Pacific Northwest eaters, I need your help. My sister is in Seattle visiting our dad. I am in Portland. Sis and Dad want to meet up with Mr. Numberwang and me somewhere between for lunch this weekend. Where to go?

I am racking my brains trying to think of where we can meet them. It doesn't have to be exactly equidistant, but neither party wants to (or has the time to) drive all the way to one or the other. Likes: pub food, microbrews, cocktails, locally grown or sourced food, comfort foods, vegetarian options. Ethnic options -- Mexican, Chinese, Japanese a plus. Dislikes: chain diners (e.g. Denny's or Shari's), dive bars.
I don't know much about Washington except parts of Seattle and the I-5 corridor. Which, by the way, is not a requirement -- we are happy to go off the beaten path as long as we can make it back to the beaten path within the day.
Do you have any suggestions for specific eateries? Do you have any suggestions for how to find such places for myself? I did (an admittedly cursory) review of threads here on Ask but didn't see any that quite gave me what I wanted.
