Seattle: Dinner at The Pink Door

Negroni

I was in Seattle last month for a wedding. As part of the bachelorette party, we hit up The Pink Door which is one of the bride’s favorite Italian restaurants.

The Pink Door is in Post Alley near Pike Place. You identify it by its pink door. Duh.

They have a specialty cocktail list but decided to go with a Negroni. It was quite perfect on the balmy night. We had a view of the ocean and could hear strains of the Friday night market band.

The restaurant sent out platters of cured meats and marinated veggies (not shown) along with heirloom tomato bruschetta for this fun bach party meal. This was a fab way to start the meal. I was particularly in love with the olives.

Since I was in Seattle, I try to get in as much seafood as possible. I was delighted to be there in the summer and was excited to try the Dungeness crab risotto with corn. It was a tiny bit too watery for me. I would have liked the risotto to be thicker. But there’s no denying the sweetness of the crab, corn and cherry tomatoes.

I did have food envy over the pasta bolognese. The ragu looked great!

We didn’t linger since we had more bach festivities but next time I’d like to try lunch or brunch on the patio.
