Bumbershoot Festival weekend (Sept 3-5) - recs for eats?

jubilant cerise | Jul 26, 2011 09:18 PM

I've almost attended every year of the Bumbershoot Festival in the past 10 years and strangely still have no clue where to eat when I'm there. When my partner's brother lived there, he took us to places I vaguely remember (tapas, diner-style sandwiches) or cooked for us (nice, eh?). We also ate at the festival (tasty but pricey and not so healthy after several days) or stumbled upon a place and hoped for the best. This year I'd really like to have a list of places to check out.

We're looking for tasty but low-cost eats and also somewhere to grocery shop. My partner and I are omnivores, do not have any food allergies and like a wide variety of cuisines (though he recently OD on Mexican so I don't think I can persuade him towards that during our visit). I'm a little health conscious but I certainly wouldn't be adverse to one gluttonous treat during our visit - NPR's Sandwich Monday reviewed Salumi ( and I really want a sandwich from there but sadly they're only open Tues-Fri.

We're within walking distance to the Bumbershoot Fest and will be walking everywhere, so that's a consideration for us too.

Thanks in advance for your help!
