so we'll be in Seattle for about 10 days (starting this thursday) and will be staying in a condo at Bell and 1st (is that Belltown?), but will have a car if needed. we're traveling with our parents and another couple of chowhounds, and our daughter who has just turned 1. we'd love some recs for some really tasty food. Baby is fairly good at restaurants, especially bustling ones, as long as the meal doesn't last too long, and we eat relatively early... we'd love general seafood recs, and i'm a particular fan of breakfast and brunch.
i've seen the polls of best restaurants and was wondering whether any of these would be okay with a kid? otherwise, we could possibly try to get the grandparents to babysit for a night... the ones that have caught my eye so far are Union, Matt's on the Market and Salumi. it sounds like Salumi would be idea to pick up sandwiches or whatever for a picnic.
another wrinkle is that it will be my dad's birthday during this trip, so he has requested an Asian seafood restaurant for his birthday dinner. i think his ideal would be Chinese, but others would work. the freshness of the seafood is most important. is there something that would fit the bill? also, it would be a friday or saturday night in a week and a half, for about 10 people, so nowhere too crowded....
thanks in advance for all of your help.
