If you like the idea of taking your loved one out to a special place for her birthday but feel intimidated by fine dining, Copine is the place for you. The ingredients are recognizable to casual diners, yet elevated to a symphony of flavor and refinement.
To fit the theme of elegance and approachability, you can’t go wrong with a flower bouquet in Seattle. This is the perfect birthday gift to brighten those rainy evenings and set the tone for the birthday celebrations.
The Pink Door and a Framed Portrait
The Pink Door is by and large the most romantic restaurant in Seattle. You can dine both indoors and al fresco, enjoying a delightful Italian menu that will transport your taste buds to Tuscany. Start with a delicious antipasto platter before choosing from a broad array of pasta, fish, and meat. Add a bottle of Chianti, and you’re in for a birthday dinner you’ll never forget.
On the theme of making memories, give the gift of a beautifully framed portrait. Consider enhancing a photo of you and her together, or have an artist recreate a cherished memory. Take your work to Cascade Frames to have it matted and framed for a stunning display.
Six Seven and Custom Jewelry
While Six Seven is a hotel restaurant, it’s worth mentioning as a stand-alone dining experience. This award-winning seafood restaurant is on the waterfront, offering stunning views of the Puget Sound, with the Olympic mountains visible in the distance. The chef-created American cuisine and beautiful accommodations make for a perfect overnight birthday getaway.
Pair this amazing restaurant with an equally amazing piece of custom jewelry from Joseph Jewelry. Work with their talented designers to create a bespoke piece that’s as unique as the birthday girl. Joseph Jewelry also offers redesigns and refurbishment options, which are perfect for upgrading an heirloom piece.
AQUA and a Sunset Cruise
In a coastal city filled with incredible seafood restaurants, AQUA stands apart. This fine-dining seafood establishment by El Gaucho offers premium seafood dishes and the highest quality certified Angus beef. Every dish is an experience for you and the birthday girl to share. On that note, AQUA offers some delectable shareable dishes, including a sensational crab mac’ and cheese.
Cap off the evening with the gift of a sunset cruise. There are various options for cruise charters to take you around Lake Union, or you can venture into the San Juan Islands via kayak. For a truly magical evening, take the bioluminescent kayak tour in Friday Harbor.
The Capital Grille and Glass Blowing Lessons
The Capital Grille is a classic, all-American steakhouse for those who appreciate the finer things in life. Renowned for their delicious food and sensational customer service, the Capital Grille is in the top ten rated restaurants in all of Seattle.
