  • A Taste of this Fall’s Seattle Restaurant Week 10.14.15


    Seattle Restaurant Week (SRW) returns this month for a 10-day dining celebration October 18-22 and October 25-29. Over 150 restaurants throughout King County participate in this twice-yearly event celebrating the area’s best restaurants, local dining and fall-inspired menus!

    Restaurants offer special two-course lunch menus for $15 and three-course dinner menus for $30 featuring fresh, seasonal ingredients. Each menu has something for everyone with at least three options to choose from for each course—many of which are vegan, vegetarian and/or gluten-free. SRW is a great reason to try that restaurant you’ve been eyeing, explore a new dish at your neighborhood hangout, or treat your loved ones to a well-deserved night out.

    Here’s what you can enjoy from our clients during the city’s biggest dining celebration:

    Theo Chocolate Ganache Cake

    Award-winning Organic Cuisine at Tilth
    Critically acclaimed, New American restaurant Tilth in Wallingford is the perfect place to get cozy as the chilly fall days approach. James Beard Award-winning Chef Maria Hines has created a dinner menu for SRW filled with fall favorites, including many vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free dishes. Warm up with creamy Cauliflower Soup or fall-inspired Carnaroli Risotto made with delicata squash and pepita. Continue with mustard-glazed Roasted Washington Chicken or fresh Abalone Mushroom roasted to perfection. Then, finish with a slice of salty-sweet Theo Chocolate Ganache Cake or a Buttermilk Panna Cotta. (And that’s not even the whole menu.) Any three-course combination at Tilth will leave your stomach happy and anticipating your next Tilth dinner!
