Visiting Seattle (from LA) for a long weekend in mid July, staying at the Grand Hyatt on Pine Street. Celebrating my wife's birthday on the day of our arrival.
Would be very grateful for any recommendations for a special place (preferably) within easy reach of the hotel.
Somewhere smart but not too stuffy, maybe with good views and/or a romantic atmosphere. Prefer modern American/Pacific Northwest style, budget of around $150-200 total for the 2 of us (only me drinking alcohol).
Also interested to hear any other recommendations for Seattle first timers likely to be following the usual tourist routes over the two and a half days. Always nice to make informed choices......
