[PRIME] The Great Foodening - PAX Food Destinations 2012 now with map
Back for another year, the great food destination list. This list is not meant to be a list of the snobby foofoo only places but rather a list of places somewhat unique to the Seattle or upper Pacific NW area AND somewhat close to PAX. Unless it is REALLY awesome and unique if it is not within a reasonable no car distance to PAX it may not make the list. Yes some other places will sneak in but no McDonalds, Taco Bell, etc will not.
Distance from the WSCC is in the column marked distance. This is calculated by entering the WSCC and the eatery into Google maps. I choose the WALK option so distance by cars will be farther due to all the one way streets.
A new feature I added to the listing just before PAX last year is a link on the spreadsheet labeled "GMap" (Column heading "Show Me!") this is for those of us looking at the map on a mobile device that want to be able to get a map to the location from your current location (I was originally going to do it from the convention center but thought this was a better solution). Clicking this link will open up Google maps with a pin of the address and let you get directions.
I have tried to make it a bit easier this year to locate places by including the address and website (where available). If a place has multiple locations I have listed the closest one to PAX. A huge thanks to all of last years posters as people helping out suggesting places.
A notice to all out of towners going in large groups. Most places will charge an automatic gratuity of around 18% for groups 6 or more even if your service is subpar.
Disclaimer: I have not gone to 80% of these places they are all from users posts. If you feel a price level or description is wrong please let me know and I will adjust it.
Making suggestions and or corrections, places closed etc (and please do!!)
As people post places in the thread I will update the spreadsheet listing on Google docs with those that make sense and have enough details. PLEASE include what you think the pricing is like in the $-$$$ format if you suggest a listing. If you don't give me details chances are I will say oh sounds cool but not list it because I don't know enough about it. Please at least give the pricing and type of food. If you can include the address, website, and distance that is even more helpful. It may take me awhile to add some places but I review this thread often. Also I have seen what looks like some great suggestions but with no details so I have not been able to add them! Please provide details.
I have done my best to put the pricing in the following scale please let me know if pricing is wrong as I mostly go off what people tell me or yelp or some other review says.
$ = less than $10
$$ = $10 - $20
$$$ = > $30
$$$$ = Crazy expensive
For those wondering ignore the yellow highlights (or don't) those are places I hope to visit is all...
