I've only been to Seattle once before (about 2 yrs ago) and had wonderful meals at Lark, Lampreia among others.
Going to be back in town in two weeks and have perhaps one lunch and one dinner opportunity with a group of four. Read the recent thread "Crush vs. Sitka & Spruce".
Thinking about trying Sitka & Spruce for lunch and then either Union, Crush or Tavolata for dinner but need some guidance from locals. I'm seeking great execution and passion in the kitchen and front of the house; some energy in the room vs. quiet (not seeking the most romantic venue for this particular trip). The reviews I've read about S&S have been awesome. Should I go for dinner and risk a wait? Is the dinner vibe much better than lunch?
Other dinner recommendations you prefer instead of those mentioned? Thanks!
