Located in South Lake Union, Maslow’s by FareStart is a classic American restaurant featuring small and large plates that stand alone or can be shared, created by our renowned chefs alongside FareStart apprentices and served fresh daily for lunch, happy hour and dinner. In addition to the new Burgers + Brews event series, patrons may enjoy one of Seattle’s hottest Happy Hours weekdays from 3 – 6 p.m. with $3 draft beer, $4 draft wine and $5 well liquor selections.
The restaurant takes its name from Abraham Maslow who developed the well-known theory of motivation called the hierarchy of needs. This aligns with the FareStart mission of empowerment and demonstrates the reason for the restaurant – to provide the next level of needs to help move people toward a living wage on their journey to security and self-sufficiency. Every dollar of profit from Maslow’s is reinvested in programs to recruit, train and support its students and apprentices.
