Help with narrowing down choices for upcoming Seattle sojourn

Splendid Wine Snob | May 4, 2010 12:07 PM

Hi Seattle hounds,

I've been doing my research and have narrowed down my picks to the following restaurants. If you could indicate must order dishes/favorites, that would be great.

Elliott's for Oysters
Anchovies and Olives
Joule
Tilth
Spring Hill
Le Pichet
Salumi
Cafe Bresalu
Zig Zag for cocktails

For my one blow out meal, I am thinking Crush or Canlis. Right now leaning toward Crush. Any thoughts? What may push me over the deciding edge is the wine and wine service. How are the wine pairings with the tasting menu at Crush?

Also torn between Kisaku and Shiro's. Which has a better omakase experience and would they be comparable in price?

Finally, I am going to be doing some wine shopping to fill some gaps in my cellar. Are there any great wine shops that you can recommend? I'll be staying in the downtown core but will travel for great wine...

Thanks in advance. Looking forward to experiencing Seattle's best!
