Seattle Restaurant Week is back! – Spotlight on Icon Grill (GIVEAWAY)

Seattle Restaurant Week is back – this week and next, Sunday – Thursdays! Get 3 courses for only $28 – a slamming deal at so many great Seattle restaurants!  Also, many restaurants offer 3 courses for $15 at lunch time!

So, the name is a little confusing. By “Week” they really mean weeks.  Not really sure why they’re not adjusting the name. But whatever. It’s delicious and twice as long as it implies. And the best news: you still have time to go.

I’m going to hit Icon Grill for lunch with my pal Ginger (who I’m excited about seeing – she’s been traveling  around Paris, Munich and Venice recently – can’t wait to hear her stories).  I’m loving that this promotion happens during Fall – the menus are so delightful!

SO looking forward to my lunch at Icon Grill tomorrow.  It’s going to include Mushroom Risotto as the entree (two of my favorite things in one dish), a mini hot fudge sundae for dessert…but I can’t decide on the appetizer! Check out these options:

Butternut Squash Soup w/ Cashew Salsa (I don’t really like soup or squash but for some bizarre reason I love squash soup)

icon 2

Grilled Pear Salad with Pomagranate Vinaigrette (sounds fresh and delicious!)

icon Grill’s Handmade Tater Tots stuffed with smoked cheddar and bacon (if you know me well, you probably know I LOVE tatertots! Never had stuffed ones though) 

or Bay Shrimp and Artichoke Heart Salad with a Creamy Lemon Dressing (swoon!)

(I’m sad the fried mac and cheese – which I’ve had before and is one of the best mac and cheese dishes in Seattle is only on the dinner SRW menu, but here’s a photo in case you go to dinner instead of lunch like me):

  1. I would choose the Grill’s Handmade Tater Tots stuffed with smoked cheddar and bacon, Mushroom Risotto, and Hot Fudge Sundae! Sounds amazing!


  2. Lunch: tator tots, fried chicken tender wrap, pumpkin bread pudding
    Dinner: fried macaroni and cheese, parmesan lemon sole, apple spice cake

    Mmmm….can’t wait to try all of these items!


  3. I’d do dinner because the flank steak sounds delish! I can’t decide between the salad and soup for the appetizer, but probably the soup. I LOVE butternut squash soup. And for dessert, I think the pumpkin bread pudding, although the apple dessert sounds so good, too! I like to go with someone else who will share two desserts 🙂


  4. I’ve never been to the Icon Grill! The menu looks AMAZING though! I’d love to try the fried mac and cheese/balsamic flank steak/apple spice cake for dinner! Sounds delicious!


  5. OMG, everything looks good!
    I would do dinner & go for the Fried mac & cheese, the stuffed chicken picatta and the mini hot fudge sundae. I think I’ll have to go whether I win or not! : )


  6. Grilled Pear Salad with Pomagranate Vinaigrette
    Grilled Balsamic Flank Steak with Roasted Red Pepper and Basil Reslish
    Apple Spice Cake with Whiskey Caramel Sauce


  7. icon Grill’s Handmade Tater Tots stuffed with smoked cheddar and bacon
    Salmon Pot Pie
    Pumpkin Bread Pudding with Cinnamon Caramel Swirl Ice Cream


  8. Since it’s Fall, I’m going for ‘Comfort Food’ all the way: starting with the Fried Macaroni and Cheese w/Smoked Tomato Bacon Rouille, then Stuffed Chicken Picatta for the Entree and I’ll end with the Pumpkin Bread Pudding w/Cinnamon Caramel Swirl Ice Cream. Yummmmm-City!


  9. Dinner all the way…Grilled Pear Salad, Grilled Balsalmic Flank Steak and Apple Spice Cake with Whiskey Carmel Sauce.
    Now I am drooling!


  10. Grilled Pear Salad with Pomegranate Vinaigrette, Mushroom Risotto, and definitely the Pumpkin Bread Pudding. That sounds like a VERY delicious lunch.


  11. I’m tooting for the icon Grill’s Handmade Tater Tots stuffed with smoked cheddar and bacon–not something I would make at home, but would indulge eating out.
