Forks and knives have been very good to me over the years but some days hearty meats and cheeses tucked into bread are just what I'm craving. And here is where I go to get my sandwich fix.
Scallops, halibut, lamb, pork belly banh mi, nothing seems to be outside this lovely room's specialty. Monday - Friday happy hour 5 p.m. - 7 p.m. offers a peekabo view.
No frills, just a formica countertop and a dozen stools at this market stand. Get the meatball sandwich (big enough to share) with housemade alfedo & marinara.

Pool, pinball and karaoke (Fri-Sat) seal the deal.
This is a great place to fuel up on everything from a burger to eggs benedict before perusing the Pike Place Market stands.

Get here now. Armando Batali (father of Mario) offers up quality charcuterie and sandwiches to eat in or takeaway. Ask about their private luncheons.
The short ribs and the sloppy joe shine at this extremely lively Cap Hill gastropub. They take their burgers and beer very seriously here as well.

Power lunches and special occasions are what built their reputation but I go for the remarkably well-priced happy hour. Order the bacon truffle deviled eggs, a burger or the steak frites. You can thank me later.

Tucked into the heart of the Central District 'the pit' is crowd pleasing enough that they often run out of slabs before official closing time, so arrive early if you have your heart set on ribs. The soul soundtrack, vintage posters, pulled pork, sauteed greens, sweet potato pie and grape shasta also make a visit well worth the trip. Outdoor seating is a bonus!
