Seattle Restaurant Week kicks off on Sunday, with more than 165 restaurants offering three-course dinners for $30. (Some also offer two-course lunches for $15.) The promotion runs from October 18 through 22 and again from October 25 through 29.
With so many restaurants to choose from, we've asked perennial participant Thierry Rautureau (chef-owner of Luc and Loulay) to weigh in with suggestions of where to eat. His picks include:
“Very nice setting, such a great spot. Should be a priority for people to visit.”
“I like the openness of the space, delicious local food.”
"Fabulous setting, I love sitting on the sidewalk. I wish this was in my neighborhood.”
“Very vibrant, I love the energy in the place.”
“Reminds me of Basque country, love the small dishes made a la minute”
