Bookstores, coffee shops, the gorgeous library, John Irving at Town Hall, Pike Place Market, bicycle rides, ferry rides, and food food food. That was the Seattle itinerary. Yesterday's post provided a few snapshots of some of the street snacks sampled during our trip. Today it's mostly a look at a few really fine restaurants: Revel, Sitka & Spruce, and The Walrus & The Carpenter.

Husband/wife chef-owners Rachel Yang and Seif Chirchi met while cooking at New York's Alain Ducasse at the Essex House. Rachel brings influences from her Korean heritage; Seif contributes an American farm-to-table sensibility. The industrial space features a large butcher block chefs table -- behind which sous chef Mike is getting set to release our salad:

Revel's cuisine was clean, creative, luscious. We started with sturdy dumplings filled with chick pea, kale, roasted cauliflower, mustard yogurt and parsley ($9) and then had a salad of hearts of palm, spinach, black lentil, smoked peanut, and miso vinaigrette ($8):

Homemade seaweed noodles with dungeness crab, spicy red curry broth, and créme fraiche: arguably the single most delicious plate (bowl) of food we ate in Seattle ($16 -- the most expensive dish on the regular menu!):
