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.
