One of the highlights of our trip to Seattle was eating atop the Space Needle at the SkyCity Restaurant. The restaurant revolves 360 degrees twice every half-hour. The center where the elevators, stairs, kitchen, prep areas, and bathrooms are stays still while the rest of the restaurant rotates. This makes finding the bathroom and elevators/stairs interesting. Also, people randomly leave entertaining post-it notes on the windows while the restaurant rotates.
The restaurant is an upscale, high-quality restaurant with good food and, of course, AMAZING views. A benefit to eating at the restaurant is that you have free access to the Space Needle Observation Deck. We went for lunch because dinner is priced higher for some of the same items on the menu. Our server was Kate, who came back to check on us every so often.
I had the Wild King Salmon with Rainbow Potatoes, Asparagus, and a Rhubarb Emulsion.
My dad had the GINORMOUS Hazelnut Crusted Chicken Sandwich with Baby Arugula, Pancetta, Mama Lil’ Goathorn Peppers, Artichoke Aioli, and Steak-Seasoned Fries. If you’re starving, you should get this.
Joyce and my mom ordered the same entree which was the Dungeness Crab and Oregon Shrimp Salad with Farm Egg, Plum Tomatoes, Louie Dressing, Avocado, and Mixed Greens.
The girls both ordered the SkyCity Mac and Cheese which was special Space Noodle-shaped pasta with creamy cheese sauce and fresh fruit skewers.
For drinks, I ordered a virgin Strawberry Daiquiri and the girls both ordered Strawberry Smoothies. Ice water is complimentary along with slices of lemon.
As I’m writing this I’m disappointed that I didn’t know about SkyCity’s signature Lunar Orbiter Ice Cream Sundae dessert served on top of Dry Ice (which makes quite a show when served). We definitely need to try this the next time we come back as we were totally stuffed already from the meal.
