Seattle Restaurant Suggestions

We are a family of five (me, DH, and kids 18, 16, and 9) spending a few days in Seattle. We are looking for some restaurant suggestions in Seattle. Prefer to avoid high-end places. Any type of food.

There's a LOT of good restaurants in Seattle. Some hints as to what your family likes and where exactly you'll be will get you better specifics. In downtown, it's hard to go wrong with any of Tom Douglas' places (Lola, Serious Pie, Palace Kitchen, Etta's). Will you be in any of the neighborhoods, will you have a car?

We will not have a car while in Seattle. Our tastes run the gamut, so any type of food is fine. Our hotel is not too far from the Space Needle.

I'm trying this place for brunch next week, had a positive review in the Times last week: www.tilikumplacecafe.com. It's on Cedar near Seattle Center. Tons of places in lower Queen Anne neighborhood (which is probably where you're staying). If you like Thai, there are several good places in that area - Tup Tim Thai is one. There's a Gordon Biersch and an Il Fornaio in Pacific Place Mall and a fun food court at Westlake Center. Ummm...let's see. You could take a trip through the Market and everyone could pick their favorites from the stalls for a picnic. Victor Steinbreuck park at the north end has benches and great views. For breakfast, you might walk to Top Pot doughnuts on 5th Ave.

If you're at Pike Place Market, I love Emmett Watson's Oyster Bar. It's an old timey place with fish & chip styled baskets, menus printed on a paper bag! It's near the original Starbucks.

Mama's Mexican Kitchen, Ohana's Tiki Bar, and the Frontier Room BBQ in Belltown are all kind of fun kitchy places.

Cutter's Bayhouse at the north end of the Market has a huge menu, kids choices, and a view of the water. Mid-range prices.

These are all downtown/Belltown, I'm not up on the area around the Center for restaurants. Besides Dick's Hamburgers!! Hopefully other will help with close by options.

Check out the Pacific Northwest forum on www.chowhound.com. Search "cheap eats" or "must see Seattle", you'll get a flurry of answers for every palate and price range.

The Kids would like the EMP. Something for everyone. Kind of neat eating at the TurnTable. The menu names are fun. Food is good.

But you do have to have a Dick burger. They are an institution in Seattle.

Ditch the kids and go to Teatro Zinzanni, at least one night. Food is excellent. Entertainment awesome. Worth every penny. Really good value for having dinner and a show all in one place. A place you will tell your friends about. I do!
