Anniversary Trip-- 4 days in Seattle

  • 5

First time visitors to Seattle and we are looking for a few recommendations. We will be staying downtown and won't have a car. We are comfortable with public transportation so if we can bus/light rail/ferry somewhere that is totally fine. We are both adventurous eaters and try to eat where the locals go whenever we are someplace new.

#1 Anniversary dinner: Ideally I'd like a place with a tasting menu, but it isn't a deal breaker. I'm hearing good things about Canlis and Altura.

#2 Sushi: We both LOVE sushi. Doesn't need to be fancy, just good.

#3 Dinner in Fremont?

#4 Good seafood place (possibly near the water, but not a biggie). If this overlaps with anniversary dinner all the better.

Anything else we should be sure to hit?

Thanks!

  1. Lots of good suggestions on many threads, More info and suggestions than you can do in four days! Enjoy your visit. (The Grayelf thread contains a lot of really current info!)

    1. There's not many places in Seattle offering tasting menus these days. One new place that I haven't been to but have heard good things about is Restaurant Marron. Canlis, of course. I heard Crush has changed and is now doing "Tastes", here's a write up of it: http://gastrolust.com/2014/07/new-tas...
      I don't know what that means for the restaurant now that it's up for sale.

      My favorite place for sushi is Kisaku in the Tangletown neighborhood.

      Can I ask why dinner in Fremont? There are some great places that are Fremont-ish if it doesn't have to be in Fremont proper.

      1. re: Lauren

        We are going to be in Fremont one day and figured we'd see if it was worth staying up there to eat. If not, we are staying downtown.

      2. #1 Canlis

        #2 I defer to others.

        #3 RockCreek http://www.rockcreekseattle.com/

        #4 is covered by #3, the proverbial two birds with one stone, opening up another slot to fill, which is a good thing since there are so many great possibilities here.
