Going to a Chefs Move to Schools seminar next month in the land of Grunge and coffee. I have no idea about anything as I've never been to the Pacific Northwest. Any recs are welcomed. I'll be there for basically two full days.

Dan,

Haven't been myself, but thought you might enjoy this article from the NY Times: http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.h ... A9679D8B63

When I travel, I always check the Times Travel section first to see their / their readers suggestions on what to eat and where to visit.

Have a great trip!

I love Seattle, it has a special place in my heart (Mary and I were married there), and if it wasn't almost as cloudy as Louisville but with all the cloudy days put together in a months-long string, I could live there. We haven't been back for a while, though, so specific recommendations are iffy.

Some things don't change, though:

* Be sure to stroll around the Pike Place Market, and just wish Louisville could have something like that.

* Bai Tong Thai may be the best Thai restaurant I've ever eaten in. It was founded by Thai Air people with the idea of serving Thai Air crews on layovers on Bangkok-Seattle flights. Bad news is that it's out near Sea-Tac. But you might be able to work out a lunch on your way in or out. Actually it would be worth the drive anyway.

* Wild Ginger used to be a highly trendy (and excellent) pan-Asian fusion joint and still may be, but I haven't dined there since the '90s, so check around first.

Again, I can't testify that it's still good, but I sure hope it is!

Seattle just completed a train that will take you downtown from the airport. You can't go wrong choosing any restaurant that is run by Tom Douglas. Etta's is located in Pike Place Market. Serious Pie is up a couple of blocks. Robin's suggested Wild Ginger. The original restaurant (which I think was the best) has now moved closer to the symphony hall. Somehow it just lost the magic.

If I was headed home this would be the first place I would hit. It is located across the lake in Bellevue and is considered the Eastside. This is home turf to all the techie millionaires. Bellevue is something to see. The restaurant is located in Lincoln Square which has one of the most amazing bowling alleys.
