Can the NYC Steakhouse Survive?
Anchovies & OlivesAddress and Info
This Ethan Stowell spot serves up fresh pasta with a seafood-flair in the same minimalistic way the restaurateur has become known for. It’s nestled on the edge of the Pike-Pine corridor, so it’s a perfect location for Capitol Hill and Madison Valley residents. The stars of the restaurant’s Seattle Restaurant Week menu are the hamachi crudo, an Italian ceviche, and an entree option of albacore tuna-charred onion with smoked mushrooms.
El GauchoAddress and Info
Let’s be honest -- to really enjoy Seattle Restaurant Week you want to feel like you’re enjoying a meal that’s a decadent escape from the norm.

Toulouse PetitAddress and Info
Get the beignets! That had to be the first thing said about this Cajun-inspired spot known locally for an amazing brunch.

The chef’s choice sushi plate is the star of the Seattle Restaurant Week menu, so you know, order that.
Omega OuzeriAddress and Info
A visit to Omega Ouzeri on Capitol Hill is the next best thing to booking a Greece trip.
