Seattle – Kosher Restaurants

Hanukkah is over now, as of yesterday, but Orthodox Jews need this information all year, whenever they travel to a new city. Sometimes it takes quite awhile to get the information, as most of the sites have contained out-of-date information for all of the cities I’ve studied. And, even for this list (which I will not necessarily update), you must check with the restaurant before-hand, and ask to see their current Kosher certificate (if you are that frum).

Here are the current real Kosher restaurants in Seattle. These are not just “kosher-style”. Like some facilities on other website’s lists (for all 3 cities), I have still seen companies which have been de-certified, or have gone out of business, so always check before you go.

Seattle is divided into quadrants, so pay attention to the cardinal direction mentioned in most of the addresses. Use it to get to the right place!
