Above average dining in the general area of Shoreline - Lynnwood?

ardelle | Dec 18, 201111:37 AM     56

I have sifted through many threads and have found few restaurants that stand out as better than average or they seem to get very mixed reviews.
We have to be in Lynnwood every day (it seems like for an indefinite period), near 185th and Aurora, and need good restaurants in that area; mostly for lunch. We require wine and beer and would like it to have wi-fi (but wi-fi is not a deal-breaker). We would like to stay within about a five mile radius. For dinner it can be farther out (as we are camping out at the Embassy Suite at I-5 and 44th, in Lynnwood). Last night we drove to Richmond, for disappointing Indian food at Mehfil.

We go to Arnie's, in Edmonds and occasionally the Saffron Grill and Ivar's Salmon House. We eat too many mediocre meals at Robb's 125th Street Grill. We think Las Margaritas is OK, but would like better.

We like all kinds of food. What seems especially missing is Asian and Indian that fits our requirements.
Perhaps we are a bit snobbish about food. Perhaps good food, service and sigh, atmosphere, is an oxymoron for the area.
We know there is good food in Seattle. We have eaten at Maximilien, Cutters Bayhouse, Lark, La Cocina Santiago and others. We just need to avoid the traffic snarls as our lunch schedule is not exactly in our hands.
Please help!
