Seattle Restaurant Week – a bit of a misnomer this year – begins April 1 and runs through April 30. This year’s month-long promotion isn’t the same as years past: Seattle Restaurant Week typically charges fees to restaurants, but due to the extremely negative impact of the pandemic on eateries, participation is free.
Participating eating establishments will offer special prix fixe menus all month long and offer takeout, ready-to-heat, delivery, meal boxes, and indoor and outdoor dining as permissible by public health guidelines. Diners can grab a meal in whatever format works best for them.
We have two excellent Phinney Ridge businesses participating this year: Ada’s and Modern.
Ada’s Restaurant and Bar has been a staple of the Phinney Ridge neighborhood for years. Nick Sfondouris started Ada’s Restaurant & Bar to honor his beloved wife. They were a part of the Phinney Ridge community for over 40 years, and have spent their time in Phinney doing their best to create a better community. Nick still comes by the restaurant from time to time, and if you’re lucky, there’s a very good chance you’ll run into him, and hear one of his many animated stories about the rich history of the area. Here is more information on their SRW Offering.
Modern Japanese Cuisine is a longtime neighborhood cafe specializing in handcrafted pastries and sushi. They have an extensive selection of Japanese cuisine, both traditional and new, including specialty rolls and sweet treats like green tea roll cake. Here is more information on their SRW Offering.
