I'll be in Seattle next week for around 48 hours. I will have about two meals' worth of free time to get out and run around. I'm dying to eat somewhere that's uniquely Seattle, completely unlike anything we've got back in New England, and within walking distance (less than a mile or so) of the Fairmont Olympic hotel, where I'll be staying.
At first glance, the food immediately around doesn't look very exciting. I was thinking of hitting up Unicorn, Honey Hole, or even Mistral or Sitka and Spruce if I can wrangle the dough. I'm into weird, experimental, blatantly regional, bizarre foods. Bonus points if I can buy an eclectic t-shirt on site.
Let me know what your favorites are- I don't want to have to eat an $18 burger at the hotel!!!
