Hi all: I'll be in Seattle for work on the dates mentioned - I'm a native NYer, and am excited to try some new PNW food! I'd love to try some good sushi, some good locally grown cuisine (French, new American, etc.) and am also wondering about Salumi (worth the wait? how long is the wait?). I'll be staying at the W hotel on 4th Avenue - would be interested in any restaurants which are in a different (cab distance) part of the city so I could get a feel for something other than the area outside the hotel. Thinking of going to the market right when I get there on Thursday, and sushi Thursday night. Still need dinner Friday and lunch on Saturday.
Also - any good wine shops which sell local vintages / other specialty food stores for gifts, etc., would be appreciated. THANKS!
