Over 100 Restaurants for Seattle’s First Restaurant Week

With numerous restaurant promotions around town, it’s hard to believe that this year will launch the very first Seattle Restaurant Week.  Capitalizing on a strong local restaurant community, as well as the successes of other Restaurant Weeks across the country, Seattle will WOW you with this new dining promotion.

restaurant week Designed to get new customers into restaurants on days that might traditionally be slower, Restaurant Week features 3-course prix fixe dinners.  Some restaurant offer a lunch option as well.  The name is a bit of a misnomer as the promotion lasts for two weeks.

The participating Seattle area are too numerous to mention, but include a mix of classics and newcomers   Here are a few to whet your appetite and get your stomach growling:

  • Andaluca
  • ART Restaurant & Lounge
  • Canlis
  • Crush
  • How to Cook a Wolf
  • Mistral Kitchen
  • Place Pigalle Restaurant
  • Salty’s (both Alki and Redondo)
  • The Georgian
  • Tilth

There are lots of great choices and I’m already mapping out a strategy to get to as many of them as I can.  It’s always a tough decision to go back to some of my favorites (Canlis, Etta’s and Place Pigalle) or to finally get to some restaurants that I’ve been wanting to try (ART, How to Cook a Wolf and Tilth).
