What's the most unique food experience in Seattle?
Money is no object. No reservations required but I don't mind waiting 1hr+ for a seat (ideally at the bar). 20 minutes or less from downtown. I eat anything from 3 star tasting to back alley street food with the same passion. I'm here for 2 days, what should I eat? Extra credit, what beer should I track down and drink?
Why "no reservations"? Just curious, if you're willing to wait for a table but don't want to call ahead so you don't have to wait. Anyway...I think Poppy is fairly unique with non-traditional thalis. I also like eating "fancy" at Staple and Fancy. Oh, and Revel.

I may get hated on for this, but I'd go with Sky City, the Space Needle restaurant.
I'll admit it's kinda over-priced but the dishes themselves are solid if unspectacular (last time I enjoyed a nice braised short rib dish) and it's a fun experience.
Oh, and the Orbiter dessert is legitimately memorable.
Also on the Chamber of Commerce literature rack, but also unique and interesting and with serious elements of cuisine and/or culture, the Tillicum Village Tour and Cruise gets you a boat ride out Blake Island, a traditionally cooked salmon dinner, some good clams, and a great show of clacking native masks.
