Celebrate the Sonics’ 1979 Championship at Ray’s 5.31-6.2!

On June 1, 1979 Jack Sikma, Ray’s co-owner, helped lead the Seattle Sonics to their first and only NBA Championship title! The city celebrated for days with tons of fans meeting the team’s airplane at Sea-Tac, a celebratory parade through Seattle, and fanfare all around town.

Now 40 years later we celebrate this historic win with you at Ray’s Cafe, where Jack has been a co-owner since the early 1980s. We’re also celebrating the news that Jack will be enshrined into the NBA Hall of Fame this September!

Join us in our upstairs Café for a special “$19.79 SuperSonics” menu from Friday, May 31, 2019 at lunch through dinner Sunday, June 2. Wear your Sonics gear, sip on wine and try food specials celebrating Jack and the 1979 team!

Fresh Copper River Salmon Has Arrived!

Copper River salmon season has begun and Ray’s has just received this incredible, fresh fish directly from Alaska!

We source our Copper River salmon from hard-working fishermen and women who take great care in fishing sustainably and providing the best fish available. These gorgeous fish build muscle and fat just to be able to run up the mighty Copper River– and the result is a rich, fatty fish with incredible flavor and texture.

It’s also the time of year for our favorite pairing: Copper River salmon and Oregon Pinot Noir! We have some excellent Pinot Noir selections available by the glass or bottle in the Boathouse including:

  • Brittan Vineyards 2015 Pinot Noir, McMinnville, OR 
      • Brittan’s ‘Basalt Block’ bottling shows a fullness and depth of richness that still manages to retain the laser focus on the basalt driven minerality of the estate terroir. Raspberries galore, with pinpoint definition.
  • Smockshop Band 2018 Pinot Noir, Columbia Gorge, OR
      • Master Sommelier, Nate Ready’s focus for Smockshop Band is a biodynamic farming exploration of the Columbia Gorge terroir. This ‘Spring Ephemeral’ bottling of Pinot Noir represents the fleeting transitory nature of spring and displays a silky, elegant balance of wild, tart red and dark berry fruit and rustic earth. Just stunning!
  • Sokol Blosser Estate Rosé 2018, Dundee Hills, OR – from Pinot Noir grapes!
      • Made from 100% estate grown pinot noir grapes, this stunning Rosé features fresh strawberry, pink grapefruit and blood orange with a hint of pepper spicing up the finish.

Make your reservations for the Café or Boathouse to enjoy fresh Copper River King and Sockeye salmon at Seattle’s best waterfront restaurant! And follow our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for new Copper River salmon specials over the next few weeks.
