There is some outdated info on this topic on the board - outdated because I hear the turnover on the Ave is high - so please provide your places to hit up and places to avoid on the Ave, for cheap or moderately cheap lunches?
Also, please mention notables within walking distance of Safeco Plaza if you have them.
I just started working in the neighborhood and am eager to go exploring. Thanks!!
So far I've tried Pagliacci (pretty good but they ran out of every pizza variety at 12:30 the one time I was there), tiny thai place near pizza (thai tom?) which was pretty decent although the quality of the meats (I got a chicken curry) was slightly below premium, and the indian/pakistani place in the other direction, where I have liked everything I've ordered in 2 visits (especially the okra - mmmm). And a coworker told me that 2 recent visits to a sushi place by the movie theater turned up cockroaches alongside the fish, so this will clearly be a pan.
