During PAX, we eat a lot of meals downtown. But it's important to avoid close (and hence crowded) options like The Cheesecake Factory or (the delicious) La Creperie Voila. Here are some good alternatives:
- Jimmy Johns: Fast, cheap and tasty sandwiches. 6th and Union, inside City Center.
- The Pike Pub: It's all the way down on 1st and Pike, but it's nice to get out of the crowds and has great happy hour deals.
- Blue Water Taco Grill: Coastal Mexican Food at 6th and Union.
- Specialties: Fabulous sandwiches and salads, and the best cookies you can buy in Seattle. 5th and Union.
- Dragonfish: Nice cocktails and tasty sushi, but a tad spendy. 8th and Pine.
- Von's RoastHouse: Tasty roasted meats, and reasonably priced. 7th and Pine.
Pro tip: It looks like this year's "Main Theater" will be the Paramount (Scroll down to "Sunday, August 28th") on 9th and Pine. The Paramount Theater's seating capacity is 2,807, which is a little bigger than the 2,500 available at 2010's Benaroya Hall.
