You all are great!
As a midwest Chowhound I knew where to go for rec's for my recent (3weeks of this July) trip. We had four days in Seattle before heading to a friend's place on San Juan Island. The hotel Warrwick was a good central location for some great food- not much of it in the "chow" grade, but we loved the special spots.
Cafe Margaux- in the hotel had an easy, tasty and reasonable 3 course prix fix that filled my three teens.
Dahlia's- glorious- a bit over the top for teens but they got into it and especially loved the creme carmel. The tiny next door bakery is perfect for lunch or tea.
Lola- also on forth street- was a fun spot with a greek/mediteranian flare. Breakfast is also served from 7am to 3pm. I had an fab' smoked pork chop with my omlete. The kids liked the lamb burgers. Good pita spreads.
Asaggio next door - was considered a treat by my family(I missed out)- they were especially happy with the pastas.
Down the street a couple blocks was a great chinese place( I hope someone knows the name- the place os on the Dahlia's side of the street).
All in all the area was densly packed with great options- most of which I knew about from you folks!
Do I even need to talk about the Pike street market area? WOW- Make time for the Pink Door and for the three hens( or is it sisters?) bakery across the street from the mascot pig. The cheese sticks were especially sinful.
When I told a friend about the trip I mentioned that I had not found one bad place to eat in Seattle. She assured me there were some. I realized that my assesment was due to the Chowhound input! Many Thanks! I can't wait to get back for another visit.
