Kirkland Events & COVID-19


Kirkland’s core identity is its waterfront. Granted, seafood lovers, Lake Washington is not the sea, but Kirklanders still possess a kind of ‘seafaring’ character and culture, and this means we love our seafood. Just a few miles from Puget Sound’s abundant waters, Kirkland’s restaurants bound with fish, crustaceans, mollusks, bivalves, seaweed and other ocean-grown delicacies. If it is excellent, world class seafood you seek, you’ve come to the right place. Notably, many restaurants that do not self-describe as seafood venues also whip up amazing dishes featuring seafood, such as fish curry, sushi or clam pasta  for the seafood lovers among us.
