This Sunday is April 22, a chance for Seattle’s already-conscous restaurant community to kick things up a notch. Many, many, many local establishments (and their patrons) practice Earth Day sensibilities year round, but the date remains an opportunity to appreciate living in a city with myriad farm-to-table and sustainability-conscious establishments. Here are a few places doing special Earth Day events.
Brewers from around the state will be walking, biking, sail-boating, and bike-rickshawing kegs of beer to the pub this week for the annual Earth Day celebration that culminates in a benefit for nonprofit Feet First. And tonight the pub will be offering a special Earth Day menu. Tickets and reservations required for the benefit.
When: Dinner April 19, Feet First event April 22 2 to 4:30pm
Price: $20 for the benefit, plates vary for the Earth Day menu
The locavore-focused restaurant at the Hyatt at Olive 8 hotel is showcasing its mission with a prix-fixe brunch featuring ingredients that have made their way straight from local Washington farms to your plate. Reservations recommended.
When: April 22 to 28 6:30am to 2:30pm
Library Bistro and Bookstore Bar
New chef David Hatfield’s raised his own heritage pigs and composted heavily at his previous restaurant in Bend, Oregon. He is carrying on that tradition in his new gig, providing diners with ingredients from his own rooftop garden and pigs that he butchered earlier this year. The a la carte brunch menu (offered in addition to the regular brunch) sports plates like a grilled Tamworth pork chop over ragu of wild Cascade mushrooms. Book a reservation.
When: April 22 8am to 1pm
Price: plates vary between $9 and $14
Lobby Bar at Pan Pacific Hotel
This eco-friendly hotel—which is also reducing guest’s carbon footprint by supporting 100 percent Washington state wind power—will be mixing up earth–inspired libations in the Lobby Bar.
When: Through April 30
