Recommendation for 3 days (French, seafood)

Will be in Seattle end of Jan for 3 days (3 dinners and 3 lunches) with my adult daughter. Looking for fine and casual dining options. Can be high end but not outrageously expensive. ($150pp max)

Looking for:
- Good French with seared foie gras
- seafood (of course) Walrus & Carpenter is on the list. Any others not to miss?
- Tapas
- Indonesian/Singaporean
- Hungarian (goulash)
- Cantonese jook

Thanks in advance.

  1. Taylor Shellfish is a good casual spot for, well, shellfish. I haven't found any actual Indonesian restaurants, but there's a place called Satay in Wallingford with a few Indonesian dishes.

    1. This is not a strong tapas city, but Terra Plata in Capitol Hill is tapas-ish and good.

      1. Harvest Vine for tapas, or Pintxo.

        I agree on not much in the way of Indo/Singaporean, but there are a few Malaysian places if that's close enough. I've heard good things about Kedai Makan, which is basically a take-out window with a limited menu, and Malay Satay Hut has roti canai, nasi lemak, singaporean noodles, bak kut teh, hainanese chix rice...

          Kedai Makan is simply amazing. Their roti is great, and the rotating specials I've tried have been (and I use this word very rarely) mind-blowing. If you're in the mood for a casual evening and a taste of the Capitol Hill scene, you can order something there and eat it at the dive-ish bar next door (specializes in ginger beer-based bevs). They've got a nice little symbiotic eats/drinks relationship going on.

            I'll echo AmbroseBurnside's words which, as he/she pointed out, are not exaggerated. On a recent trip, I ate plenty of good food, but none of it stands out the way that Kedai Makan did.

        2. Aragona for small plates/Tapas

          1. Olivar is good spanish with some small plates. Le Pichet and Cafe Presse have standard French lunch stuff. So does Campagne and Maximilien. Pintxo is good bar/tapas. Rock Creek is good new seafood in Fremont
