Serious Eats: Talk
A friend and I will be in town for a couple of days at the beginning of May connected to a show at the Paramount Theatre. We'll be staying downtown (a couple blocks from the Paramount), we won't have a car, and we may be a little pressed for time due to curtain times.
Dinner Saturday evening before an 8 pm curtain
Breakfast/lunch (maybe brunch) Sunday (options for both helpful as we intend to get up early and explore a bit)
Dinner Sunday (no timeframe)
Breakfast Monday before going to the airport for an 11:45 flight out.
The twist in all this is that my friend is diabetic (type 1), so as much as I appreciate coffee shop pastries to start my morning, breakfast for her really needs to be protein-based (eggs, sausages, something v. low carb).
My priority is to go to Pike Place Market, look around, and eat fish (since I am too polite to eat all the loads of carbs I want in front of her). Her priority is to get a look at the central library.
How do I best make this work to keep her fed appropriately for breakfast without breaking the bank or running all over town? Where should we eat tasty fish without spending more than $25 a person on entrees? If she wanted to use some carb points for something exciting, what sweets cannot be missed at Pike Place Market?
Thanks for any direction you guys can give! It's the breakfast thing that has me thrown off most. In London, there's greasy cafs all over that have us covered; in NY, there are diners everywhere. Seattle? That's a new world.
