Ready to Find Your New Favorite Restaurant? Seattle’s Most Diverse Restaurant Promotion Week is Back and Bigger Than Ever in 2024!

13th Plate of Nations highlights the unmatched diversity of the Southeast Seattle food scene.

Between March 22 and April 7, Seattle foodies can embark on a two-week culinary world tour without leaving the city, as HomeSight’s Plate of Nations returns for its 13th year of celebrating southeast Seattle’s diverse culinary scene.

The event, the most diverse of its kind in Seattle, features 50 independently owned restaurants and highlights the incredible cultural diversity in southeast Seattle, particularly along the Martin Luther King, Jr. corridor. Immigrants from around the world have settled in Rainier Valley and started businesses that provide cultural favorites for ethnic communities looking for a taste of home. Those restaurant owners are excited to welcome other customers to join in their traditions.

Participating restaurants span the globe from Laos to Ethiopia, and will offer special menu items, giveaways and prizes over the 12-day event. Customers can download a “passport” from the Plate of Nations website (or pick one up at any participating restaurant) to record their culinary trip around the world. When a diner reaches eight passport stamps, they win one of four prizes, including a private dining experience at one of our participating restaurants, and a secret recipe with ingredients.

“Southeast Seattle is so unique,” said HomeSight’s Community Development Director Sarah Valenta. “You can walk down the street and hear dozens of languages spoken. With so many cultures represented here, our food scene has choices from all over the world, and it’s all as authentic as you can possibly get.”
