Seattle Restaurant Week Kicks Off This Sunday


Seattle Restaurant Week (SRW) begins this Sunday, October 24th and lasts through November 6th. Over 215 participating local restaurants will create special menus during SRW – $ 20 for lunch and $ 35 / $ 50 for dinner. The participating restaurants are listed on the SRW website, which makes it easier to find BIPOC or women’s own restaurants. The website also lists restaurants that offer free community meals, with the option to donate a meal. The lists include the Eat Local First and EnviroStars awards, which recognize restaurants sourced from Washington State producers and restaurants that are committed to sustainability. Uber Eats delivers SRW menu items with participating restaurants for free. Program manager Andrea Porter said for this year’s SRW: “We are taking a lot more restaurants from Tukwila or Bothell or Kirkland, so a little further outside of Seattle.”
