A Fish Called Wanda | Jul 19, 2006 07:00 PM

We are going to Vancouver for a week, and flying in and out of Seattle, so we'll be spending the saturday in the beginning and another saturday in the end of our trip in your fair city.

So, we have 2 lunches and 2 dinners. Yes, I know -- not enough time, so we need your help prioritizing.

We are from Boston, and I teach fish cooking classes. So we are not looking for touristy seafood experiences, but really great food that is unique to pasific northwest.

Here is what we are thinking:

Matt's in the market - the lunch menu looks a little sparce. do you think it would do the place justice or do we have to go for dinner?
Etta's - is it worth going if we try Palace Kitchen or Dahlia lounge for dinner?
any other good lunch places opened on a saturday?

Union -- does anyone know how much is the tasting menu? any recent opinions?
Flying Fish -- heard mixed reviews -- anyone been recently?
Palace Kitchen or Dahlia lounge -- which one would you choose and why?

That's already too many places. Which two would you choose for dinner? or would you choose something entirely different?

I am not putting any sushi places on our list intentionally -- we are going to Vancouver for a week and will have plenty of great sushi there, but if you think it's an oversight, let me know.

Thank you so much for your help :)

We are terribly excited about this trip!
