I did a search and didn't see much on this. I'm going to be in Seattle, staying downtown at the Fairmont, for two nights next week. Does anyone have recommendations for good eats near the hotel? Actually, I will have a car, so walkable places aren't strictly necessary but probably easier. I'm traveling on business, so budget is flexible. I don't think the best food is necessarily the most expensive, but I'm not limited to only casual places.
I like Italian, seafood, steak/grilled meat, Spanish/tapas, most anything except I'm finicky about Asian food. Generally when I travel for work I like to experience whatever is good in the place I'm visiting (for example, when in Baltimore once, I made sure I got some good crab). So food that is known to be good in the area is really what I'm after. I'm assuming in Seattle this means seafood, but I'm sure there are other less obvious great local options.
