Seattle Dining Series: Happy Hour at RN74

RN74 Seattle

Hey gang – it’s time for the second post of my Seattle Dining Series, and our spotlight is on RN74.

RN74 was created from Seattle restauranteur Michael Mina – so it’s no surprise that this restaurant and wine bar blends its Americana and French-inspired cuisine and decor so perfectly.

On a recent trip to Seattle, we stopped by RN74 for an early happy hour and couldn’t have been more happy we made the time. If you’re visiting Seattle and staying downtown (IFBC attendees, I’m looking at you!), this is a must visit. It’s hands down one of the best restaurants in downtown Seattle. 

The happy hour offered a great selection of both light and more-filling munchies, and we were pleasantly surprised about the quantity and quality of the offerings. I honestly thought that RN74 might be unapproachable or pretentious; but it was quite the opposite. Not only was the food delicious and well priced (for happy hour – dinner is obviously a higher price point), but the RN74 staff really went out of their way to be helpful. Plus, when they heard about my Seattle Dining Series project, RN74’s manager proceeded to make a list of her favorite dining spots in Seattle. We’ve since hit several places on her list. They are all winners.

The verdict: whether you’re a local native planning a romantic date night – or a Seattle visitor looking for a taste of the Northwest, RN74 won’t disappoint.
