The Picky Eater: Hard Rock Café Seattle Serves Bites and Beats

Since February 2010, Hard Rock Café Seattle has been serving up bites and beats to the Downtown area. But this spring, hungry patrons may now enjoy a few new items such as the Fresh Catch of the Day from Pike’s Place Market. Topped by juicy slices of oranges and lemons, accompanied by grilled asparagus, and propped up by a bed of steaming rice mixed with corn, red peppers, and broccoli, this dish brings a splash of spice and tang to the pallet. Mmmmm.

Or, add a little crunch to the table with classic fish-and-chips whose complementing sauce, slaw, and lemon bring some zing to an otherwise straightforward dish—quite fitting for the restaurant’s unique experience featuring musical memorabilia such as the doorway from Robert Lang Studios signed by iconic Seattle bands, Eddie Vedder’s acoustic guitar, and Rock Shop® selling a wide array of limited-edition merchandise.

The new menu has some meatier options as well. HRC’s poutine is the ultimate comfort food, and a must-have. Tender pulled-pork, Beecher handmade cheese curds, and gravy top off a plate of golden fries. Wash it down with a cold beer and prepare for what feels like a big hug from your dinner plate.


What’s more, if your taste buds need a wakeup call, the Java Lava Burger will do the trick. An espresso rub and house-made sauce liven up a beef patty topped with crispy onion pieces, melted cheese, smoked bacon, and fresh lettuce and tomato all between a toasted bun, and flagged by a fried jalapeño.


Furthermore, HRC meals can be enjoyed amidst the city’s sunshine and blue skies (yes, they do exist) from one of Downtown’s few rooftop terraces overlooking the water stretching beyond the horizon of Pike’s Place Market. So grab a friend, a drink, a bite…and enjoy!
