Seattle Restaurant for a graduation luncheon?

Collections café at the Chihuly Garden might work for you. They do have a room for private events

Sattle for a week from Australia

If you want to do a cooking class I recommend signing up for the e-mail list from the Pantry (or check regularly) as they offer some great classes, but they fill quickly.

Legitimate Poutine

The Burgundian might well fit your bill. The herbs may kick it, but it is really basically straight.

New and notable special occasion restaurant

Six/Seven in the Edgewater is nice and has a great view and good food and always does well for special occasions.

Poppy could also be nice. It can get a little loud, but their food is wonderful and they are good at service as well.

Upscale Lunch Tasting Menu in Seattle

Blueacre has a version of one
It is three courses for $20 that you can choose from a couple of things. Not exactly what you had in mind, but it is good.

Seatac to Olympia

Ranch House BBQ is about 20 miles and is open on Sunday and is good if you like BBQ/Dives/Rustic as you mentioned

Blueacre caters both East and West Coast styles

Downtown vegan

You could try the newish Veggie Grill on 4th. It is very close to the hall and is pretty good - casual, but might be worth checking out.

Redmond area after Odysseo

If it is for after a Saturday day showing then the Pomegranate Bistro would work well (not open for dinner on Sundays)

Birthday for teen restaurant

Lunchbox Lab - they even have a rumpus room.

Seattle or Bellevue SeaStar?

Yes. Seattle. Location is prettier and it is in Seattle not Bellevue, and the staff is better. Not much better - just better. Also it is a little quieter. Bellevue's gets rather loud. But both are good.

'tis the season for a King salmon BBQ

You could try Tim's in Parkplace in Kirkland.

They are usually very good.

recruiting dinner

I know there are some people on the board who do not like it, but honestly for your needs I think SeaStar would work very well. It looks great, the food is good, and service has always been wonderful. Noise has never been an issue for us there and if you let them know in advance when you book they can be sure to put you in a quiet spot.

Recommendations for group brunch/lunch reservations in Seattle

Terra Plata would be good - especially if you could get a reservation for the rooftop area. It should be a great day for it.

Please help a sad girl find some Mexican food in Seattle

Fogon is also good. They make their own corn tortillas and have great service and a nice décor. Really good food as well.

Seattle seems to be lacking good Breakfast Burritos...

Actually Brave Horse Tavern has a very nice one.

King Crab?

Hoping to plan a weekend trip up to Vancouver/Richmond to do the king crab at a local Chinese establishment. Any word on when the season/specials are going to start? Hoping to book my hotel somewhat in advance, but want to make sure that I do not miss out this year.

Also any recommendations on who has the best crab? Will be staying at the Pacific Rim, but will have a car. Thanks

Eating on Christmas, not Christmasy

Blueacre will be open on Christmas eve and they have great seafood and are not doing anything really special for Christmas Eve

Many of the area's local Chinese establishments will be open on both Christmas Eve and Christmas day.

Café Presse is also open Christmas Eve and would be a fun choice

Blueacre has Cioppino and also has good shellfish. It is downtown and not too bad to get to from the Marriott.

quick lunch near the convention center?

Blueacre is a good choice. Some other ideas are to walk up the hill to Melrose Market where you can grab an excellent sandwich at Homegrown or go to Taylor's Shellfish and have them shuck you some oysters at their small bar and grab some chowder.
You can also get a good quick lunch at Wild Rye right in the convention center or the crepe place right on Pike outside the convention center.
