JOIN US FOR OUR SEASONAL SHOWCASE!
SHELLFISH SHOWCASE

 

Diners and chefs alike have expressed an interest in exploring the bounty of the Pacific Northwest, and we’re excited to answer with a creative line-up of seasonal events showcasing what’s fresh and local throughout the year. This, our second event, will focus on shellfish! Chefs can create dishes driven by what’s local and inspiring while diners will be intrigued to seek out new restaurants and check in with their old favorites to try new dishes!

If you operate a local restaurant, which prides itself on delivering quality crafted food and a great customer experience, we invite you to participate in our Seasonal Showcase this January!

HOW IT WORKS

Dates: January 6 – 24th, 2019, Sunday – Thursday (Friday and Saturday excluded)

Meal Pricing: There are no set prices for menu items. Prices are driven by your menu selections. We encourage you to set price points you feel will offer value.

Menu Offerings: You must offer four locally sourced items on your seasonal showcase menu. A minimum of two must be entrees.

You may also offer the seasonal menu items at lunch, but that’s optional. Brunch is excluded. A customer may choose to order just one item from your selection of four choices, or they may order more.

Participation Requirements: In order to be featured on the Dine Around Seattle website, you must submit your menu items by December 14th. We encourage you to create menu items specifically for the Seasonal Showcase, but you may also highlight items featured on your current menu.

The seasonal highlighted items of shellfish must be sourced locally. This means that you strive to incorporate locally grown, harvested, raised, caught, or produced items on your seasonal menu. Additionally, restaurants must list their local sources on their menus.

You must create a printed menu highlighting your Seasonal Showcase menu items. The Seasonal Showcase menu should be distributed to all customers during the promotional period regardless if they inquire about the promotion.

 
WHAT TYPE OF SHELLFISH SHOULD WE FEATURE?

Oysters, clams, mussels, shrimp, and geoduck from Washington and Oregon are the focus of this promotion. The Pacific Coast Shellfish Growers Association (www.pcsga.org/our- shellfish/) has a robust list of shellfish, as well as growers.

HOW ARE SEASONAL EVENTS DIFFERENT FROM SEATTLE RESTAURANT WEEK?

Seasonal events focus on specific local culinary ingredients. For January we will highlight local shellfish. Our seasonal events will not have fixed price menus, rather restaurants will let menu selections guide their price points.

Seasonal events will feature a smaller group of restaurants, approximately 45 – 50, versus 150+ participation in Seattle Restaurant Week, this will allow more individualized coverage.
