Ventured out to the "New Seattle" last night. That is what I call South Lake Union. You seriously must run on down there- if you haven't already. Brightly lit shops, inviting restaurants, a bustle of people, great architecture. (Can you tell I liked it?)
I dined at Cuoco. A newer Tom Douglas eatery. It was delicious! The ambiance was warm. The service was superb. The food? Fantastic!
I shared with my sister in law:
20 month aged parma proscuitto, honey crisp apples, arugula
Roasted beets, mache, almonds, goat cheese, apples, cider vinaigrette
Bucatini - hollow dried wheat pasta, marinara, brasied beef meatballs
Had planned on leaving some to snack on today but I couldn't stop myself. It was that good!
Agnolotti dal plin - house-made filled pinched egg pasta, rabbit, veal, pork, marjoram butter
Tiny, delicate bow tie raviolis. Simple and perfect.
**If you or someone you love must eat gluten free, they have a gf pasta that can be used as a substitute in almost any dish. That makes us smile in this house.
Give Cuoco a try on your next night out. Happy Weekend. xoxoxo
