Field Trip to Seattle – Day 3

“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

Day 3 my visit to Seattle continued from Day 1 and Day 2

I had Brunch/Lunch at Barrio Mexican Kitchen in the Capitol Hill neighborhood about a mile or so walk east of downtown.

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.
