Here's the deal. My husband and I, along with my parents, are headed to Seattle this weekend to attend an art exhibition that my father has a piece in. We will be staying at the Mayflower Park downtown and I have taken on the responsibility of finding the restaurants where we will be eating. We will also be meeting my brother-in-law and his wife (both are vegetarians) for an early dinner on Saturday.
I want to take my father to a great seafood place, since that is what he most excited about regarding the trip, but because of the vegetarians we'd rather go for lunch on Saturday before we meet up with them. I'm having a hard time finding a well-reviewed restaurant that serves lunch on the weekends. It doesn't really matter where it is, as we will have a rental car.
For Saturday night dinner I'm thinking that an Italian place would be the best way to accommodate everyone but I need a place close to downtown, open for an early dinner, mid-range (~$20-30/person), and good for a group of 6. From reading some threads, I'm considering The Pink Door, La Fontana Siciliana, or La Vita E Bella.
I am not set on Italian and if anyone has any other ideas, I would be very appreciative.
Thanks in advance.
