It doesn't get much better. The Avenue (University Avenue) is hopping with cuisine from all over the world, with a heavy emphasis on Asian cuisine, but definitely not limited to that. The Avenue has everything from Italian, to Chinese, to Thai, to Greek, and plenty of places cater to (empty) college wallets. There are plenty of late-night and combo deals available, and most of the menus are cheap to begin with. Honestly, a four-star restaurant probably wouldn't do so well on the Avenue. University Village is a little more upscale, but offers plenty of tasty eateries that herd in students. Several adjacent neighborhoods offer even more diverse food options, and downtown has a lot of good places, too. Seattle pleases in the food department. Students rave about the options, the quality, and the prices.
Most students won't experience even a fraction of the potential of Seattle's food culture. Seattle has a large Asian population, and the restaurants definitely reflect that, with a plethora of authentic Chinese, Japanese, and other Asian cuisine. There are a lot of good Mexican places, like Chipotle on the Avenue, which is famous for burritos. You could probably go to a different restaurant every night in the Seattle and the surrounding area, and not repeat for a year. It's definitely worthwhile to get acquainted with the colorful palette of Seattle restaurants.
