

tlubow Aug 8, 2013 11:00 AM

My husband, 25-year old daughter and I have one dinner in Seattle next Thurs. night before getting on a cruise. We really wanted to go to Walrus & Carpenter (especially my daughter), but the prospect of lining up at 4:00 p.m. is turning us off (or at least me and my husband), when we could be spending the afternoon seeing sights and noshing at Pikes Place. We currently have reservations at both Blueacre and Seastar and I don't know which to choose. We love seafood and want fish/oysters, etc. that we don't get in Southeast FL. Thanks in advance! p.s. we are staying at Hyatt on Olive Way.

    To appease your daughter and give you time to sightsee, you might want to consider Boat Street which is owned by the same folks who own W&C.

    You might also consider taking in the incomparable Pike Place Market and then enjoy dinner at Place Pigalle or Maximillien right in the Market and offering killer views and very good food.

      If you eliminate views from the equation (we are going to Alaska and will hopefully enjoy some fantastic views but not necessarily fantastic food), would you choose Boat Street over Seastar or Blueacre?

        None of these three are view restaurants. The menu online now for Boat Street shows just one fish entree.

        Boat Street is among my favorite restaurants in town, but so is Blueacre, and if you want to maximize your options for excellent Northwest seafood, I'd continue to vote that you head in that direction.

          I'm feeling the love for Blueacre.

          I looked up Boat Street and the menu didn't appeal to me.
