SEAReview

Market Grill has a dining situation that sounds unbearable—but in reality, this place does one of the best lunches downtown. First, you have to walk through a good portion of Pike Place’s human traffic jam (which usually starts because one person is blocking the way trying to dip a popsicle stick in some wild honey sample). Eventually, you’ll find what you’re looking for—a diner-style counter smack in the middle of the market, where two guys are there to fire up your blackened salmon sandwich with rosemary mayo (which is what you should get). If you’re alone, it’s not too hard to grab a seat, but if you’re with a few people, take it to-go. Don’t miss a side of herby clam chowder, either.
