I'm going to be in Seattle for 3 days/3 nights for work. A good portion of dining will be done on my own. So I'm trying to figure out where I can go both alone and with someone. I have gotten some good recs from past posts and topics, but please help me refine my choices or add to the list. I've included some links for other Seattle first-timers as they ready their own eat-lists.
Palace Kitchen - dinner at bar
Matt's in the Market - lunch at pike place/catfish sandwich -- other good items on menu?
Stealhead Diner - anything special? or not for this trip?
Piroshky Piroshky - Russian Bakery - i'm polish and make my grandmother's pierogi recipes -- are these worth it? which are the best?
Top Pot Donut - worth it?
Salumi - italian cured meats -- the website says something about call-in orders only. but there's no mune. what's the deal? or should i go with deluarenti's instead?
Brasa - Spanish, good HH/bar menu
Gelatiamo -- do they have nutella gelato, my favorite
Poppy - thali and desserts - eat at the bar? can a solo eater enjoy it here? or is there too much for one diner.
Dahlia Lounge - lunch/HH
Café Besalu in Ballard - breakfast/pastries/cardamom pretzel/ginger biscuit/pain du chocolat -- what are other good recs in ballard?
Pike Place Market -- what are the other 'can't-be-missed' 's
Other Tom Douglas spots OK to dine solo? at the bar?
Cream Cheese hot dogs - where's the best one? is it worth it? and what do i get on it? (besides cream cheese, of course).
Zig Zag - cocktails/lounge
Mee Sum Pastry - humbow/at pike place -- what is the best kind?
Starbuck's number one - i'm a daily starbucks guy and have to make the pilgrimage and pay my respects
