The Magnificent Washington Restaurant That Feels Like Dining In A Secret Garden
Washington has quite a few unique and memorable dining experiences,
especially in Seattle. The Corson Building is no exception, and it happens to offer something truly magical — the feeling of dining in a secret garden in the city. If you’ve never heard of this one-of-a-kind space, check it out the next time you’re in the Emerald City.
The Corson Building is located at 5609 Corson Ave S. in Seattle's Georgetown neighborhood.
In addition to a restaurant, it's a private event space dedicated to food, community, and celebrations.
The space is lovely and elegant, so it's the perfect place to host a wedding or large party.
There's a private dining room inside with a 14 person capacity and private restrooms, or you can rent the entire facility for a large event.
The Corson Building was built as a private home in 1926, and it still feels like a private residence today.
The idea is to feel like you're at more of a dinner party than a restaurant.
The Corson Building is owned by chef Matt Dillon, who also owns the beloved Sitka & Spruce and Copal.
Much like the other two eateries, the focus is on quality, not quantity -- but this place takes that to a whole new level with their family style menu.
Dinner is served here on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday., and reservations are highly recommended.
You can order items à la carte or choose from a prix fixe menu that is served family style, with some things passed around the table and some individually plated.
The menu rotates based on the availability of fresh, local, and seasonal items.
Some of the herbs and veggies are grown onsite in the garden.
If you consider yourself a foodie or you want to celebrate a special occasion, this is the perfect place for you.
You'll get a fine dining experience with the intimate feeling of eating a meal in someone's home.
Patio season will be upon us again soon, but The Corson Building is open all year long.
You can book a reservation on the website or call (206) 762-3330.
