Seattle Restaurant Week takes place every Spring and Fall (usually in April and October) and it runs for 2 weeks. During this time some of the best restaurants in the city offer discounted meals so you can dine for $18 or $33.
This year, Monday, April 2 marks the first of Seattle Restaurant Week’s days. This year, during TWO weeks, on Sundays through Thursdays only, until April 19, you can get a 3-course dinner for only $33 at some of Seattle’s best-respected establishments spread all across town. Some participating restaurants will also be offering 2-two-course lunches for a mere $18. This year’s Seattle Restaurant Week (actually almost two weeks) counts currently 181 participants, though a few more could be joining the festivities.
There is also a Fall edition of the Seattle Restaurant Week from October 21 to November 8, but this post is about the Spring edition. Picking out a restaurant that’s highly priced means you’ll get the most for your buck during this year’s Seattle Restaurant Week. The participating restaurants include some usually pricey options. Seattle’s Restaurant Week is your best chance to enjoy some normally well-established, high-end restaurants at a very reasonable price. Bear in mind that this great opportunity is only offered on Sundays through Thursdays.
The Fall Seattle Restaurant Week takes from October 21 through November 8. The dining deals are offered Sunday through Thursday only and exclude Friday, Saturday as well as Sunday brunch. Also in the fall, over 180 local restaurants will serve up 3-course dinners for just $33 while many participants also serve a 2-course lunch for just $18. You must come to Seattle and taste it all to believe what’s going on.
My Seatle Adventure
I fell in love in the Autumn of 1993, with the woman I now share my life with, and with the city, I call home. I had just recently arrived in Seattle from Alaska, where I had lived and worked the last four years.
I was no stranger to Seattle, I grew up in Eastern Washington and went to college 90 miles north in Bellingham where I also helped as a volunteer in an education organization, but this was the first time I had ever lived in the city. Not knowing the area very well, I ended up choosing an apartment in Leschi, more or less at random. I liked the idea of living next to the water (Lake Washington), even though my apartment barely had a view of anything wet (I did have a grand parking-lot view though).
I had just blown into town from Alaska, where I had worked as a tour guide in Anchorage and Valdez. I was completely burned out, having gone straight into a long series of demanding jobs straight out of college, so I decided to move to Seattle and just live off my savings for nine or ten months. After previously debating long and hard about what to spend my savings on, I had come to the conclusion that I’d like to spend it on time. I bought months of leisure in my new home, Seattle.
