Chef Kristi Brown of That Brown Girl Cooks is a current James Beard Award semifinalist for her acclaimed "Seattle soul food" restaurant Communion, which she runs with her son Damon Bomar. (Communion via Facebook)
While you can, and should, support women-owned restaurants every day of the year, there are a couple of especially good times to do it, including the entirety of March (Women's History Month), March 8 in particular (International Women's Day), and August 26 (Women's Equality Day). To help you celebrate any and all of those things, we've compiled this list of restaurants, cafes, and bars in Seattle that are owned by women (at least partially—some of these are co-owned by men), from longtime staples like The Walrus and the Carpenter and Linda's Tavern to newer spots like Sankaku, Kricket Club, and Drink Books. Excitingly, several of these women, including Kristi Brown of Communion, Mutsuko Soma of Kamonegi, Melissa Miranda of Musang, Pamela Vuong of The Flour Box, Rachel Yang of Joule, and Renee Erickson of The The Walrus and the Carpenter are semi-finalists for the James Beard Awards this year—read our post for more details.


Please note: While we've done our best to make this as comprehensive as possible, there may be women-owned restaurants in Seattle that we don't know about or otherwise unintentionally left off this list. If we're missing something, please email us and let us know, and we'll fix it as soon as we can. Thanks!
