One night in Seattle: Black Bottle, Palace Kitchen, Purple Cafe Wine Bar, or ?

As always, the replies continue to be quite helpful! Looks like Palace Kitchen is a definite for one night...still deciding on night number two. Crush sounds quite interesting too with some further searching, but the opinions of chowhounds seem mixed? Thoughts?

Hmmm..good to know!...looks like we might now be turning it into two nights out...so if one night is the Palace Kitchen, the other night we are looking at Matt's, Crush, or..strictly for the summer patio..the Pink Door...any thoughts?

Hi everyone...my wife and I always enjoy eating out in Seattle in our visits down from Vancouver. We will be there next week and are looking to try somewhere we haven't been. We're looking for a not too quiet atmosphere but good food and wines by the glass. In my searches, I have come across Black Bottle, Palace Kitchen, and the Purple Cafe Wine Bar. Any thoughts on these anyone? Of course, I also saw the three course menu for Cascadia as well, but it doesn't seem a favourite on this board?
Thanks in advance for your advice everyone!
cheers,

One Night Stand in Toronto: Vancouver Foodie looking for a fun but great restaurant

Hey there everyone...I'll be in Toronto for two nights with a buddy of mine for an annual get together. We will be staying at the Delta Chelsea. One night we are off to Spamalot so I'm not too worried about dinner that night, but the next night I would love to find a great restaurant but with a great atmosphere that will allow us to hang out there for awhile. Looking for a modern vibe, good buzz in the room,nothing too quiet, with great wines by the glass and cocktails. Food wise would love to find something tapas style but not tied to that...not looking to necessarily break the bank but also not afraid to pay a little extra for good food and atmosphere. As for likes and dislikes (I feel like I'm on a dating service now) and what I'm looking for..in Vancouver, I love eating out at Chambar, Nu, Parkside, Cioppino's,and Bin 942 for food and atmosphere..in New York, loved my dinners at Spice Market, Balthazzar, and Nobu if that helps. Any suggestions anyone?
So far in my research I have thought of Jamie Kennedy Wine Bar and Lee.
cheers,
CC
