ART Restaurant Goes Romantically Dark for Earth Hour

earth ART Restaurant, located at Four Seasons Hotel Seattle, offers a 4-course Candlelight Dinner that is a romantic, eco-friendly dining option to celebrate Earth Hour.   Earth Hour is a World Wildlife Fund initiative that asks people to come together and do something to help the environment.  For one hour, people, organizations, and businesses are asked to turn off their lights for one hour.

ART joins with 46 sister Four Seasons properties in observing Earth Hour by creating a chain of candlelight dinners that circumnavigate the globe.  The chain starts at Four Seasons Hotel Sydney as it turns its lights out, then progresses west and continues around the world.

In Seattle, the special Candlelight Dinner will be available starting at 5 pm.  At 8:30 the restaurant will shut off its lights, allowing guests to enjoy their meal in the glow of candlelight.

The Candlelight Dinner menu looks delicious:
