JOIN US FOR OUR SEASONAL SHOWCASE!

Pacific Albacore Tuna and Heirloom Tomatoes

 

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. Our second event will focus on Pacific albacore tuna and heirloom tomatoes! 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 that prides itself on delivering quality crafted food and a great customer experience, we invite you to participate in our Seasonal Showcase this August!


HOW IT WORKS

Dates: August 5 – 23rd, 2018, 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 that you feel will offer value for money.

Menu Offerings: You must offer four items on your Pacific albacore tuna and heirloom tomatoes menu. A minimum of two must be entrees. Dishes do not need to include both items. You may have a dish that exclusively features tomatoes.

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 July 15th. We encourage you to create menu items specifically for the Seasonal Showcase, but you may also highlight items featured on your current menu.

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 YOU GET

Local foodie customers: We deliver Seattle’s affluent, urban professionals who dine out frequently and support local businesses.

Dedicated promotion for your individual restaurant: Full-page profile on dinearoundseattle.org, listing on rack cards and posters, and multiple social tags for your restaurant.

Ongoing collective advertising: Five weeks of print ads, online, direct email, social media, bus, radio, TV, street teams, and print collateral to deliver a steady up-tic in business. The event will leverage the promotional power of Seattle Restaurant Week, Dine Around Seattle, and The Seattle Times, along with other media partners.


WHAT IS THE COST TO PARTICIPATE?

$350 for returning DAS or SRW restaurants, plus (2) $50 gift certificates
$450 for restaurants new to either promotion, plus (2) $50 gift certificates

HOW ARE SEASONAL EVENTS DIFFERENT FROM SEATTLE RESTAURANT WEEK?

The seasonal events focus on a specific local culinary item. For August we will highlight local Pacific albacore tuna and heirloom tomatoes. Our seasonal events will not have fixed price menus, rather restaurants will let menu selections guide their price points.

A smaller group of restaurants will participate in our seasonal events. Approximately 45 – 50, versus 150+ participation in Seattle Restaurant Week. Fewer restaurants participating have the advantage of more individualized coverage.
