You’re going to be tempted by the wine-tasting stands at Pike Place Market, but do you really want to sample Columbia Valley reds while crowds looking for Chukar Cherries bump into you with their oversized backpacks? Le Pichet is the sister spot to Cafe Presse, one of our favorite places for French food. Get a bottle of champagne and some charcuterie, and if you’re still hungry, order the roasted chicken that takes an hour to prepare. Better order more wine while you wait.
