I'm going to be visiting Seattle Aug. 24-25 and want to make the most of my trip, food-wise, so am coming to Chowhounders for help. Help!
I'll be staying in the Capitol Hill area without a car, and as an artistic type am sort of on a budget so I'm looking for relatively inexpensive options.
I've already decided that even tho' it's touristy, I need to go to Pike Place Market. So that's a given. Anything specific there you'd recommend (I have a few ideas already)? Also, what's in season, produce-wise (esp. fruit), that I should look for either at the market or as an ingredient at restaurants? I'm coming from Arizona so am looking forward to the opportunity to have fresh, local things that we just can't grow here in the desert.
I'd definitely appreciate any "can't get that in Arizona!" or "only in Seattle!" type recommendations, but even if it's something more common but great ("best Italian" or whatever) that'd be good too. Doesn't HAVE to be in Capitol Hill but within an easy walk or public transportation commute would be best.
Thanks in advance!
