Hello all, i've never been to Seattle and i'm looking forward to exploring what I hear is a wonderful food scene. I will be happy to help any of you when you come to DC with DC related questions in the future (perhaps for inaguration) Here is what I would like to know. I will be staying near the university of washington (my friend is a post doc there). We will have acess to a car and i'm willing to travel.
1. Are there any must visit lunch places in that area?
2. Are there vendors that are must see at pike place market?
3. What are you favorite coffee shops for chill atmosphere (i'm talking beat up couches that feel like living rooms). Bonus points if the coffee and food are awesome!
4. I have three dinners saturday sunday and monday night and at least one brunch. My friends i'm staying with don't have tons of money so moderately priced is best and not super fancy. I enjoy asian cuisine (i'd love to try some sushi or thai). I also would like to try the local cuisine (crab maybe...i'm not really sure whats local in seattle). I also love italian, indian and good old fashion american.
Any help you can give would be appreciated. Thanks so much in advance.
