You didn't mention where you'd be staying. I had a super interesting meal at Miller's Guild http://millersguild.com/a couple of weeks back. Sat a the big butcher block counter and watched the team work, really work, over the wood fire grill. Here are some other links.

Matt's in the Market, The Pink Door, Steelhead Diner. Dahlia Lounge and Wild Ginger are a short walk away.

Not much for me to add beyond the previous threads.. .. Le Pichet, Cafe Campagne, Lecosho are all good. Capital Hill: Spinasse, Lark, Altura. Fremont/Ballard/Wallingford: Walrus and the Carpenter, The Whale Wins, Tilth..

I'm looking for suggestions for something downtown (or close). We are staying at the W Hotel & it will be my wife and our two kids, aged 10 and 12. I'm interested in Italian/pasta & Spinasse clearly looks great, but I'd love something that's a bit less expensive.

Cantinetta is not particularly convenient to downtown, but Gasworks is a cool park and could be a nice chance to see a more residential part of town.

We have been going to the Pink Door for 25 years and it is a funky and unfussy Italian restaurant. Perfect for family. Sit on the patio and look out over the water and enjoy.

RN-74 for the wine list.

Pink Door is nice and a family favorite, but I'd only go if the weather is nice or you're catching a show. To be clear, it's much more about the Seattle experience than it is the food.

If you're in the market and like bourbon, swing by one of my favorite places, Radiator Whiskey. Quintessential Seattle experience - in the market, up a rickety flight of stairs, hipster comfort food, GREAT bourbon-based cocktails, overlooking ShowGirls. Can't beat it for "seattle" and was there again last week to pre-party for the Chris Cornell concert.

Terra Plata is great (Melrose Market, so a schlep) for tapas and you can wander around Capital Hill, as well. Paseo is closed.

If you have a car, Café Juanita. Winning.

Spinasse is amazing.
Pink door I thought had very average food - like diner quality Italian. But like some say, there's more to it than just food

Cafe Juanita is amazing but u need to drive
I like walrus and carpenter but it's a wait (no reso)

The bone marrow at rn74 is pretty yummy

Stopped at Un Bien the other day for the pork shoulder, it was very good. Maybe a little better than I remember Paseo, and maybe slightly less sloppy too. But then I rarely went to the Fremont Paseo, maybe 2x. The Ballard Paseo on Seaview (short walk from my house) remains closed.

Funny you should ask. We're moving and wrestling over fancy (Café Juanita) or casual gastropub (Bell and Whete).

We sat at the bar at Siska and Spruce. You can buy some apps by the ounce. We liked it but it is a foodie restaurant. Etta near Pikes Market was excellent-great seafood.

I am not familiar with Din Tai Fung (though have heard good things). Sushi Kashiba was fantastic (though pricey). Matt's is also excellent. I would put Le Pichet and Cafe Campagne as also excellent, but not fancy amazing meals like you will get at Sushi Kashiba and Matts. I can't think of anything else to highly recommend that is near the market other than these already listed.

Din Tai Fung is a Taiwanese chain that specializes in soup dumplings. It's good, but not very Seattle. It's also in a shopping mall. Second Matt's, Sushi Kashiba and Le Pichet. All are very good and very close. Lecosho, owned by the original Matt, is also good.

For seafood, especially oysters, Elliott's is surprisingly good. Wine list is crappy and it's touristy, but they get first rate seafood. On the Waterfront, too. If you wander down to Pioneer Square, Taylor Shellfish has a spot. Nirmal's is good Indian. London Plane is also very good.

I'm usually pretty closely aligned with Scott's advice, but have to agree with this comment, having had DTF on multiple continents ;) There is zero chance I'd go to Bellevue for DTF, given all of the option in Seattle. I'd much sooner catch a cab to hit Café Juanita, which has never ceased to amaze me. Will be back in Nov and provide an update. First stop will be my favorite place with a view of Showgirls ;)

I was going to recommend Nell's, but it's in Greenlake and not very near Pike Place Market. For consistency, any one of Tom Douglas' restaurants are very good (my favorites are Palace Kitchen, Lola, and Dahlia Lounge). All are pretty close to PPM.

In the wake of the wine country fires, I feel somewhat guilty posting this restaurant review. That said, Spinasse was a home run—an all timer. Two mini pasta dishes were each more than memorable. The beef cheeks entre over a celery purée was so good I could have easily ordered and eaten 3 more. Whoever steered me in that direction, my hat’s off to you

Going to be in Seattle in 2 weeks. Looking for some casual lunch places for a Thurs and Friday. Would like something unique to Seattle (or the coast), but food quality is more important. Also, will be dining solo.

If your priority is food over ambiance, I don't think there's a much better lunch spot than Il Corvo: http://ilcorvopasta.com/ . They do 3 different homemade pastas every day, plus some other random stuff. The pasta is incredible every time, in my experience.

The downside is that it's a pretty small space, and is a little too popular for its own good. I hear that these days the wait can be around 45 minutes, depending on when you go. It won't give you the view of a location around Pike Place, either.

Let me throw some other things out that might be of interest. (And I encourage others in the area to comment, as I have not been to many of these in a while). I assume you are coming from Minnesota? If so, then perhaps you want local seafood?

Matt's in the Market is thus a good bet.

Brooklyn Oyster House is a good place for oysters.

If you want really great Vietnamese food in a hip setting, Ba Bar (in Capitol Hill, so depends on where you are staying).
