Seattle Restaurant Week October 2014 – 3 course meals for $25 (The Melting Pot, Mortons & More)!

The Seattle Restaurant Week starts in October and will run, Sunday, October 19th.  For 10 days, Sunday -Thursday (October 19th-23rd & October 26th -30th), over 170 Seattle area restaurants will be offering 3 course dinners for just $30 (and a number of them will offer 3 course lunches for just $15).

This is a chance to check out a restaurant that you’ve been interested in!!  Find out all the details over at the Seattle Restaurant Week website.  You can find out more on their Facebook Fan page as well. This event is very popular every year, so its a good idea to start thinking about making reservations now if your interested in trying out one of the more popular restaurants.

If you have not participated in Seattle’s Restaurant Week in the past here is how it works:

Lots of Seattles Finest (aka more expensive) restaurants offer 3 course meals for a flat rate of $28!  Maybe not the thriftiest price you have ever paid, but probably the lowest you will pay for these restaurants. If you like fine dining it  is a great opportunity to get out and enjoy some of your favorite restaurants without the usual price tag.  Many of the restaurants will also offer $15 lunches, which is really the way to go if you can make it out that time of the day (*Price is per person and does not include drinks, tax or tips.).

Seattle Restaurant Week is hugely popular around here so it is important that you make your reservations as soon as possible if you want to get in to some of the restaurants.

Examples of restaurants included:

ART Restaurant & Lounge
Barking Frog
Bastille Cafe & Bar
Bin on the Lake
BOKA Kitchen & Bar
Dahlia Lounge
The Melting Pot
Mortons Steakhouse
Salish Lodge & Spa
The Georgianne
Tilth….and many, many more!
