Weekend Sparkles

Weekend Sparkles Happy Saturday! Be out and enjoy summer! xoxo – SADV

Seattle Scene. eat.v9

Seattle Scene. eat.v9 This is Seattle Scene. eat. v9. Hello again. The duo is back. Myself and guest blogger {Savanna} try a new Seattle hot spot for our reoccurring feature – the Seattle Scene. At the firm that we work at, we are part of a team that researches/markets Hospitality {restaurants, hotels, spas}. Our assignment is to try out new restaurants and see what the current and future design trends are, especially in the Seattle market {see last blog post – Seattle Scene. eat v8}. We are looking from a designer’s point of view, but the food is a nice bonus. Yesterday we ventured to Broadway and dined at Corretto – Trattoria and Bar.

Corretto

Corretto opened its doors mid April of this year. The popular Foodie Source site Eater recommended this restaurant to us via it’s Eater Hot Map. Owner Travis Rosenthal launched the new trendy Italian restaurant in the Spring in Seattle’s East Broadway area. Executive Chef Laura Licona joins his team and adds her twist on Italian comfort food to the mix. Corretto translates to “corrected coffee” where Corretto bar pairs espresso with Italian grappa, amari, and other Italian liquors. Here is a glimpse…

A stylish cafe by day and an Italian restaurant by night; the vibe of the Corretto is eclectic chic. Many antique finds decorate the space, which is a trend we see in a lot of Seattle’s restaurants. A handsome Gentleman’s navy blue is seen throughout the space and paired with the Modern Vintage graphic black and white wallpaper.

What did we eat?

Antipasti – Bruschetta Cannellini {white bean pate, balsamic tomato salsa, crisped leeks, grilled crostini}
Primi /Pasta – Gnocchi Al Pesto {fresh gnocchi and our waiter substituted our sauce}
Secondi/Entree – Agnello {three lamb chops, farro, pickled fennel, arugula, toasted almonds, basil oil}
Dessert – Limoncello Cheesecake {amaretti brown butter crust, seasonal berries}
