If you dare drive to Seattle for dinner now through Aug. 29, The Georgian at The Fairmont could be your destination.
Or it could just be the source of your daily chuckle, as it was mine when I opened my e-mail today and read about the restaurant's I-5 Menu, in honor of the construction that's predicted to snarl northbound traffic into Seattle.
In addition to the $12 I-5'er Martini (Tanqueray Ten Gin, Cointreau and Red Bull with splashes of fresh cranberry, pomegranate and lime juice), The Georgian is offering 3-course dinners for $45 person. Here's the menu:
Spokane Street Caesar
Romaine Bumper-to-Bumper with Lobster Caesar Dressing
Horn Honking Smoked Salmon with Pothole Smashed Potatoes
or 1-90 Farms "Free Range" Chicken
Honking Honey Corn Cake, Jammed-Up Beans
Tail Light Delight
Black and White Soufflé
Just to prove that the promotion isn't highway robbery, The Georgian is throwing in free valet parking.
