Who puts on Seattle Restaurant Week?
Seattle Restaurant Week is operated by the Seattle Restaurant Cooperative. It is produced by The Seattle Times, which lends its expertise of consumer engagement and powerful reach to motivate participants.
What is the Seattle Restaurant Cooperative?
Seattle Restaurant Cooperative is a non-profit association of local restaurateurs united to represent local area restaurants. Its board members include representatives from some of the city's finest and most notable restaurants: John Howie Restaurants, Golden Beetle, Tilth, Nell's Restaurant, Rover's, Luc and Tom Douglas Restaurants. The founding members of Seattle Restaurant Cooperative are the chef-owners of Crush, Ethan Stowell Restaurants and Tilth.
Why did Seattle Restaurant Week start?
Seattle Restaurant Week started when local area restaurants united to thank diners for their support of the restaurant community over the years. Since its inception, Seattle Restaurant Week has provided diners with the opportunity to dine at some of the best restaurants in the area for a great deal. It continues to be a celebration of food and remains to be the broadest reaching, most price-conscious restaurant promotion in the area and one of the lowest priced restaurant promotions in the country.
