SEATTLE RESTAURANT WEEK DEBUTS WITH $25 MENU
Growing roster of over 100 area restaurants presents $25 three-course menu April 18 – 29
SEATTLE – Beginning April 18, local restaurants will offer diners one of the broadest reaching, most price-conscious dining promotions of its kind with the debut of Seattle Restaurant Week. The two week restaurant promotion will take place April 18 – 29, Sunday through Thursday, at an expanding roster of over 100 area restaurants offering diners three-course dinners for $25, some also offering three-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 area’s best restaurants. Largely based on the success of other Restaurant Weeks across the country, the promotion is open to any restaurant in King County – from neighborhood independents to local restaurant groups and national multi-units – that can offer a value driven three-course dinner menu for $25 (optional $15 three course lunch). From award winning restaurants to buzz-worthy newcomers and local classics, Seattle Restaurant Week will give diners the opportunity to dine for a deal in nearly every major Seattle and Eastside neighborhood, totaling more restaurants than any previous promotion.
“It is our genuine hope that diners will take complete advantage of Seattle Restaurant Week. The two week frenzy is a celebration of food, but it is also a way for us, the local restaurants, to thank diners for their continued support,” noted Chef-Owner Maria Hines of Tilth restaurant.
Seattle Restaurant Week is spearheaded by the Seattle Restaurant Cooperative (SRC), a team of restaurateurs from some of the area’s top restaurants: Crush, Ethan Stowell Restaurants, Flying Fish, Seastar, Tom Douglas Restaurants and Tilth. In a sea of restaurant promotions, SRC is the voice for the restaurants, who have an ear to what diners want and need. Seattle Restaurant Week was created through a desire for cohesion, based on an extensive survey of local restaurants responding to dining promotion questions posed by SRC. The survey dictated the format for this promotion.
“The restaurant community needed a promotion that restaurants could really get behind and support. At the same time, the promotion had to resonate with diners in price, menu quality and number of participating restaurants. We believe we have achieved this with one of the lowest priced restaurant promotions throughout the country,” said Chef-Restaurateur Ethan Stowell.
In an effort to create a cohesive restaurant promotion, Seattle Restaurant Week has partnered with seattletimes.com and its previous dining promotions, including Urban Eats. The partnership will leverage seattletimes.com’s knowledge of diners’ habits and trends, its relationships with restaurants and its eight-year experience with restaurant promotions.
Seattle Restaurant Week, held the last two weeks of April and October, offers diners a $25 three course menu and optional $15 three course lunch, Sunday through Thursday at participating area restaurants. The promotion is open to any King County restaurant that can offer a value driven menu for $25. Seattle Restaurant Week is run by the Seattle Restaurant Cooperative, a group of local restaurateurs that have united to represent the restaurants.
