The beginnings of a list …

Well, it turned out to be much more difficult than I thought to assemble a list of “must go” restaurants in the Seattle area.  The problem: just too much to choose from!  I spent a few hours going through the lists I talked about in an earlier post.  I also spent more time on Google.  The result is that I was completely overwhelmed.  I did put together the beginnings of a list that we can use more as a guideline than a target list:

Wild Ginger El Gaucho Le Pichet Agua Verde
Dahlia Lounge Lola Harvest Vine La Carta de Oaxaca
Canalis Daniel’s Broiler Monsoon Lampreia
Cafe Juanita Crush Volunteer Park Café Sutra
Rover’s Steelhead Diner Le Gourmand Salumi
Metropolitan Grill Cactus Salish Lodge Elliott’s Oyster House
Cafe Campagne Purple Café & Wine Bar Kingfish Café Taberna del Alabardero
Etta’s Ruth’s Chris Steak House Corson Building Palace Kitchen
Ray’s Boathouse 13 Coins Sea Garden Tavolàta
Serious Pie Flying Fish the Herbfarm Altura

These are mostly restaurants that were mentioned as top restaurants on multiple lists or were in some of the areas where we will be spending a lot of time.  For instance our new office is in the Belltown district, so I gave Belltown restaurants preference.  For the most part, however, we will simply use this list as a reference when we don’t know where to go.  We will mostly continue stopping in places that look “cool” or are recommended by people we know.

Since we are heading up to Seattle today to do a walk through on our new house and check construction progress at the new office we may actually get a chance to have a meal someplace which would give us an opportunity to write about our first experience.  We shall see …
