Only 8 More Days of Dine Around Seattle at Lucia Green Lake
Green Lakers, as excited as we are for spring, there’s only 8 more days left of Dine Around Seattle!
Dine Around is Seattle’s premier biannual dining promotion, with more than 50 restaurants offering three course prix-fixe menus. Three course dinners are $33 and three course lunches are $18. Yeah, had us at hello.
We were recently invited to Lucia, our only Green Lake participating restaurant. If you haven’t yet experienced Lucia, this is a great opportunity to do so. Situated inside Green Lake Village, Lucia has been turning heads with its rich Italian aromas, dreamy candlelight glow and sweet, black and white movie screenings since it opened last August.
With lunch and dinner options galore, the prix-fixe menus offer all the trimmings of a Lucia dining experience. For lunch, choose an appetizer of soups and salads, entree of truffle spaghetti and meatballs, caprese panini or chicken canelloni. For dinner start with a caprese or roasted red an golden beet salad, or sliced pear and gorgonzola crostini, topped with fresh herbs, red vinegar and garlic onion. For your entree, choose from almond crusted wild sockeye salmon, lamb and mint ragu or porcini mushroom sacchetti. Then finally dessert, tiramisu dusted with cocoa, chocolate decadence served with salted caramel gelato or raspberry gelato.
Come hungry, the portions are perfect and fair. For dinner I went for the vegetarian route: sliced pear and gorgonzola crostini, porcini mushroom sacchetti with saffron sauce, arugula and parmesan cheese. My meal ended in heaven with raspberry gelato from Sirena Gelato.
