Summer into Fall

September is that wonderful time when you might get in a few summer activities even while cool fall weather brings things like hunting season and football. There's a change-over from summer produce to fall dishes. It's the month that covers it all!


Seated inside floor-to-ceiling windows surrounded by the freshest Pacific Ocean bounty, you can be forgiven for feeling like you're in the ocean. Land items foraged and harvested locally are paired with ocean delights to offer continuous options. You'll want to return again and again, especially knowing that TIDAL+ chefs make seafood choices based on the health of the ocean and environment. While seafood forward, all dietary needs can be met. Start your evening with $5 TIDAL-tinis, small plates, and $1.50 oysters. Or make an evening of it with their Theatre Dinner for two, bottle of wine, and valet parking. Visit soon.

TIDAL+ is located inside Hyatt at Olive 8 at 1635 8 th Avenue. Dinner is served Monday-Saturday, 3-11 p.m. Happy hour takes place Monday-Friday, 3-5 p.m. Theatre Dinner costs $159 for two plus tax and service; valet parking is good for four hours. Click here for more information.
