From sushi spots to Italian eateries and new American fine dining, fresh seafood is a cornerstone of Seattle’s culinary identity. And many restaurants get the freshest fare from a seafood market on the northeast corner of the peninsula — Key City Fish Company, a proud sponsor of Seattle Restaurant Week. 

Supporting Key City Fish Company, and the restaurants who source ingredients from them, is an important way to continue to strengthen our local fisheries bouncing back from the pandemic. Read on to find out more about some participating Seattle Restaurant Week (SRW) restaurants who source their seafood and meats from Key City Fish Company.

Post-Pandemic some of Seattle’s best dishes are made in ghost kitchens and SRW is bringing them to the forefront during Seattle Restaurant Week.

It used to be a relatively overlooked part of the restaurant industry, but since the pandemic, ghost kitchen businesses have rightfully earned their place alongside brick and mortar restaurants. Ghost kitchens, also called virtual or cloud restaurants, are commercial kitchens rented by pop-ups, food trucks, market vendors, caterers, or bakers.

There’s no dine-in seating, but during the time of social distancing, that didn’t matter. Some ghost kitchen businesses offer pick-up or delivery through apps like DoorDash or UberEats, partner with like-minded restaurants for pop-ups, or sell their food at special events. Ghost kitchens are also more accessible than signing a lease on costly Seattle real estate, and can be a hub for resource-sharing and camaraderie among newer businesses. 

Featured restaurants include: Seattle Sorbets | Taste of Mumbai | Aroy Mak Thai Food
