My husband and I visit Seattle a few times a year and it's always the same - we go to the places we love and don't try anything new. I love new places, but he thinks of them as expensive risks.
We love Metropolitan Grill for prime steak, no doubt, but I'm getting tired of Chateaubriand (okay, maybe that's a lie - who would tire of that luscious steak they serve) and want to try something new.
We really have higher end culinary tastes, so when you recommend, try to recommend GREAT food.
We did once go to a place in West Seattle with friends - across from the beach - a little intimate Italian place with about 10 tables... and forgot the name. Would love to have someone tell me what that is called.
Anyone remember an Italian restaurant in the University area... I think it might have been Moretti's, but not sure. It was casual, but right next door, the chef opened a finer dining spot. This was around 1990 or so.
