When in Seattle . . .

. . . eat, drink and be entertained at The Pink Door (Post Alley, Pike
Place Market, Seattle, Washington; but watch for it, there is no sign on
the pink door).
 
Just thinking about it, makes me want to hop on a plane
(business class) and eat my way through a meal of bruschetta del’
estiva – grilled ciabatta bread w/the ripest summer organic heirloom
tomato, basilico trampetti olive oil &  sea salt;  linguine alle
vongole – fresh baby clams, pancetta, garlic, peperoncini & white
wine; cioppino pink door – prawns, mussels, clams, and calamari in a
spicy tomato and white wine broth, and for good measure, spiedini misti –
mixed  grill of chicken, zucchini,  mushrooms, preserved  lemon, giant
croutons, fresh bay leaf &  bell  peppers.

Its like Italia, only in Seattle, and you don’t pay in Euros.  Hungry
yet?

Part Bohemian loft, trattoria, and Pigalle cabaret, The Pink
Door is not just a restaurant, it is an experience; the creation of mia
amica Jacquellina Di Roberto.  And if you get there at the right time,
you’ll see the acrobat swinging on the restaurant’s high trapeze. Check
out the website,
it is delicious too.
