so we are big foodies here in seattle… here are some places that i have been to that are worth checking out. it depends on how much you want to spend and what kind of food you like…
Serious Pie – has AWESOME flatbread pizzas
Lark – you can order several plates. somewhat like tapas in that they come out in sharing sizes.
Cantinetta – SO good, and decently priced for a great meal
Volterra – awesome Italian food with homemade pasta. Fantastic dinner and YUMMY brunch
Tavalatta – also awesome Italian food
How to Cook a Wolf – haven’t been here, but is supposed to be awesome.
areas to check out:
Capitol Hill (if you’re more of the hipster crowd. it’s like Williamsburg Brooklyn in NYC)
Ballard (used to be a fishing town, getting gentrified, but it’s really cute) You can also see the fishing boats like in "Deadliest Catch" Has a fun Farmer’s Market on Sundays
West Seattle (Alki Beach)
Golden Gardens Park/Beach – the closest thing we have to the fine sand beaches of California
Discovery Park – Seattle’s version of Central Park. Has great hiking trails
Wallingford (has the best cupcake place called TROPHY (they’re doing my wedding cupcakes))
Seattle Center – Has the Space Needle, Children’s Museum, Experience Music Project Museum, Science Fiction Museum,Pacific Science Center
Make sure you enjoy the Washington Islands like Bainbridge Island, Mercer Island, Orcas Island, Lummey Island. You take a ferry ride there, but they’re fun for a day trip. Orcas is supposed to be great!
Vancouver is a little drive north
Hope this helps some!
