Burien is packed with great restaurants. While many Seattle favorites have locations there, including Bakery Nouveau and Bok a Bok, there are plenty of Burien-born restaurants, ranging from hole-in-the-walls to fine dining. The city has a small-town character, particularly felt in the town center or Olde Burien, but a global dining scene that features cuisines from Oaxaca to Nepal. Here are some of the best Seattle’s neighbor to the south has to offer, listed from west to east.
While all the places listed offer takeout, a number of restaurants have resumed indoor and outdoor dining. The level of service offered is indicated on each map point. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the King County’s COVID update page. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
