’Tis the season for some spectacularly festive meals. To that end, Seattle’s iconic Canlis restaurant is now offering a new, exclusive venue for private parties: a converted shipping container on the west edge of its parking lot.
That’s right: Co-owner Brian Canlis explains that this tricked-out dining room—at once industrial and cozy, with a wood-fired oven (originally built for the purpose of baking the restaurant’s bread) and seating for eight—is an extension of the full-stop Canlis dining experience, “but in the most fun way possible.” It features a custom, multicourse, family-style menu prepared by Chef Brady Williams, wine and cocktail pairings, and naturally, the very best service in town. The price tag for a party like this? It starts at a mere $500 per person. Planning is essential; Canlis says there will likely only be a dozen or so of these dinners available each year.
