Pioneer Square roundup

il Corvo is awesome. Favorite restaurant in the city right now. The specials are great, and the al Inferno is really amazing.

Moving to Seattle from Cambridge, MA...where should I live?

I live on N. Cap Hill, about a 10 min walk from the Hutch. Love the neighborhood. I'm a few blocks from a grocery store, tons of restaurants (and a 10 min walk from some great ones), Summit Pub and Sun Liquor across the street, walking distance to the pike/pine bar scene, farmer's market and I live a few blocks off broadway so there is rarely any nighttime noise. Its also generally very easy to get to other neighborhoods by walking/transit (except for Ballard/Fremont). Yes, rent is expensive, but groceries are pretty much the same as the rest of Seattle (especially if you hit up Trader Joes once a week). Another option is the adjacent Central District, which is close enough to Cap. Hill to offer most of the advantages but with cheaper rents. Anyway, most of my friends who have moved away from the neighborhood wish they were back here.

You might want to check to make sure that Poppy is actually serving their normal food on Mondays. I know they were doing an Indian "pop-up" night on Mondays a few months ago.

Best Oysters at Best Price in Seattle?

Unfortunately, the oysters at Shucker's happy hour are up to $1.50 each now. Still not a bad deal though, considering the free snacks and great service.

One fun night in Seattle

Maybe Skillet.

Smith for breakfast.

Both require a short cab/bus ride to capitol hill though.

Good Food with a Good Atmosphere in Seattle?

I'd second Steelhead for the market. Great food and family friendly. Matt's in the Market is also very good and should be OK with an 8 year old who likes to chow. If you want sushi, take the 10 minute walk up to Shiro's in Belltown. Or Wasabit Bistro if you want to spend less money and get some fusiony rolls that are pretty good.

Seattle Trip Report

Stopped reading after the -1 on szechuan crab and the +1 on the paseo sandwich. Unless both places have gone massively downhill recently (or maybe you got a bad crab?), I think you're just kind of entirely missing the point of these dishes.
