Chow Time! Seattle Waterfront Hotel Restaurant Nominated for Four Awards

Chef Thomas Horner is making a big splash with his seafood plates at one of the premier Seattle Waterfront restaurants.

Hailing from Hook & Plow restaurant at the Seattle Marriott Waterfront Hotel, Chef Horner and his expertly crafted seafood chowder recently competed at the 2012 Waterfront Maritime Chowder Cook Off.

The title of best chowder is no small matter in a city known for its seafood. Chef Horner and the Hook & Plow restaurant competed in four categories, including Most Unique, Most Succulent Seafood, Overall Seafood Chowder, and The People’s Choice Award. The Seattle Marriott Waterfront restaurant’s team received an impressive 1400 out of 1700 votes in the People’s Choice Award category.

It’s no surprise that Hook & Plow earned such high praise. The Seattle, Washington hotel’s restaurant focuses on freshly-caught seafood and regionally-sourced produce, paired with artisanal wines and craft beers. Diners can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner either inside the newly designed interior or outside on the scenic patio.

Guests who truly want to indulge their taste buds can take advantage of a special six course dining experience in Chef Horner’s kitchen. The meal includes carefully selected flight of local Washington wines. For more information, call 206-256-1040.

Guests who wish to experience Hook & Plow’s award-winning chowder for themselves should visit the Seattle Marriott Waterfront Hotel. Regarded as a favorite destination among Seattle hotels near Pike Place Market, the Marriott hotel offers comfortable accommodations near some of the top attractions in Seattle.
