The very best deals from this spring’s restaurant promo bonanza — downtown, on Capitol Hill, in Bellevue and beyond.
Seattle Restaurant Week is here again, back for its springtime 2016 run with 165-plus places serving up $30 three-course dinners (and lots making $15 two-course lunches) from April 10 to 14 and April 17 to 21.* But with 165-plus restaurants involved, how do you choose?
Our recommendations for three important categories — best overall values, best newcomers and best ambiance — can help. Just be sure to make reservations (many of these restaurants get mobbed for SRW), and be sure to tip well (SRW gets extremely hectic for servers).
You save the most money at the places with higher everyday menu prices during Seattle Restaurant Week. By our math, these picks strike the food/ambiance/pricing balance the very best.
- Dahlia Lounge
- Monsoon (Capitol Hill and Bellevue)
- Seven Beef
- Staple & Fancy Mercantile
- Sushi Kappo Tamura
