Seattle Restaurant Week October 2010

Picture from Seattle Restaurant Week Website

Here is another great opportunity for folks to take advantage of the great restaurants Seattle has to offer.       

Seattle Restaurant week is back, from October 17-28 with over 100 restaurants that will offer $25 three course dinners or $15 lunches.      

This is a great time for Seattle restaurants to show what they can do for a reasonable price and get customers they would usually not get, but also this is a great time for us foodies to go to our favorite places and get a good 3-course meal for only $25.      

Since it is only from October 17-28, Sunday through Thursday, with over 100 restaurants to choose from that is a hard task to narrow down to the place one should go to.  If you would go out every night of the week during that time you would only have time for 10 restaurants.  So I have narrowed it down to 10 of my favorites and which ones I would go to.  On top of that I am telling you what I would order on the menu.       

You can view the full list of restaurant on the Seattle Restaurant week website but below is my top 10 list.      

If you did my top list from Seattle Restaurant Week April 2010 then you will enjoy this new top 10 list.   

Don’t miss this opportunity!      

Here is my top 10 restaurant list that I would go to between October 17-28:      

ART Restaurant & Lounge – Here is my original review for Art Restaurant, but I would go back for three courses for $25.  Here I would order the Curried Kabocha squash soup with pumpkinseed gnocchi and date puree for appetizer. Then for entrée I would get the Pan roasted black cod with purple potato crab brandade, sage chestnuts, and cranberry beans. Then for dessert I would get Gingerbread roulade oatmeal raisin ice cream, candied butternut squash.  One of the best things at Art was their dessert so I am sure this one will be amazing too.

ART (Four Seasons) on Urbanspoon

Bastille Café & Bar – A great little French casual place in Ballard. Here I would order the Carlton Farms pork cheek terrine with Pommery mustard and pickled radish for appetizer. Then for Entrée I would get the Pork pot au feu with Nantaise carrots and dijon mustard crôute.  For Dessert I would get the apple Apple pavé with Maple fromage a la crème and apple butter.

Chez Shea – This is one of my favorite restaurants in Seattle.  This place is intimate and very romantic.  The food, which is French cuisine, is amazing.  I highly recommend going here if you have not been yet. For Appetizer I would go with the Escargot.  Then for the Entrée I would get the Bacon Wrapped Veal Tenderloin and for dessert I would just go with a very good Vanilla Bean Cream Brulee.   

Chez Shea

Crush – The only time I would recommend crush is during Seattle Restaurant Week.  The reason is that I think the food in Crush is overpriced.  It is good but not worth the money you spend there.  Therefore I always tell people go to Crush during a promotional event.  Also to me some of the décor at crush is a little cold with the white plastic chairs but that is my personal opinion.  For Appetizer I would get the Cider Glazed Berkshire Pork Belly with White Corn Grits, Pickled Apples & Arugula. Then for Entrée I would get the Roasted Anderson Valley Leg of Lamb Curry with Braised Beans & Mustarda.  And for dessert I would get the Vahlrona Chocolate & Hazelnut Feullietine “PB & J” Gelee of Raspberry “Jam” with Smoked Alaskan Salt Caramel.   

2319 E. Madison St.

Lola – Lola is one of Tom Douglas’ restaurants and probably my second favorite of his creations after Serious Pie.  Lola is his Greek Inspirational restaurant.  For Appetizer I would get Jackie’s Greek salad, barrel aged feta. Then for Entrée I would get the slow roasted leg of lamb with fennel and for dessert I would get the Caramel pudding pot with chocolate cinnamon cookies and brittle.   

2000-B Fourth Ave.
Seattle, WA 98121
(206) 441-1430

Olivar – This little Capital Hill restaurant is awesome. This is not just any other Spanish tapas place in Seattle.  This is the best tapas place in Seattle in my opinion.  If you do not get a chance to go here during Seattle Restaurant week you have to come back and try it out.  I highly recommend this place. For Appetizer I would get the Beet Salad but that is because I am a huge beet lover.  For Entrée I would get the Stuffed Anaheim with Braised Pork & Fried Egg. Then for dessert I would get the Profiteroles and house made Ice Cream.

Pair – Pair is another great little quaint restaurant that serves small plates.  Very casual place with great food.  I highly recommend going here. If you don’t get a chance to go during this event I would definitely try this place during regular times.  I am a huge fan of French Onion soup so I would start with that.  Then I would go with the Lamb Tagine Almond Cous Couse, Dates and Preserved Lemon for the entrée. And for Dessert I would get the Tart Tatin Caramel Sauce and Crème Fraiche.   

5501 30th Ave. N.E.
Seattle, WA 98105
(206) 526-7655

Spring Hill Restaurant & Bar – The only bad thing about this place is that it is in West Seattle.  So depending on where you live it might be a far drive.  If you are in West Seattle you are lucky but I am sure you have already been here. If you do not live in West Seattle do the drive, it is worth it. For appetizer I would get the Sockeye salmon mousse cured salmon with pumpernickel and herbed cream cheese. Then for entrée I would get the wood grilled beef bavette caramelized cauliflower, buttered russets, horseradish. For the dessert option I would get the Valrhona chocolate milk and Snickerdoodle cookies.

Spur Gastropub – If there is only ONE place you could go to during this week this is the place I would go to.  I recently tried this place for the first time and was really blown away.  The flavor combinations on the plates are amazing these guys are really doing the molecular gastronomy thing.  Every plate I tried was delicious and I would go back here in a heart beat.  I think this place is on my top must try list of Seattle restaurants. For appetizer I would get the Pork Rillette watercress with shallot jam and Dijon mustard. Then for entrée I would get the Braised Short ribs with potato puree, collard greens and red wine. For dessert I would get the Rhubarb Gallette with vanilla ice cream.   

Spur Gastropub
113 Blanchard St.
Seattle, WA 98121

Staple & Fancy Mercantile – This is the new Ethen Stowell restaurant that recently just opened.  If you have not been to his restaurants before you are missing out.  Another one of my favorites of his is Anchovies and Olives. I find his menu’s sometime intimidating so it is not always for everyone but I think his food is great. For appetizer I would get the Smoked Bluefish Crostini and then for Entrée the Gnocchi with Beef Ragu, Mint and Oregano.  Finally for dessert I would end with the Apple Bread Pudding and Cinnamon Gelato.   

Staple & Fancy Mercantile

    Pretty decent list! I would choose several of those. I’m sad that I don’t go to Chez Shea, but they really honestly ruined a really expensive Valentine’s Day dinner with my hubs (our first one when we were dating). I can’t bring myself to go back, it was terrible.

    My top choices: Matt’s in the Market, Moshi Moshi, Spur, Walrus and the Carpenter, and Tilth. All of those are just restaurants that I’ve wanted to try.

    I love Olivar! It’s one of the few places that Josh and I have been to in Seattle. Do you have any favorite sushi restaurants? I haven’t been able to find one that I want to try!

      Sara – Thanks for stopping by. My favorite sushi place in Seattle is on 2nd Avenue. I really enjoy as well but i find it a little overpriced. So if you haven’t been to Shiro’s yet you have to try it out.

    the place to the lavish villas. Nature lovers would love the transition from city sense to a green scene with its enormous park of orange and olive groves.
