Restaurants/bars near Sheraton/Tonight&tomorrow

lvnvflyer Oct 17, 2013 09:45 AM

Hi, hoping for recommendations for restaurants/bars either walking or short (ten to fifteen minute) cab ride from the Sheraton...group of four, love asian, gastropubs, seafood, sushi, probably not up for a very extended dinner (we are in town for a family situation); good cocktails and wine a big plus. TIA, and happy to return the favor in Chicago and Las Vegas!

      Lots of good choices in the Pike Place Market and Belltown area that are a 5-6 block walk. Long Provincial and Le Pichet would be my top 2. Short cab or longer walk extends to Shiro's, Poppy, Altura, Bar Sajor.

        If you want an excellent selection of fresh local seafood, visit Blueacre, at 7th & Olive, a very short walk from your hotel.

          FYI, beginning tonight, Blueacre has a fantastic special dish for the weekend with two prime varieties of King Salmon. Quintessential Northwest fare:. From the restaurant:

          "Feeder Kings are considered the finest salmon eating experience possible. Feeders have the highest Omega 3 content of any fish, and their flesh may be red, white, or a combination of both.

          It is generally observed that the Ivory Feeder Kings are milder and nuttier than the Red Feeder Kings which tend to have more assertive flavor.

          This Weekend Both Fish Will Meet On One Plate. So YOU Can Decide. Are You Team Red? Or Team Ivory?

          Receive One 4 Ounce Piece Of Red Feeder King Salmon with WA Port Soaked Cherries And Cracked Rosemary Smoky Almond Brown Butter Alongside One 4 Ounce Piece of Ivory Feeder King Salmon With Steamed Potatoes And Sauce Vierge."

          Let us know afterwards where you dine during your visit, and your impressions. Enjoy your stay!

          Try Lecosho on the Harbor Steps at the foot of University Street. If you get their for happy hour their sardines on toast is one of my favorite happy hour snacks. Very tasty cocktails. Their house-made sausage is also tremendous. It's a short walk from your hotel.

            Head up the hill from your hotel to the Pike/Pine corridor. A lively, lovely walk with all kinds of interesting shops coffee spots and bars all the way up the hill. Or take a cab up, and walk back down :)

            Go to Quinn's - excellent Gastropub (sorry those of you who don't like the term - I think quinn's is just exactly that). Nice local beers on tap, good wines, cocktails and great bistro food. Marrow bones, Wild Boar sloppy joe, etc.

              Up the hill from the Sheraton is Melrose Street that is a food lover's delight. I like Mamnoon. Sitka & Spruce is probably for an extended dinner. Tango is on the way to Melrose--small plates.

                Taylor Shellfish is up the hill as well and is terrific for fresh shucked oysters and a glass of vino prior to dinner!
