Almost every neighborhood in Seattle is offering delicious meals at amazing prices during Seattle Restaurant Week (SRW), going on now. Over 160 restaurants are participating and from this great lineup, almost 80 restaurants offer vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options – something for everyone!
Although the first week is over, don’t fret as there is still another four days to enjoy $28 three-course dinners and $15 three-course lunches at select restaurants, through Oct. 24. More than 25 different neighborhoods are participating in SRW this year so diners are likely to find great dining spots close by.
Hit the eclectic neighborhood of Queen Anne and savor mouth-watering Asian or French dishes. Live on the Eastside? In Bellevue and Kirkland, feast on Mexican appetizers or all-American comfort food. Treat yourself to a gluten-free dessert or authentic Greek entrees in Ballard. On Capitol Hill, 17 dining spots are offering delectable dishes for lunch or dinner. In the downtown area alone, a whopping 40 restaurants have created special menus for SRW guests, including Salty’s (pictured above) and Agrodolce (pictured below).
In addition to these delicious dining deals, 425 Magazine is holding a contest to win a $50 gift card to one of the featured restaurants during SRW. The contest closes Oct. 24 and the winner will be notified via email. Also check out SRW’s Facebook and Twitter pages for guest food reviews, entrée highlights and more $50 gift card giveaways from participating SRW restaurants.
The 8th annual Seattle Restaurant Week has already begun! Over 160 restaurants from all over the Seattle area and the Eastside have teamed up to give guests an amazing dining experience at great prices. Participating restaurants are offering 3-course dinners for just $28, and many also offering 3-course lunches for $15. Now through Oct. 24 is a great chance to try a new restaurant in a different neighborhood or visit your favorite spot for great deals.
To preview some of the best that Restaurant Week has to offer, chefs appeared on KING 5’s New Day Northwest show and presented special dishes that are featured on their Seattle Restaurant Week menu. Some restaurants like Ponti Seafood Grill in the Queen Anne neighborhood, will be opening their whole menu for Restaurant Week guests. Other great restaurants like Hunger 2.0 and Anthony’s Restaurants in Fremont and in the Seattle area, respectively, have put together a special menu of favorite appetizers, entrees and desserts.
Watch the below video and see the latest appearance by Osteria La Spiga’s very own Chef Sabrina Tinsley, as she demonstrates the creative process of their mouth-watering dish, the salsiccia con l’uva.
164. That’s the record number of restaurants that are participating in this spring’s Seattle Restaurant Week. 164 reasons to dine out on 3-course menus for $28, some with 3-course lunches for $15!
If that isn’t enough to sway you, then perhaps free “dinner for two” giveaways will! For each of the ten days of the promotion, approximately 30 restaurants will randomly select two lucky guests for free SRW dinners. The participating restaurants will perform the giveaway twice during the promotion, totaling approximately 300 dinners for two given away for free (excluding beverage, tax and gratuity, additional menu items). To win a dinner for two, all you have to do is dine out! The more you dine out the more you increase your chance of becoming the lucky recipient.
In addition, the SRW board will give away a grand prize of a five-course dinner for eight, with each course prepared by a board member restaurant chef and a paired bottle of wine from the chef’s cellar. All entrants of SRW giveaways and contests will be automatically entered to win the grand prize. The board member restaurants include John Howie Restaurants (John Howie Steaks, Seastar, Sport), Maria Hines Restaurants (Agrodolce, Golden Beetle, Tilth), Nell’s Restaurant, LUC, and Tom Douglas Restaurants (Brave Horse Tavern, Cuoco, Dahlia Lounge, Etta’s, Lola, Palace Kitchen, Seatown, Serious Pie).

One of Capitol Hill’s favorite mainstays reopened this past weekend after a four-week closure. Coastal Kitchen, the 20 year favorite for breakfast, lunch and dinner, underwent construction that had crews putting in a new oyster bar for bivalve fans, building a new cocktail bar for the over 21 crowd, and installing new bamboo flooring and other details in the rest of the dining room.
A new menu launch beckoned longtime Coastal Kitchen diners and attracted new guests. New executive chef Jason Jones brings a wealth of experience to Coastal with sustainable seafood and other new favorites for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night seven days a week.
For any oyster fanatics, count on at least four different oysters on the half shell daily, including the Two Buck Shuck, a chef’s choice of one variety of oyster for just $2 all day.
Find out why owner Jeremy Hardy decided it was time for a remodel from Capitol Hill Times, see how the reopening was celebrated in advance on Seattle Met, see pics from the preview event courtesy of Capitol Hill Seattle Blog, and read about the bicoastal oyster bar in Thrillist.
