Steve's Quick Report on Seattle Visit

Steve in Philly | Oct 28, 200508:21 PM    

Hi All ! I'm back with a quick report. First, It did not rain for Friday and Saturday! And only occasionally after that.

For Breakfast I had to go with my friend who likes oatmeal.

First day we ate at The Athenian and it was great view. Food okay but coffee not Starbucks or Seattle's Best quality. Breakfasts not as cheap as most places. ($10.00 for eggs meat potatoes, toast and coffee including tax).

Sunday it was very busy so we ended up at Pike Place Restaurant across from Market. In same building as Matt's. Pecan Waffles at $6.50 but they were "all you can eat!". Had 1 1/2 orders.

For Lunch the Red "something" Brew Pub on 5th near the Red Lion Hotel was PERFECT. GREAT burgers (huge) and sandwiches at excellent prices and good beer.

Dinner first night at Eliott's. Pricey but good. Even better was next night at "The Fisherman". We had a group and so 5 of us chose the "meal" (good for 2 or more". We had HUGE bowl of Clams and Mussels, And Large Salad and Soup and Really large pieces of Grilled Salmon. $22.95 per person! We missed seeing the CURRENT special which adds Dungeness Crab to the above (Crab and Salmon) and is only $19.95. We'll return there!

Other than that I was in meeting until Tuesday when I went to Experience Music Project. Great museum but sadly short hours (10-5) as you need another 1/2 day to see it. And it's pricey at $19.99 plus $3.00 for the audio tour.

Well, that's a start!

Best,

Steve in Philly
