Food, Fabulous Food, in the Week Ahead
Saturday, October 15 (from 1:30 to 3 p.m.), will be Sushi Sampling to the Northwest Nikkei Museum. Sponsored by the Japanese Cultural & Community Center of Washington, this free event will feature sushi demonstrations, samplings, and insight into the Japanese food trends from past to present. Takeyuki “Tak” Suetsugu of Bistro Satsuma in Gig Harbor will preside over the sushi-making, and the event is in conjunction with the current Itadakimasu! exhibit which highlights the history of Japanese restaurants and food in Seattle.
Sunday, October 16, marks the start of Seattle Restaurant Week, with over 150 restaurants offering three-course dinners for $28 (excluding beverages, tax, and tip.) Some of the restaurants even offer three-course lunches for $15. Enjoy food from places like Poppy to Portage, and LUC to Lark.
Tuesday, October 18 (6 to 9 p.m.), is Seattleite and Gilt City’s Fall Comforts food tasting event at the Wing Luke Museum. Artusi, Bastille, Coterie Room, Golden Beetle, Mistral, Poquitos, RN74, Revel, Rover’s, Spur, Staple & Fancy, and Tavern Law will be on hand to serve up savory and sweet bites, along with wine and craft cocktails.
The Northwest Chocolate Festival comes to town on Saturday and Sunday, October 22 and 23. The action-packed schedule includes many concurrent classes, sampling from local, national, and international chocolate makers, and goodies like an Aphrodisiac Room, a Masquerade Ball Party, and a Beer and Wine Garden. There’s also a VIP package that provides admission to additional events.
Chocolate may be a sweet ending for some, but remember that the third annual Lamb Jam is Sunday, October 23. This is one of the best food events of the year, and SunBreak readers can now enjoy a twenty percent discount off the admission price by using code SEAJAM100 when purchasing tickets here.
If you’re still hungry after all this, note that Seattle Restaurant Week runs for a second straight week (both weeks being Sunday through Thursday).
