“FieldTrips” is either a day trip or a few days where I visit food areas of interest which may include farm visits, producers, wineries, restaurants and/or other places that people can visit. This is about offering Vancouver Foodster readers a chance to get out of town and take a “Field Trip” for the day or a few days to explore, learn, taste and experience.
1 day, 2 day or 3 day itinerary
Field Trip to Seattle
I had Brunch/Lunch at Barrio Mexican Kitchen in the Capitol Hill neighborhood about a mile or so walk east of downtown.

1420 12th Avenue, Seattle
Checked in to our hotel at the Alexis Hotel which was located on 1st avenue at the outer edge of historic Pioneer Square and blocks away from the famous Pike Place Market.
After a little rest in the hotel, we got in the car and drove across the I-90 bridge East about a 20 minute drive to Bellevue where I had an early dinner at Lot No 3 – the restaurant has 6 beers on tap, 50-60 bottles of craft brews from around the world. I had the Lot No 3 Punch (apple, sage and lemon) to go along with my food.
Lot No 3 Bellevue
460 106th Ave NE Bellevue, WA 98004
Arriving back to the hotel, our room had 2 double beds and a chair. The room featured Italian Frette linens and luxury bath amenities.
The next day a friend drove me to the Fremont area where we visited Milstead & Co. for an Espresso Macchiato and then walked around the neighborhood.
We found our way over to The Revel for a delicious a-la-carte brunch.
