Myself and husband are visiting the northwest for 12 days, done tons of research, would like some tips on my itinerary.
We're staying at the W Seattle downtown near Pike Place Market.
Late lunch: Serious Pie vs Salumi? -- both close to our hotel. Sounds like Salumi may be winning out.
Pre-dinner: The Walrus & the Carpenter for oysters etc. QUESTION, would fitting in the Ballard Locks before or after our meal here make any sense? And if yes, before vs after? Was thinking after so we can place something in between our meals, but I definitely don't want to get to W&C too late and have to wait.
Full Tilt sometime while we're in Ballard
Dinner: Book bindery vs Canlis vs Sitka/Spruce vs other. Wanted to try Tilth b/c of Maria Hines but seems out of the way. Also Corson Building but again a bit out of the way. Thoughts?
After dinner drink options in area?? Perhaps head back to hotel for Spur
Breakfast: Pike place market - Beechers cheese (M&C), Mee Sum Pastries, Pike Place Chowder, Crumpet shop, Uli’s (sausage)
Late lunch: Revel. Anything interesting to check out in Fremont neighborhood before or after lunch?
After dinner drink options in the area?? Thinking Needle & Thread or Quinn's
Crumble & Flake before we get on the road
Maybe Sitka & Spruce brunch before we head to Lummi Island. Was thinking of stopping by Taylors shellfish farm, what is everyone's opinion on availability and even the fun of sitting outside shucking oysters at the end of Oct up north??
thanks for everyone's help ahead of time!! we can't wait.
