Beginning Oct. 19, Seattle area restaurants will come together to present the broadest reaching, largest dining celebration in the area: Seattle Restaurant Week. The 10-day program runs Oct.19-23 and Oct. 26-30 (Sunday-Thursday), offering three-course dinners for $30 and two-course lunches for $15.
Seattle Restaurant Week was created by Seattle and Eastside restaurants banding together to offer diners a price-conscious menu at some of the areas most respected dining establishments. Largely based on the success of other Restaurant Weeks across the country, the promotion offers value-driven menus from restaurants big and small throughout Seattle and surrounding communities.
“October is the perfect time to take advantage of dining somewhere new during Seattle Restaurant Week, or just getting an incredible deal at one of your favorite spots; fall is setting in and we naturally seek out comfort of great cooking during this season, especially with the bounty of the fall harvest”, says Chef-Owner Maria Hines of Maria Hines Restaurants. “This two-week celebration of food is also a way for us, the local restaurants, to thank diners for their ongoing support of this great promotion.”
New to the program this fall are restaurants such as Vespolina, Bell + Whete, Chiso Sushi, Szmanias, Place Pigalle and others.
A modest price increase in the Oct. program accounts for rising ingredient costs, but allows participating restaurants to produce high quality dishes that compromise nothing in portion size and creativity. Far from just date night dining, many restaurants offer kids menus that make Seattle Restaurant Week a family occasion. A list of participating restaurants and individual restaurant menus are available now at www.SeattleRestaurantWeek.com. More restaurants are added weekly.
