I've searched the board a bit, but I haven't been able to find a "consensus" (if such a thing exists) for the best chowhound find in Seattle or Bellevue. Here are some of the ones that I've found recommended:
Matt's in the Market
Campagne or Cafe Campagne
I'm flying in from California tomorrow, so if anyone can shed some light on how to rank these or any other must-eat restaurant, it would be much appreciated. French, Mediterranean, Pan-Asian--all types of restaurants are acceptable, but really, I'm looking for the best food I can find if I only have time for one nice dinner.
