Seattle Restaurant Week (SRW) begins this Sunday, October 24 and ends November 6. Over 215 participating local restaurants will create special menus – $ 20 for lunch and $ 35 / $ 50 for dinner – during the SRW. Participating restaurants are listed on the SRW website, making it easy to find BIPOC-owned or women-owned restaurants. The website also lists restaurants that offer free community meals, with options for diners to donate a meal. The listings include the Eat Local First and EnviroStars designations, recognizing restaurants that source from Washington state growers and those who are committed to sustainability. Uber Eats will provide free delivery for SRW menu items with participating restaurants. Program manager Andrea Porter said that for this year’s SRW, âwe have a lot more participating restaurants from Tukwila or Bothell or Kirkland, so a little further outside of Seattle. “
