When touring Seattle, consider checking our the restaurant scene in the burgeoning Capitol Hill region courtesy of Seattle Food Tours.
This 5-course progressive dinner will feature a different course from five restaurants including 4 time James Beard nominee, Chef Ethan Stowell’s Bar Cotto, and fellow James Beard nominee Jason Stratton’s Artusi, the beautifully crafted Momiji, certified gelato master Marco’s namesake D’Ambrosio and tucked away in the historic Oddfellows Hall, The Tin Table.
As these tours range from 2 to 12 people, guests have the opportunity to interact with each other as they connect and learn about Seattle's food scene and the history of the neighborhood. Also thanks to owner Michael Rogers' connections, these tours include short presentations from some of the chefs preparing these dishes.
Unlike other tours where one can feel a bit herded around with walkie-talkies and branded swag that makes one feel like a tourist, here one can relax for a more peaceful and immersive experience. In addition, these adult-only events ensure that one can enjoy their meal without the intrusions that can happen when children are added into an evening catered for an older crowd.
Currently, the Capitol Hill Social runs from Thursday through Sunday. Tours begin at 4:30pm and conclude with desert in 2.5 hours. Tickets cost $69.00 per person (with tax) which includes food and wine. Optional cocktails are extra but are highly recommended for those wishing to sample all of the area's offerings. Reservations can be made online at the Seattle Food Tours website.
Those who wish to continue a culinary tour of Seattle can check out Seattle Food Tours' treks through Pike Place Market and Belltown.
