Yay...I get to visit your beautiful city again! I'll be visiting a gf & her kids on the eastside (her DH is in the Great Sandbox of the Middle East), but plan to breakaway and have one nice meal (sans brats). I've been to many of your favourite spots and have scoured the boards for your recent favourites. I'd like to go to one place new; would you recommend Crush, Sitka & Spruce or Tilth?
While I'll be in town a couple days, I doubt that I will be able to venture out often. If I do, other restaurants would be old favourites (Elliott's or Palace Kitchen), pick up some local coffee roasts & smoked salmon. =D
