Dining in: savor the flavors of Downtown Issaquah!

Take advantage of the range of local restaurants offering takeout and delivery options

Sitting down for a meal at one of the many and varied restaurants in Issaquah’s “Historically Hip” Olde Town neighborhood has been a staple of the region’s culinary scene for years.

In the new COVID-19 reality that has changed, but you can still enjoy quality meals from most of these beloved eateries – takeout or delivery style!

“It’s a great opportunity to create a date night at home, without having to worry about making reservations,” says Terri Thorne, Interim Executive Director and Program Manager for the Downtown Issaquah Association (DIA). “Just call ahead, pick up your food or order online for delivery and have a romantic night at home.”

Home and gourmet cooking made fresh

Whether you’re a fan of ethnic foods or prefer West Coast or pub-style cooking, you’ve got LOTS of options for takeout or delivery in downtown Issaquah.

Classically trained chefs working here, include Pa Jallow at Levitate Gastropub and Jeff Maxfield at Fin’s Bistro, not to mention Max’s World Café’s Edna Noronha and Rick Ragan at Montalcino. Their eateries feature a cross-section of styles and specialties, from steak and seafood to Italian, Portuguese, Indian and more. Call ahead or visit their websites to check availability and menu options!

Looking for a global dining experience?

“While we can’t hop on a plane, we can enjoy around-the-world dining,” Terri says.

Got a craving for Asian cuisine? You’ve got Khao San, Japan Ginger, Macky’s Dim Sum, Coconut Thai, Bukhtara Bar and Grill for Indian food and the Asian-inspired Krawbar seafood restaurant at your service. If you like Italian, there’s Montalcino for a fine dining experience and Flying Pie Pizzeria for grab-and-go. For tastes of the south, try Stan’s Bar-B-Q or Las Margaritas, and to find locally sourced American cuisine, check out Jak’s Grill, Sunset Alehouse or El 42 Cantina.

Many of these and other local restaurants are family-owned, Terri adds, and operate with a real sense of community and local pride.

25 years of supporting community

This year DIA is celebrating a quarter century of “creating community, preserving culture and strengthening business” in Issaquah. While the association’s event-based activities are on pause, its support for merchants continues in different ways. One is to promote businesses still providing service: visit their What’s Open section and check out their Facebook, Instagram (#wegotthisissaquah) and Twitter pages.

“Small business operators are the base of our downtown historic district,” Terri says. “They’re the ones who help create that vibrancy and are staying open in this crisis. It’s an entertainment option our residents can continue to take advantage of.”
