What is the Seattle Food seen all about?

Monte | Oct 13, 2005 04:40 PM

I'm a Toronto Hound. I will be in Seattle on business for the next 3 months. I will be staying at a hotel in the downtown core and working out at Boeing Field.

I have a few questions (keep in mind that I'm price sensitive, but willing to splurge periodically):

What defines Seattle food? From American? From Californian? From Vancouver?

What are some of the local dishes? Where can I get these?

What are the major ethnic influences in Seattle?

Targeting local fare with local crowds: What are the MUST visits?

What grocery store items are unique to Seattle (and Washington)?

What are the best micro-brews in town?

Finally, where can I go for lunch around Boeing Field?

Let me know if I should separate these into different threads.

Thanks for all your help,
