Seattle restaurants update?

Jump to last reply

I haven't been to Seattle in about 4 years so need a little update. I am amazed that using the search here I can't find much of anything about Seattle dining since 2007 and 2010 other than some of the neighborhoods places.

We'll be staying at the Grand Hyatt and will turn our car in after we go to "wine country" on Saturday and will have lunch at The Barking Frog. Generally we'd like places we can walk to. We're planning on Wild Ginger one night -- I've had great meals there. And it's hard to pass up Dahlia Lounge, but surprised it no longer seems to come up on lists of "bests" -- has Tom Douglas "slipped" in the ratings?

For seafood, frankly I've always been wowed with Etta's although the atmosphere isn't much. Would Matt's at the Market be a better option? Or another choice in our area? Always liked Flying Fish, but not even sure it's still there or the same, and it is just SO LOUD!

Like some nice atmosphere along with good food. Dare I use the words "quiet and romantic" rather than "loud and frenetic"? We're partial to Asian and Pacific Northwest, probably not Italian.

So tell me, what would your four choices be for the four nights?

Oh, and we're really thinking of doing that over the top seafood brunch on Sunday at Salty's at Aliki. Nothing like totally pigging out on crab, oysters, and all the rest. So probably a lighter fare place Sunday night.

Also one more. We pick up our car downtown when we first fly in on Saturday just before noon and drive immediately to Vancouver. Would like to stop and have a nice seafood lunch "on the way" after we pick up the car. I'm thinking of Ivar's at Multikeo? Or maybe a place on Union Lake?
