  • Maria Hines’ Tilth Celebrates 10th Anniversary! 08.25.16

    Tilth

    Ten years ago Maria Hines opened Tilth — the groundbreaking, New American destination restaurant that was the second certified organic restaurant in the country. It quickly became nationally known, earning Maria a James Beard Award Best Chef Northwest along the way. Celebrate this Seattle culinary treasure with a 10-course Anniversary Dinner with wine pairings, September 1st or 2nd.

    Since its opening in September 2006, Tilth has upheld its commitment to serving certified organic, brightly-flavored New American fare and supporting local business along the way. The restaurant, in its first ten years, has received an abundance of rave reviews and accolades including the James Beard Award previously mentioned, being named one of the top 10 restaurants in the nation by Frank Bruni, food critic of the New York Times and appearances by Maria on Top Chef Masters, Martha Stewart and Iron Chef (she won!).

    Seattle Met captures the journey, achievements and more, writing of Tilth, “the revolution it helped ignite has changed things forever.” As Maria’s first restaurant, it propelled the farm-to-table movement in the northwest by highlighting important, local purveyors including farms, ranches and fishing vessels.

    Noted for calling out purveyors by name on the menu since the early days, the 10th Anniversary Menu is no exception. The 10-course menu features many of the long-time purveyors including King’s Garden Summer Melon Salad, Loki Seafood Salmon a la Plancha and Skagit River Ranch Braised Pork Belly.
