Pacific Northwest Trip Itineraries

Your First Time in Seattle

Destination(s): Seattle

Seattle is the type of city where snowboarders drink green tea alongside attorneys at the local Japanese sushi bar. The diverse climate of Seattle leads to an energized city that leads the nation in technology, artistic, retail and industrial enterprises. The city's metropolitan delights are framed by the Olympic Mountains, Elliot Bay and Lake Washington. Strong cultural influences include Asian, Scandinavian, Native and Latin communities. read more about Your First Time in Seattle

Many foodies actually plan their vacations to Seattle primarily to visit The Herbfarm.  Located in semi-rural Woodinville, the restauran's nine-course dinner takes at least four hours and includes five Pacific Northwest wines.  The chefs warmly explain the courses to the guests and gladly create alternative entrees for those with special dietary needs.   A tour of the restaurant's herb and vegetable garden is offered before the seating. A variety of dietary needs can be accomodated without hassle or compromise; for example, the non-alchohlic selections are creations to themselves with fresh botanical beverages rivalring the standard wine selections.

Nordic Heritage Museum

Nordic Heritage Museum

Located in Ballard, the Nordic Heritage Museum features art and artifacts from Scandinavian immigrants. The "Dream of America" exhibit on the first floor tells a story through dioramas that begin in 19th century Scandinavia and move through the Atlantic crossing, Ellis Island, New York, Midwest expansion and eventual arrival into the Pacific Northwest. Two galleries are featured on the second floor and focus on the logging and fishing industries, along with folk costumes, tools and furniture.

The third floor houses a gallery for each of the five Nordic countries: Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. Each July, this museum hosts the Tivoli/Viking Days festival, where visitors can chow down on Nordic foods. The Gordon Ekvall Tracie Music Library is also located at the museum; a research archive for those interested in traditional Nordic music and dance, it is home to hundreds of records, audio tapes, CDs, films, slides, photos, texts and other valuable out-of-print information.

One of the historically frustrating things about the Seattle dining scene is the lack of Cajun and Creole food restaurants.  The opening of Toulouse Petit delightfully addresses that.  The restaurant's tall windows and intimate interior are modeled after the famous restaurants in New Orleans, but enough about the exquisite decorating.  Toulouse Petit is truly about the rich, amazing food.   Breakfast at Toulouse Petit is modeled after the traditional New Orleans-style brunch, with classic dishes like Eggs Sardou and Eggs Hussarde as well as other Eggs Benedict preparations and classic French-style omelets prominently featured.  The lunch menu focuses on classic New Orleans fare, such as Fried Oyster, Fried Gulf Shrimp and Blackened Redfish Po' Boys, Fried Chicken Gumbo and Spicy Jambalaya.  Dinnertime brings some hearty N'awlins fare inckluding Oysters Rockerfeller and Crawfish Etoufee.  Mimosas, Brandy Milk Punch, Creole Bloody Mary, Ramos Gin Fizz and other New Orleans-derived cocktails are offered.  The best cocktail, hands down, is the Hurricane.

Each course is themed with the show plot, which changes every three months.  Presented in the round, the show unfolds above and alongside the diners. Menu selections are exquisite yet accessible, and include entrees such as the mushroom strata with artisan cheese in savory custard.   The show and menu change every three months, but there is always improv comedy, vaudeville revue, music, dance, circus arts and sensuality.  Some of the entertainers have worked with Cirque du Soleil.  Although there is no nudity in the shows some of the humor is adult-themed, so this show might not be appropriate for families with young children. read more about Teatro ZinZani
