The spring 2017 edition of Seattle Restaurant Week is nigh — from April 2-6 and 9-13, tons of local places will serve up $32 three-course dinners, with many making $18 three-course lunches as well (up from two courses last time around). (The Seattle Times Company is a sponsor.) But with 165-plus restaurants taking part, how do you choose?
