I am traveling to Seattle (from Florida) for the first time and made the mistake of letting Hotwire pick my hotel for me. I am staying next to Qwest Field, and from my understanding, it is not the safest neighborhood. Any tips on eating in this area? How's walking around the area? How's the best way to traverse to Pike Place? A search of chowhound archives didn't turn up much. I will be there for 4 days at the end of March.
Also is the Walrus and the Carpenter as good as everyone says it is? I am thinking that this will be our one "must hit" restaurant. Was also looking at Spur, Etta's and Dahlia's.
Finally, I am gluten intolerant, so any advice on the best gf places woudl be highly appreciated.
