Eat and Drink

Seattle is a city known for its fresh seafood, authentic cuisine, and highly developed microbrewery scene. Below, we list some recommended restaurants in the University District, nearby University Village, and in Seattle’s downtown. These include everything from pizza parlors to waterfront dining featuring salmon and crab from Puget Sound and even Alaska.

Conference attendees will find food and drink options in four locations on and around campus and downtown:

  • On campus
  • On University Way (commonly known as “the Ave”- 10 minute walk from conference venue)
  • At the fashionable University Village Mall (downhill 15-20 minute walk from conference venue and uphill return)
  • In Downtown Seattle
