      Steak is out, seafood, interesting PNW food, they are from California

        Seastar probably meets your criteria best.

          Pearl looks interesting for seafood?

          1. re: DPStan

            I haven't been overly impressed with my meals there, but have only been there once for dinner - the other times have been for lunch. I think Seastar has a better reputation.

              If you have to pick between Pearl and Seastar, I'd go with Seastar.

              McCormick's will probably have better seafood (more variety and quality), but it's a tad less upscale than Seastar.

              I've also had some pretty decent seafood dishes at John Howie's.
