From boutique breweries to chocolate confections, decadent burgers to gourmet delis, Seattle's oldest neighborhood is also its most sumptuous. Georgetown Bites: A Taste of Georgetown offers delicacies from over two dozen diverse drinking and dining establishments on Saturday, March 28 from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
The food and hospitality industry played a pivotal role in Georgetown's remarkable revitalization. Georgetown Brewing (maker of the popular Manny's Pale Ale) has been joined by Ellenos Yogurt and Fran's Chocolates (favored by America's first couple Barack and Michele Obama and celebrity chef Bobby Flay.) Pioneering dining and nightlife establishments like Jules Maes Saloon, one of the region's oldest taverns, along with nearby Nine Pound Hammer, Stellar Pizza, and Smarty Pants have attracted a growing array of alluring restaurants, bars, and cafes including Zippy's Burgers, Fonda la Catrina, Via Tribunali, Georgetown Liquor Company, Brass Tacks, Square Knot Diner, All City Coffee, Hallava Falafel, Flying Squirrel, Star Brass Lounge, Hitchcock Deli, and many more. Don't miss this opportunity to sample some of Seattle's most creative cuisine.
Georgetown Bites also marks the official beginning of the Festival Street project under construction right outside Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery. City officials and contractors will appear at noon on Saturday for the ceremonial groundbreaking to preview the project and answer questions from the community. See you then.
