This homegrown event, created by HomeTask, allows people the opportunity to visit multiple restaurants for a bite to benefit local charities, including:

  • Highline Schools Foundation
  • New Futures
  • YETI
  • Highline Food Bank
  • HomeTask Cares Foundation
This event is a follow up to the “Top Chef” event of March 20, when over 120 people gathered in addition to around 40 members from participating restaurants and volunteer film crews for each restaurant (read our previous coverage here). Official event Food Critics choose the “Food Critics Awards” while the guests spoke for themselves with the “People’s Choice Awards.” “Now it is in the public’s hands to vote and decide who will win the 2013 Burien Bites event,” reads an announcement. “Everyone is highly encouraged to participate and be sure to cast votes using the Burien Bites mobile app.” Pre-register at BurienBites.com.
