Starting this fall, Dine Around Seattle is overhauling the “appetizer, entree, dessert” format that has defined fixed-price promotions in Seattle for more than 15 years. From November 6th through 23rd, Sundays through Thursdays, participating Dine Around Seattle restaurants will be offering fixed-price menus at $22, $33, or $44. Menus will feature the best creations from Seattle’s most talented chefs and bartenders, including craft cocktails, small plates, wine flights, shared plates, entrees, desserts, and more.
By offering a range of price points, Dine Around Seattle creates a new opportunity for more residents and local food lovers to discover a wider range of Seattle’s unique local restaurants and bars. Flexible menus that include drinks and other specialty menu items offer customers new ways to sample the items that best tell the restaurants’ stories.
Travis Rosenthal, owner of Tango and Rumba, agrees. “Tango has enthusiastically participated in Dine Around Seattle for years, because it gives new customers a great excuse to try out our eclectic Latin cuisine, and our past customers a reason to revisit an old favorite. And now, with the new price options and flexible menus, we can include our craft cocktail bar, Rumba, where we’ll be offering a cocktail and two small plates for $22. It’s going to be fun!”
A bi-annual event, Dine Around Seattle spotlights the contributions of locally owned and operated restaurants to Seattle’s community and economy. “Local owners, chefs, and bartenders are incredibly creative people, and residents want to experience the full range of what they have to offer. We can’t wait to see what they come up with!” explains Christine Hanna, Co-Director of Seattle Good Business Network, the nonprofit that produces Dine Around Seattle. In addition, Umpqua Bank will be surprising fifty lucky diners with a $50 gift card to a participating Dine Around Seattle restaurant.
“Imagine enjoying a fantastic meal at a local favorite, and discovering you’ve won a gift to dine around again, courtesy of Umpqua Bank. That’s a good night out!” said Hanna.
Additionally, Dine Around Seattle has partnered up with Seattle Met Magazine to debut their brand new mobile app, Gastronaut, that is an app as comprehensive and dynamic as the Emerald City’s celebrated food scene. Available for free download from the App Store and Google Play, Gastronaut promises to be an indispensable guide for Seattle foodies on the go, offering trusted advice and recommendations whatever a diner’s priorities, be it cuisine or atmosphere, price or proximity. Featuring a robust restaurant search tool, along with news and reviews by users and foodie insiders – Seattle Met’s award-winning writers and editors – Gastronaut is poised to be the ultimate dining companion.
This November Dine Around Seattle is excited to feature more than 45 area restaurants, including newcomers and favorites like Anchovies & Olives, Barking Frog, Bramling Cross, Cantina Lena, Girin Steakhouse & Ssam Bar, Heartwood Provisions, Lecosho, LloydMartin, Orfeo, Pomerol, Poppy, Poquitos, Porkchop & Co., Rione XIII, Salt & Iron, Seatown Seabar, Skillet Diner, TanakaSan, The Saint, and Volunteer Park Cafe.
