Chef Stowell probably won't be at Union. He'll be up the hill at his new place, Anchovies and Olives. good Italian seafood.
Poppy is fun too.

I think one of Tom Douglas's places is reasonable and I like Etta's enough, but I think you would get a different opinion from most (who would vote for Palace Kitchen or Dahlia first.) I had a really good time at Lola's last year (it's been a slow year out for me.)
I recommend Spur Gastropub just because it feels so fresh and young, which might not be what you are looking for.
There are some less extensive and expensive dinners at The Corson Building these days - a different food experience.
I like Spinasse so much, but am a bit put off by how quickly that tab adds up. And the tight big tables (maybe not so packed these days.)
Have you been to Steelhead Diner in the market? There have been some mixed reviews, but overall, it's pretty nice. You might be able to call ahead and get Kevin Davis to make you a special meal - ask him for an angry crab preparation if you like to get messy and if crab is in season.
Lark? Always on my best list.
I haven't been to Art of the Table, but it gets raves from everyone I've talked to who has gone.

This am we did dine at The Georgian, a very elegant dining room and my Smoked Salmon Benedcit was perfectly prepared. I loved the apple-mango juice served at breakfast and the papaya and mango on the fruit platter was really good. Our service was top-notch, also.
Our town car driver suggested Quinn to us last night, maybe we will try them tonight. I think Cafe Campagne sounds very cool for breakfast tomorrow morning. The weather in Seattle is beautiful today! :)
