Day 1 - Seattle


Too bad that you only have one day but since you're here there are several things you should definitely check out. Plea*e come hungry because the food in Seattle is some of the best in the country so start your morning at Cafe Campagne in Pike Place Market then peruse the Market for edibles to bring home. Pick up some white truffle oil or truffle butter from La Buona Tavola, just next door you’ll find gourmet herbed vinegars at Sotto Voce. De Laurenti carries hundreds of specialty artesian cheeses and many of them will fare just fine in your hotel fridge until you can get them home. The Pecorinos and Parmesans will la*t for a month or more so stock up and throw a ta*ting party when you get home. They also carry an extensive selection of imported meats so you may want to pick up some salami or prosciutto. You can find homemade huckleberry jam and fireweed honey on the main floor of the market which make perfect gifts for friends and family and are absolute musts for any well-stocked pantry. Definitely check out Market Spice Tea where you can find an extensive tea selection, perfect herbs de province and Tellicherry black pepper corns which are va*tly superior to regular pepper. You can even arrange to have salmon or halibut shipped home after watching the fishmongers toss fish around at Pike Place Fish Co. Get lunch at Matt's in the Market, you should get a reservation early or if you can't get in, try Place Pigale, Maximielion or Steelhead Diner, or head up the hill to the Wild Ginger for fanta*tic Pan A*ian. After lunch you are obligated to see the Space Needle so jump on the monorail from Westlake Center to the Seattle Center, make a reservation so you won't be charged for the elevator fee and then enjoy an appetizer and a drink in the rotating dining room and take in some of the best views in the city. Now that you've done the requisite visit to the Space Needle you can get on to the rest of your day. If you have time see the Seattle Art Museum and the Olympic Sculpture Park, but a* important a* they are, the real gem is the Frye Art Museum on First Hill. After the Frye stop in at Lark, put your name in and then go next door to Licorous for a perfectly matched c***tail small plate pairing. After dinner head over to the Hideout for a martini and then snuggle into the perfect linens at the Sorrento Hotel.
