BlogHer Food is in Seattle this year and like a good research librarian I gathered lists and articles that will lead me to good local eats.
A Few BlogHer Food Speakers Dish On Their Favorite Seattle Food Spots : From the BlogHer Foodies themselves.
A number of articles caught my eye over at Sunset Magazine:

Let me know if you have any Seattle favorites.
This year we started getting a farm box and have enjoyed trying a number of fruits and veggies that were new to me. My fava bean post was a featured post on BlogHer (quite a thrill for me). And I no longer fear the butternut squash. I also wrapped turnips in bacon, and found a great way to make a flavorful stir fry.
The farm box will continue this year, but less frequently. Even the small box is a bit too much for just us two. We’re now getting a box every other week instead of every week and still have more than enough and a freezer full of prepped vegetables.
Eating out in 2011 was the year of the breakfast. A highlight was a re-visit to Pt. Hudson Cafe and their stellar bacon cheddar waffles. I chased the chicken and waffle craze to the Front Porch in San Francisco and have hopes to get to 900 Grayson in Berkeley sometime soon. In San Diego I developed an obscene love for the peanut butter and banana stuffed french toast at Cafe 222. I still think it is possibly a perfect meal: Peanut butter + Banana all melted and gooey between egg soaked toasted bread – you’ve got your protein and fruit and grains, right? Perfect.
Fall off the bone tender and juicy, best roast chicken I’ve ever tasted.
Then we had churros for dessert. The sauce was dark espresso chocolate and so very rich.
Mandaloun Restaurant is in Redwood City, CA and I’ll be making many more visits.
