There are several great restaurants in Seattle. Since my primary focus here at CraftBeerMonger.com is on craft beer though (and to a lesser degree craft cider and other craft alcoholic beverages), I haven’t visited as many of Seattle’s fine dining establishments as I’d like. Also, due to my somewhat unusual work schedule, I don’t get to downtown Seattle for a good meal very often.
That’s why I was pleased to receive an invitation recently from Urbane to experience, on them, their Fresh Hop dinner, featuring Fresh Hop beers from Georgetown Brewing Company. Urbane is a farm-to-table restaurant who prides themselves on sustainability and using locally-sourced ingredients. In fact, the vast majority of Urbane’s ingredients come from within a 200-mile radius of the restaurant located at 8th Ave and Olive Way in the Hyatt at Olive 8 building downtown.
