ALA Midwinter: Not the Cheesecake Factory – Walkable Eats

Do you consider yourself a foodie?’  Then you probably will want to skip the Cheesecake Factory and try out some of these unique Seattle spots for enjoyable conference eats:

  • Blue C Sushi – 1510 7th Ave – quick, yummy, close to convention center
  • Taylor Shellfish Farms– 1521 Melrose Ave – awesome oyster bar, get fresh local seafood and wine
  • Le Pichet – 1933 1st Ave – delightful French food – if you aren’t hungry, just get the chocolat chaud, it is to die for.
  • Ristorante Machiavelli – 1215 Pine St – great Italian place, a relatively short uphill walk from the convention center
  • Alibi Room – 85 Pike St (in Post Alley) – a lovely hide-away, perfect break from tourist crowds at the Pike Place Market.
