Food Options in Seattle (or, How to Eat Your Way Around the Emerald City)

The central location of the Seattle Convention Center means that there is no shortage of amazing food options for you at MLA’17. The Local Arrangements Committee is putting the finishing touches on the restaurant guide, which will be posted to the MLA’17 Dream Dare Do blog a few weeks before the annual meeting. The guide, stocked with recommendations from locals, will include dining options to suit various budgets and dietary needs. Peruse a completely gluten-free menu at Capitol Cider, located just a short jaunt away in the hip Capitol Hill neighborhood. Are you seeking Halal or vegetarian options? Pita Bite is a popular option for Greek and Mediterranean food in downtown Seattle.

Want to eat great food and meet other librarians? Sign up for one of six  Dine Arounds offered on May 25 and 26 in the downtown or in the University of Washington areas. Join fellow librarians at Oddfellow’s Cafe, located on the same block as Elliot Bay Books, one of the many independent bookstores in Seattle.  For some truly local flavor by the water, check out Ivar’s Salmon House, with a great view of South Lake Union and Northwest native art.Untitled.jpg

Food truck culture is alive and well in Seattle, too! During lunchtime, you’ll find people queueing up for their favorite dishes at one of several restaurants on wheels in Westlake Park, just a few blocks from the convention center. While you’re there, don’t miss Nosh, voted Best Food Truck in Seattle last year. Plan ahead with the help of handy online calendars for food truck offerings scattered throughout downtown and the South Lake Union area.
