If you want to splurge for a great steak and extras, then the Metropolitan Grille is highly recommended.

Last time I stayed in Seattle I ate a bunch of Dicks.

Re: Seattle - Where to eat in 2014?

Update on where we've been so far (some recommendations from here, some not.):
- Twede's Café (in North Bend) - Good burgers. Had a damn fine cup of coffee and some cherry pie because... Bought two collectible mugs... and dropped them (accidentally) outside the café. Shattered. Bought two more and my wife carried them.
- Gordito's - De-fucking-licious. Tempted to go back for the baby burrito.
- Mio Sushi - Gave wife a choice between Duke's and Mio, she chose Mio. Was actually pretty good.
- Original Waffle House - Had the coconut waffle and a couple "pigs in a blanket." The latter wasn't as good as I'd hoped, but the waffle was fantastic. A little over-priced altogether, though...
- Monkey Bridge - Vietnamese. Stopped there as it was close to Sonic Boom Records. Pretty decent, but the egg rolls were too tough.
- Dick's Drive In - We had to go at least once. Better than I expected, but not too filling.
- Italian Family Pizza (near Pike Place Market) - REALLY good basic pizza. The $8 small was enough for us, but we saw someone order the 23". HOLY. SHIT. I kind of wanted to order one "just because."
- Piroshky, Piroshky - Waited in line for maybe 20 minutes, but it was worth it. Delicious Russian pastries.

Today's our last day, and we're probably heading to Duke's. We tended to stick to downtown and around our hotel in general, but I think we did alright.

Re: Seattle - Where to eat in 2014?

If I ever make it back to Seattle, Elliott's is the 1st restaurant I'd go. (Just think of the name of the kid in E.T. as a way to remember the restaurant's name.)

http://www.elliottsoysterhouse.com/menus/dinner/

Assuming its quality is still the same as when I was there years ago, it's probably the best seafood place I've ever eaten in. The dungeness crab is pricey but completely worth it. And the salmon there is all wild-caught and even listed on the menu which river or location it came from (on the current menu, it lists Copper River salmon, Yukon River salmon, and Bristol Bay Southwest Alaskan salmon).

(BTW, I didn't have their oysters, so I can't report on those but it's obviously something they are famous for given the full name of the restaurant is "Elliott's Oyster House")

Go to Everett, do the Boeing tour, and then go to AFK Tavern. I recommend a pan galactic gargle blaster.

I always used to go to a Russian place downtown called Kaleenka. They closed their doors but still have a truck that goes to fairs and festivals. Their piroshky take me back to my memories of going to San Francisco as a kid and eating at a miniature Russian bakery.

Copper River is the prize salmon and only available for a few months of the year. Something about the cold water and tough conditions really bring out the oils of the fish or something like that. Delicious. I guess I could have mentioned that in the initial conversation but didn't think of it.

No. The pan galactic gargle blaster is quite good. The effect of drinking of those is rather like having your brains smashed out with a slice of lemon wrapped around a large gold brick.

To eat I recommend "The Reaver". Go hungry and I hope you like tater-tots.

Head to Sumner to a place called the Buttered Biscuit, and you can have this Gutbomb:

Chicken Friend steak covered with sausage gravy, sitting on a bed of eggs, biscuit and Country potatoes.

Explosion levels buildings in North Seattle

BY LEVI PULKKINEN, SEATTLEPI.COM STAFF

Updated 7:13 am, Wednesday, March 9, 2016

An apparent natural gas explosion leveled much of a commercial block and injured nine firefighters in Seattle's Greenwood neighborhood early Wednesday morning.

Two commercial buildings were heavily damaged after an apparent natural gas explosion south of Greenwood Avenue North at85th Avenue North.

Eight Seattle Fire Department firefighters and a battalion chief were injured in the blast, though not severely. The eight-man, one-woman crew was responding to a report of a gas leak in the area when the explosion occurred at 1:45 a.m.

The Mr. Gyros eatery and Neptune Coffee cafe were destroyed, as was Greenwood Quick Stop; G&O Family Cyclery appeared heavily damaged, and windows were blown out in the block surrounding the explosion.
EDIT: Here's a before-and-after shot of the area. Mr. Gyros has the yellow awning at the top, and it's one of two buildings that are now gone next to the brown-brick front.

Spoiler:

I'm surprised nobody mentioned Pike Place Chowder - easily the best Clam Chowder I've ever had!

Re: Seattle - Where to eat in 2014?

I'm in Seattle right now on vacation, I've been here since Thursday and leaving Sunday. Been to Pike Place Chowder (pretty damn good, San Fran might still be better), Toulouse Petit (gumbo and french onion soup were the best i've had, duck confit was darn good too), Biscuit Bitch (overrated based on the ratings), and Paseo (fantastic).

Up today is Tilikum Place Cafe for a late brunch and Metropolitan Grill for a fancy last dinner here.

Welcome, fu!

I've never heard of Biscuit Bitch. I guess I won't seek it out.

Haha, it came up on both Trip Advisor and Yelp, basically been following those lists.

I passed Key Arena and felt sad for you
