Looking for quintessential Seattle eateries

JBinOC | Aug 12, 201109:57 AM     7

Hi,

In every city, there are eateries that are beloved for aura, stability/longevity, etc. by its citizens, and are equally well-known outside its borders.

For example, in LA, everyone knows about Spago (on the high-end) and the delicious french dip sandwiches of Philippe's (on the modest end). In Philadelphia, it was places like Bookbinder's [now closed] and the ever-thriving Pat's and Geno's Steaks. NY...Peter Luger, Nobu, Katz's Deli, etc.

In Seattle, are there any quintessential dining experiences...especially on the moderate end?
In my limited research and experience, the only two I can come up with are
Salumi [which unfortunately I will miss since this is a Friday night-Monday night visit] and
13 Coins.

Visiting Aug. 19-22. Based downtown near the Pike Place Market but willing to travel.
NYC native now in Southern California.

Thanks for your help.
