No reservations, anniversary dinner this evening?

casspants Mar 4, 2013 12:53 PM

My husband and I are celebrating our 7th year married and we both have slacked on dinner reservations. (A Monday anniversary takes the fun out of going out to dinner somewhat.)

I'd love some help:

Somewhere that is easy to get into without reservations

Pacific NW food or New American, preferably

Open on Mondays

    Nell's by Greenlake?

      So Nell's food is pretty good, but it's an awkward place to celebrate on a Monday--see here: http://blogs.seattleweekly.com/voraci...

      Though this person has now, presumably chosen and eaten, I just thought if someone was referring back, I'd add it.

      Casspants, where'd you end up?

      http://blogs.seattleweekly.com/voraci... Here's my list. Coterie Room seems like it would be the perfect place. Zoe is another one that could work well.

        I'd start by eliminating anything that's on the Dine Around Seattle list...

        How about Eva in Green Lake? Tucked away, quiet, romantically lit.

          Madison Park Conservatory is open tonight. You can make reservations/check to see if they have room at Urbanspoon I think.

            Does MPC do their regular menu on Mondays, or is that their day to deviate and do theme nights? A few other places are open mondays but not for their regular menu, like taco night at Sitka & Spruce.

              Nothing about theme nights on their website. They change their menu frequently, so I doubt they'd bother. We were there last Thursday and had a day old menu that had to be replaced, there are a few variations every day, I think. The food was good, it was quiet and I think would be appropriately romantic for an anniversary.

              they do not seem to be open tonight. no one answers, hours say "closed on monday" and urbanspoon does not list monday as an option for reservations. everything points to not open.

              is there a secret password i don't know?

                In general, except when they have theme nights, I didn't think they were open on Mondays.
