“Certified Local” Restaurants in Seattle
As The Seattle Umbrella moves forward, we are receiving an overwhelming response from restaurants in Seattle that are interested in being a “Certified Local Business.” It is a great selling point for restaurants to be easily recognized as a local business, because there is such a strong urge from consumers who want to eat locally. Most people don’t have the time or resources to grow and prepare their own food for every meal, or simply just want to go out to eat once in a while, so eating at a local restaurant that gets their food from local farms, is the next best option. Here are some great quotes and profiles of some of the various reasons that people like to eat local.
With such a strong urge and push from the community to support local businesses, and to eat local food from local restaurants, the challenge becomes finding these local restaurants. That is why our goal at The Seattle Umbrella is to take the research out of this process for consumers. When people see our logo in a restaurant window, they know that the business is “Certified Local” and is a great place to eat. Also when they come to our website online by searching for example, “local restaurants in Seattle”, they will have an entire directory of certified local businesses in Seattle.
With that being said, we encourage you to check out a few of the first “Certified Local” restaurants in Seattle. The first is actually a meal planning and delivery service called My Chef By Request. They provide healthy and gourmet meals for breakfast, lunch, dinner and even snacks that are all natural and produced local in your area. They have nutritious meals for any goal weather it is simply to eat healthy, eat local, or lose weight, and the best part is THEY DELIVER! We encourage you to check them out at www.mychefbyrequest.com for great food right from the Seattle area.
Next, we feature the Paragon, where you will dine on Seattle’s finest cuisine created by Chef Christopher Hartfield in the comfort and lively atmosphere that only Paragon provides. We next recommend a few businesses that need no explanation, and are very sweet – Mighty-O Donuts and Cupcake Royale. For a great locally brewed beer check out Hale’s Ales, and if you are looking for a great wine bar we recommend Purple.
These are just a few of the wonderful places to eat if you are looking to eat locally. We encourage you to think locally when making your choices for eating out, and hope that you will use us as a source to find local businesses in your neighborhood.
