Seattle - Where to eat in 2014?

I'm going to be in Seattle for four days. I don't want to eat at Jack in the Box every day (it's right next to my hotel).

I'm aiming for about $50 or $60 (or less!) per meal for me, the wife, and the 1-year-old (who will really just eat bits from our plates)

So, Seattleans (Seattlites? WTF do you call yourselves?) or people who have also visited Seattle... where should I eat? We're driving our own car around, so it doesn't have to be restricted to any particular area. I added the year to the title because, although there are surely threads about this from the distant past, I was hoping for more up-to-date suggestions.

GO!
(and thanks!)

Also, we're already planning a stop at Twede's Cafe in North Bend.

You drive to Yakima and go to Miner's.

I was there for work a couple of weeks ago and ate at Slim's Last Chance. It was really good chili. Not sure about taking a 1 year old though.

Wouldn't hurt to provide your location just to give people some frame of reference to start thinking. Also, construction is going on everywhere so traffic can be havoc at any random location.

I like to take out-of-towners to Chinook's at Fishermen's Termninal. Good food, reasonable prices, plenty of ambiance, and good for kids. They have good breakfast (weekends only), though I slightly prefer Original Pancake House for that (served all week).

Re: Seattle - Where to eat in 2014?

We're staying at the Travelodge on Aurora & 85th, north of downtown. Like I said, we'll have our own car, and we're there for four days, so we don't mind driving around or getting stuck in traffic.

Good suggestions so far.

Re: Seattle - Where to eat in 2014?

There is a lot of Asian restaurants here so if you like Vietnamese, Teriaky or Thai places there is tons to chose from. And I hardly been disappointed by one

Mediterranean Kitchen in Bellevue.
http://www.yelp.com/biz/mediterranean-kitchen-bellevue
The plates are around $15 but they are huge as in it easily feeds two people

Tutta Bella in Seattle.
http://www.yelp.com/biz/tutta-bella-...ria-seattle-10
Its a chain but its really good pizza and they have several locations here in Seattle

Seastar Restaurant & Raw Bar in Bellevue
http://www.yelp.com/biz/seastar-rest...w-bar-bellevue
They have a location in Seattle too, its a little expensive but its pretty good

8oz Burger & Co in Seattle
http://www.yelp.com/biz/8oz-burger-and-co-seattle
Haven't been here yet but its supposed to be the best burgers in Seattle. Personally I like the taste of cheap greasy burgers so "Dicks" http://www.yelp.com/biz/dicks-drive-in-seattle-2
or "E J Burger" http://www.yelp.com/biz/ej-burger-seattle are my faves

Thai Tom
http://www.yelp.com/biz/thai-tom-seattle
Haven't tried this one myself but again supposedly the best Thai food in Seattle

Tropicos Breeze
http://www.yelp.com/biz/tropicos-breeze-seattle

And Mr Gyro which is supposed to be a great Gyro place but have yet to try it
http://www.yelp.com/biz/mr-gyros-seattle

You're actually in my vicinity, so Original Pancake House is only a mile or two away, meaning two hours during construction.

Red Mill Burgers is pretty close, as is Gordito's (tasty and huge Mexican fare).

If you're in the mood for a big breakfast, Beth's cafe is pretty legendary. It's just down the street...
http://www.bethscafe.com

Been to Duke's Chowder once as well, you can't really go wrong with any of the places around Green Lake I think.

It's cliche but the Tom Douglas restaurants are pretty solid. I went to Palace Kitchen last time I was there and enjoyed the hell out of it.

I thought about mentioning Douglas but then thought it was too cliché. But I've never had a bad meal there. A bunch are downtown and in South Lake Union.

Purple is a good trendy restaurant downtown, and Toulouse Petit has a good Cajun brunch (caveat: I've never been to New Orleans).

Re: Seattle - Where to eat in 2014?

All awesome suggestions so far. I've already flagged a few as "must try" and a few as "see what the wife thinks..."

Side question: Any suggestions for places that would specifically have crawfish etouffee? I had some in Texas last week, and I'd love to get my wife try it, too.

I've never been, but this place IS called "the Crawfish House."

Re: Seattle - Where to eat in 2014?

Sushi suggestions?

In 2007, we went to a place in Fremont. Blue Plate or something like that. I'd like to try another place if possible.

Thanks again for the suggestions. Keep 'em coming. Except kenbuzz. Starbucks?

I'm by no means a Sushi expert but
Umi Sake House is the best I tried in Seattle

edit: ok I was beaten by ThOr but another vote for Umi

That was probably Blue C. I never eat sushi so I'll defer to those who already weighed in.
