Hi, WSers! 

 

Okay, so every year, I entertain my 30 best clients one night at

an annual conference that, this year, is in Seattle. I am completely
unfamiliar with the dining scene in Seattle, but I am
very excited, as I always hear great things about your the food
scene.  Also, I know we have a lot of 'natives' there on here...  :)

 

The goal of the evening every year is amazing food, a great
atmosphere, and a chance to NOT talk business for a night. This is the
8th year running now, and we've had some pretty amazing experiences at
the following places:

 

Araka- St. Louis
Restaurant August- New Orleans
The Carlyle- Portland
Kevin Taylor- Denver
Restaurant 1789- Washington DC
J.G. Domestic- Philadelphia
Locke-Ober- Boston

 

All great experiences, wonderful places to dine (I highly recommend each of them, if ever you find yourself in those towns).

I am looking to duplicate/improve upon those for this year- My goal is a wonderful night, with great food.

 

Budget (cut a bit this year- darn recession!): $100 a person
# of attendees: 25-30
Private Dining space/room: Highly desired.
Location: Prefer near the Convention Center, but willing to cab it if a reasonable distance.

 

If the venue has a great local story/flair to it, all the better. Many of
the attendees are (actual) historians, so a bonus there.

 

Looking for suggestions and help.  Also, I'd love to meet up with anyone in town the weekend of the 13th, if you're around.

Icon Grill.  The photos on their site don't do it justice.  The lighting in this place would make Andy Dick look good.  The food is great, the deserts are embarrassingly awesome.  Ask the Vilyans and Bluewolf Pete.  Four or five blocks from the convention center.

 

Palace Kitchen. One of Seattle celebrity chef, Tom Douglas', dozen or so restaurants. A block away from the Icon.  Apple-wood fired grill. Butter-poached morels. Seriously.

 

Local 360. Seattleites are nothing if not rabid locovores.  This place makes awesome food, primarily sourced within—as you might guess—a 360-mile radius.  They stock all the local booze.  :poke:

 

 

13th of when?
