Why is it so epic? Two reasons really. This will be the first year Seattle has hosted an event like this in which local restaurants offer three-course pre-fixe dinners for $25. New York, Boston and Washington D.C. all roll out this extremely popular event annually. Secondly, the sheer number and quality of restaurants participating is enough to take pause and check it out.
Now don’t confuse this with the city’s current Dine Around Seattle event. While similar in nature, this is a totally different event. So what restaurants are partaking? Emmer & Rye, Barrio, Tavolata, Canlis, Spring Hill, Mistral Kitchen, Barking Frog, Bastille, Place Pigalle, Madison Park Café, Tidbit Bistro and Wild Ginger just to name a few. Pretty sweet line up right?
Seattle Restaurant Week is a great way to affordably try some of the best eats that Seattle has to offer so I highly encourage you all to get out there and treat your taste buds.
Some tips on how to make the most of Seattle Restaurant Week:
- Strategize – The full list of participating restaurants can be found on Seattle Restaurant Week’s Web site. Take a minute to review the list and decide which restaurants you’d like to visit. While your favorite restaurant may be on the list you might decide to punt and try a new place you’ve always been curious about.
- Make reservations…now – I cannot stress this enough. If you know you definitely want to check out popular restaurants such as Spring Hill or Mistral Kitchen, call and make reservations as soon as possible or visit OpenTable.com. This will ensure you get the opportunity to try out the places that are at the top of your list
- Make it a party – I’ve been talking about this event for weeks with my friends, so I thought this would be a good opportunity to get together, catch up with my girlfriends and experience something new together. I went ahead and sent everyone a list of the places I was planning to try and invited them to join me.
