    I'm trying to find a nice restaurant in the Seattle area where I can drop around $50-60 for two people.

    What do you think about the Melting Pot?

    Any other recommendations?

    50-60 per person right?

    Right and Canlis looks WAY too expensive. Their food also resembles the stuff I hate about expensive and pompous restaurants.

    Listen, you want classy dining in Seattle?

    Bruno's Mexican-Italian Restaurant.

    One of the items on their menu is a Bucket of Beer in which they bring you as described.

    So God damn classy.

    Do you want to use one or two forks?

    I usually stick with one fork, unless the waiter/waitress steals it.

    What do you know about Toulouse Petit? It looks good.

    Canlis is worth every penny, even if you're too much of a scrub to appreciate it.

    Canlis is amazing, but not cheap.
    Purple is great if you want good food, but a bit cheaper (go for the appetizers/etc over the main courses imo).
    Black Bottle is also wonderful (get the boar ribs, you'll be happy you did).
    Macrina Bakery is a great bakery / place for lunch.

    a good restaurant in Seattle is the Tamarind Tree, it's amazing super-fresh Vietnamese food... anything they make is good, cheap and classy, but if you want to fill up I definitely recommend the Seven Courses of Beef.

    I moved to Issaquah recently and have been trying out restaurants here... there are a couple really great standouts:
    Saffron Cafe ( lao cuisine )on Gilman
    Szechuan Bean Flower which is at 5th Ave and Locust
    Max's World Cafe on front street (portuguese/west indian food, this is amazing stuff)

    Tonight, I had a very shitty experience in Olympia at a restaurant called Adesso.

    The appetizer came out about 20 minutes after we ordered it. For an appetizer, I'll give you 10 minutes, 15 tops. We were about 1 minute away from leaving...but then it showed up...slightly overcooked.

    A few minutes later, our main dishes arrived. Everything appeared to be satisfactory until I took a bite. My food was cold, luke warm at best. It was also bland and lacked flavor. I expected my chicken alfredo to taste relatively similar to it's name. However, it tasted somewhat sweet and with a lemon-like flavor. It was not appetizing in the slightest.

    I sent it back and they removed it from the check. I refused any replacement, but they offered us gift certificates and my girlfriend managed to wrangle a few cannolis out of the waiter.

    When the check arrived, I noticed that we were charged $5.00 for the cannolis. After bringing it to their attention, they removed them from the bill.

    It was definitely a memorable experience.

    Any Seattle restaurant suggestions for Thursday (Thanksgiving)?

    I made a reservation at Ruth's Chris Steak House, but Jak's Grill in West Seattle and Daniel's Broiler look good, too.

    I just tried to devour a 6-egg omelette at Beth's Cafe. Their all-you-can-eat hash browns are awesome, too.

    Slider, I'm genuinely curious about something.

    From what I've seen in this thread you seem to eat out way more often than I do, yet according to other posts that you've made you are unemployed, do not receive any unemployment payments, and are currently on the absolute brink of defaulting on some major debt.

    As someone that would like to eat out more often, I'm wondering if you can give me any tips on doing it as freely/cheaply as you seem able to do?

    TIA. <3

    Over the weekend, I tried a great sandwich place in Seattle called Royal Grinders: http://www.yelp.com/biz/royal-grinders-seattle-2

    It is now my favorite place if I want to grab a sandwich.

    That reminds me, isn't the Penny Arcade office somewhere in the Fremont neighborhood?

    I finally went to Canlis in May and spent around $200. It was unlike anything I have ever experienced in a restaurant environment...and the view is spectacular.

    I apologize for bringing this thread back from the dead.

    Went to Guanaco's Tacos in Capitol Hill tonight, but it looks like they closed that location.

    Fortunately, they still have a place in the U. District.
