300 “Dinner for Two” Giveaways for Seattle Restaurant Week’s Return — April 7th-18th

Record Number of Restaurants, Free Dinners for Two, Grand Prize Award

Seattle Restaurant Week (SRW) is returning April 7-11 and April 14-18 with more restaurant participants than ever before. The area’s largest restaurant promotion has grown to 163 restaurants offering three-course dinners for $28 across King County. Diners will also reap the benefits of approximately 300 surprise giveaways with participating restaurants giving away dinners for two during the ten day promotion. A grand prize drawing of a five-course dinner from the restaurants of SRW board members will also be awarded.

Seattle Restaurant Week’s first promotion four years ago had fewer than 100 participants. It has continued to grow with the support of restaurants and the dining public and this spring, it has created an opportunity for the restaurants to thank the diners for their support and patronage with complimentary dinners for two. For each of the ten days of the promotion, approximately 30 restaurants will randomly select two lucky guests for free SRW dinners. The participating restaurants will perform the giveaway twice during the promotion, totaling approximately 300 dinners for two given away for free (excluding beverage, tax and gratuity).

The dinner for two giveaways are in addition to the many gift certificate giveaways given away on the SRW website and through social media outlets. In addition, the SRW board will give away a grand prize of a five-course dinner for eight, with each course prepared by a board member restaurant chef and a paired bottle of wine from the chef’s cellar. All entrants of SRW giveaways and contests will be automatically entered to win the grand prize. The board member restaurants include John Howie Restaurants (John Howie Steaks, Seastar, Sport), Maria Hines Restaurants (Agrodolce, Golden Beetle, Tilth), Nell’s Restaruant, Rover’s, and Tom Douglas Restaurants (Brave Horse Tavern, Cuoco, Dahlia Lounge, Etta’s, Lola, Palace Kitchen, Seatown, Serious Pie).
