Sales Result has been in business since 2003, so it comes as no surprise that we’ve established some lunch and dinner favorites by now. Our team ranges from foodies to less-experimental eaters, but despite our preferences we’ve found some great restaurants that have something for everyone to enjoy! In this Restaurant Results blog, we’re sharing our favorite spots in Seattle and Bellevue for lunch, happy hour, and dinner. Bon Appétit!
Favorite for a Fast Lunch - MOD Pizza, Various Locations
The SRi team goes to MOD Pizza when we're looking for something fast and filling. MOD is a local chain with pizzerias peppered throughout the PNW area. They make individual-size pizzas and salads, the perfect portion for lunch, following an assembly-line process by taking orders at the counter. You can select something off the menu or customize any pizza or salad to your liking choosing from 30+ toppings, all for the same price. When we aren’t in the mood to get creative, the Jasper pizza and Deluxe salad are frequently ordered.
Favorite for a Leisurely Lunch - Duke’s Chowder House, West Seattle
When we have more time for lunch, we enjoy Duke’s in West Seattle. Out the windows is a beautiful view of Alki Beach and Elliott Bay. Eric, our CEO, always orders a cup of the clam chowder without fail, a great choice considering that it's ward winning. Their rockfish tacos and any of their fish & chips make for a scrumptious lunch, and if you stick around long enough, their afternoon happy hour starts early at 3pm! Not that that’s ever stopped us from a glass of wine at lunch before…
Favorite Happy Hour - Metropolitan Grill, Seattle
Speaking of happy hour, Metropolitan Grill in downtown Seattle has one of the highest-ranked in the city. The Met’s happy hour runs from 3-6pm and the food is quite discounted and very good, including a $7 “The Works” burger and three beef dip sandwiches with au Jus for $4. While not on the happy hour menu, the white chocolate coconut cake is deserving of mention. It costs the same as the aforementioned burger and sandwiches combined, but it’s one of the best desserts in town.
Favorite for a Casual Dinner - Toulouse Petit, Seattle
Toulouse Petit is a New Orleans-inspired restaurant located in the Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle. Their dinner menu is almost too long, making it hard to choose what to order and to pick favorites, but some dishes we’ve recently enjoyed are the Dungeness crab and fried green tomato appetizer, the pan-seared chicken with chanterelle mushrooms, sunchokes, and butternut squash, and the pan-seared Pacific sable fish with asparagus, herbs, and pistachios. It’s rare that we don’t share the beignets for dessert, a taste of the Big Easy in every bite.
Favorite for a Fancy Dinner - Daniel's Broiler, Bellevue
Many an SRi client dinner and celebration has been spent at Daniel’s, a high-end steakhouse in downtown Bellevue offering 21st-floor views of the Olympic Mountain range, downtown Bellevue, and the Seattle skyline. They have fantastic steaks all of which are USDA prime beef, and for those (god-forbid!) non-steak people like our Marketing Director Liz, the garlic chicken and the scallops are nice alternatives. On extra special occasions, we round off dinner with a drink or two in the Prime 21 Fine Spirits Lounge, a bar within the restaurant with a speakeasy style and a relaxing atmosphere.
