Three Unique Communities. One Big Cuisine Scene.
Seattle Southside consists of three unique cities—Des Moines, SeaTac and Tukwila—that have a lot to offer your group’s next meeting, event or reunion, especially when it comes to local food favorites. Experience the true farm-to-table mantra at Copperleaf Restaurant in SeaTac—where some ingredients are grown right onsite in their gardens while others are carefully chosen from small, local Washington state farms, ranchers and fishermen that are aligned with this philosophy. Savor the flavor of seafood at Wally’s Chowder House—which is currently sitting at the #1 spot for TripAdvisor’s top restaurants in Des Moines—or dine with the delicious dishes accompanied by local live music offered at Anthony's Homeport Restaurant & Oyster Bar Grill also in Des Moines. Groups can indulge in dessert before dinner at Seattle Chocolate in Tukwila. The chocolate factory’s blend of chocolate and all-natural flavorings come together to create mouthwatering morsels of decadence for your group. Seattle Chocolate also creates some locally inspired flavor names such as Pike Place Espresso, Tukwila Hazelnut and San Juan Sea Salt.
