speaking of Venezuelan sticky suns.....Stickies here! Traveling to Seattle tomorrow And need restos for solo dinner Weds thru Fri. Am staying at renaissance hotel at 515 Madison and will sign up for anything from a solo seat at the bar of a high end restaurant with great cocktails and wine by the glass to a hole in the wall ethnic joint. Would prefer something near the hotel but am very willing to take a cab for great food. Nothing overtly touristy unless it's really incredible. Tx in advance for great chow advice! Love this site and promise to report back on my adventures!
