OK hounds- you haven't let me down yet- I got great recs for San Francisco last summer-so here we go. Guttergourmet's wife and I with 7 year old are Seattle virgins coming for 2 weeks in mid-August. As always we will entertain my daughter during the day (Aquarium, Zoo, Space Needle, Pike Market (OK that's for me), Experience Museum (OK, also for me), whale watching, Ferry to Victoria, etc. other recs?) and have arranged for babysitters for 6 nights so Wife and I can EAT real food. During the days I plan to hit Salumi (gimme culatello)no less than 8 times (just finished reading Buford's "Heat" and have eaten multiple times at Mario Battali's restaurants in NY). Will also hit Matt's, I'll solo at Nishino one night and we're staying at the Fairmont so Shuckers looks good (more oyster recs please?!). So far planning Mistral, Dahlia Lounge, Harvest Vine , Wild Ginger and trying to choose among Herbfarm, Lampreia and Crush. Waddya say?
