Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be limited to chocolate, red roses and a fancy dinner date - romantic lunch dates are fun, too! Here are some ideas for lunch dates at or with food from Seattle eateries this Valentine’s Day...
Harried & Hungry | 1415 3rd Avenue | 206-264-7900
The lunch combos and fresh salads and sandwiches at Harried & Hungry make for perfect business lunches, but the deli goodness can become romantic with a picnic-style Valentine’s Day lunch! Order your favorite sandwich, salad, soup or lunch combo for takeout from Harried & Hungry’s Pioneer Square cafe location, and head to Waterfront Park to enjoy it with your sweetie. You could even take a ride on the Seattle Great Wheel to make your Valentine’s lunch even more special.
Lovage | 1526 1st Avenue | 206-467-4552
When it comes to vegetables, Lovage is the spot for colorful, healthy, and delicious soups, salads and rice bowls. Chicken, beef, tuna and tofu selections are also available, but the veggies are the main event! Grab something yummy like a fresh salad or rice bowl like the On The Border Bowl: carrots, black beans, corn, red and green peppers, red cabbage, cheddar, avocado, and green onions, with a drizzle of cumin and lime cilantro dressing. Lovage is another takeout spot from which to grab your Valentine’s lunch and head to a fun picnic spot.
Re:public | 429 Westlake Avenue N | 206-467-5300
Located in the heart of South Lake Union, Re:public is an ideal lunch spot for valentines who work at Amazon or other businesses in the neighborhood. It’s a great place to enjoy New American style dishes with fresh Pacific Northwest ingredients! The burger is amazing, but there are plenty of other yummy dishes that will excite your palate and offer a fun, romantic lunch to enjoy with your sweetheart.
Taylor Shellfish Oyster Bar | Multiple Locations
Oysters and champagne are well known aphrodisiacs, so of course you and your date will want to consider making a lunch of shellfish and bubbly. If you’re thinking a resounding ‘yes!’ to that idea, any of the Taylor Shellfish Oyster Bar locations around Seattle are the places to go!
Teddy's Bigger Burgers | 6900 E Green Lake Way N | 206-582-1885
Even in the wintertime, Green Lake is a beautiful park and place to be! And when it’s cold and gray outside as is so common this time of year in Seattle, the park is bound to be less crowded - making it a great spot for a Valentine’s Day lunchtime picnic. Pick up your favorite burger, sandwich, salad, or wrap at Teddy’s Bigger Burgers, perhaps indulge in a frosty milkshake, and head to the park for an impromptu picnic, lakeside!
