SEA. 4 days Downtown

Steve Drucker | Jun 30, 200510:50 AM     4

For a shortly upcoming business trip. Justification is business, but pervasive sub-text is chow.

May stay either downtown or at the south end of the Lake Union area--still tbd. Will be getting around by walking, bus and when necessary--taxi.

I probably need to do some entertaining, but still hold to a startup budget.

Preliminary research:
Armendino's Salumi. Will probably hit this 2:00 PM day of arrival; and once again before departing.

Coffee--not a holy grail for me, but have noted Cafe D'arte and Cherry Street should serendipity provide.

Tamarind Tree (thinking about this for entertaining on a budget, as client prospects are adventurous)

Matt's. Seems so small, may be hard to get in.

Etta's. Not quite sure what the deal is with Etta's. Needs more research.

Maximilien. Have made note, but may be beyond the budget.

Saigon Cafe

El Purrco Lloron

Elliott's for oysters

Pho Cyclo. Not sure how accessible by bus from downtown. Is this really great--in the sense of LA's great Pho places?

Panos Kleftiko. Is this really great--in the sense of Chicago's great Greek restaurants? Not sure how time/distance accessible by bus from downtown.

Jones BBQ. Unless world class and thus a must, have made note should it come up.

Would like to know where to get a good straight ahead breakfast (boring old bacon, eggs, maybe a bagel--NO muffins) downtown.

Despite digging, unclear about if there are really top places in the International District--would love some 411--open to (and a lover of) all cuisines.

Ditto kabobs/middle eastern/south asian downtown, i.e. any really good to exc places?
