Hi 'hounds -
Just posted a question re: Tacoma restaurants but would love input on a few Seattle opportunities, too.
We will be in Tacoma for around 10 days before Xmas, coming from Brussels with 18-month-old son in tow. I'm hoping to escape the suburbs for one or two day trips to Seattle, and to that end, am jonesing for (a) Asian, (b) fish and chips, and (c) a knock-me-flat FANTASTIC regionally inflected/utmost respect for ingredients/creativity in the kitchen/you get the picture meal.
The last one, realistically, would have to be sans enfant, but any insight into the kid-tolerance of the other places would be fantastic (high chair available? not likely to horrify with the occasional squawk?).
Oh, and Dungeness crab. I haven't had it in decades and I WANT SOME.
My list below is culled from reading through a bunch of recent posts, so thanks to all who inspired it (Tom Armitage, this means you.) :o) Any rankings, not-to-miss dishes or alternative suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
FISH AND CHIPS
Pike Street Fish Fry – fish and chips
Jack’s Fish Spot – Dungeness crab
How to Cook a Wolf
Spinasse (I know, it's Italian, but holy cr*p, the menu sounds good. On the other hand, we're closer to Florence and Rome than we are to Seattle...)
Sitka & Spruce
Matt’s in the Market
