The dining-out promotion bonanza known as Seattle Restaurant Week is back for fall 2019, running from Oct. 27 to Nov. 7, Sundays through Thursdays only. With 165-plus places in the Seattle area offering special three-course set menus for $35 (and some offering two-course $20 lunches, Mondays through Thursdays only), decisions can be tough. (The Seattle Times is a sponsor.)

One option to consider: heading to a new (or new to SRW) restaurant you’ve been meaning to try. Below, find all the newcomers this time around, from Bellevue’s swanky (and critically praised) Ascend Prime Steak & Sushi to Belltown’s Peruvian Imperial Lounge.

13 best choices for overall value for Seattle Restaurant Week fall 2019

Pro tips: Preview all the options at, and do a price comparison between the SRW menu available there and the restaurant’s regular menu. Be sure to make reservations, as many of these restaurants get very busy for SRW. And remember to tip well — it’s difficult for some places to staff up sufficiently for the mobs, so have a heart if your server seems harried.
