Start Saving Room… The Bite of Seattle is Almost Here!
It’s hands down Seattle’s favorite food fest. The Bite of Seattle sponsored by Groupon takes place this year July 15–17 at Seattle Center! This year there will be plenty to eat, and plenty to do – with 5 Outdoor Music Stages, a Beer Garden, and chef demonstrations on the Bite Cooks! Stage.
The 2016 Bite of Seattle features over 60 restaurants and specialty eateries from ethnic to unusual. No one dish is over $10 and you can chose from a variety of options including the “just a bite” option for just $3.75. Click here for a list of restaurants and their offerings.
The Bite Cooks! Stage
Presented by Albert Lee Appliance and hosted by the Chef in the Hat (Thierry Rautureau) this is an opportunity to watch it all happen live! Check out great cooking demos, take home recipes, and you be the judge at The Bite Cooks! Masters where chefs face off with a mystery ingredient and 30 minutes to prepare the best dish! Check out all of the details here.
The Alley is a special area (this year on the Fisher Rooftop) dedicated to raising money for Food Lifeline – a local organization that provides meals to 88,000 people in Washington state EVERY DAY. You pay $12 for a multi-course menu of tastes from 6 of the area’s best restaurants. The menu changes daily, so you can have a different experience at each of the Bite of Seattle’s 3 days. Donations are accepted as well- for each $1 donation, 5 meals are provided by Food Lifeline to the area’s hungry. Get all of the tasty details here.
- Come hungry. Duh, right? There is just no way to try out all of the amazing offerings- but leave as much room in your stomach as possible!
- Stay for the day. There’s plenty to see and tons to do- and you just might come around to getting hungry again!
- Try the “Just a Bite” options. Smaller portions mean you get to try more food!
- Bring Cash. While cards are accepted at some booths, its just easier and you can avoid technical delays if you pay with cash
- Bring a picnic blanket. You can campout on the hill for the day.

“Seattle is known for its fine dining and its events, and Bite of Seattle definitely combines food and events! ….The Alley, in my opinion, is the best value at the Bite of Seattle.” – Lynn G, Yelp Review
“YUM! Basically a street floor galore. All kinds of food tucks and tons of people enjoying some food. Go with friends and bring lots of cash, and of course an empty stomach. I love their food and the beer garden is always a good spot to hang out. Hang out in front of the waterfront and look at the space needle. It's worth it!” – Winnie F., Yelp Review
