Heynow's Reviews
 
Opened in June of 2009 and housed in an historic 1920’s building in Seattle’s Old Ballard neighborhood, Bastille Café & Bar is a bustling homage to a Parisian brasserie. Owners Deming Maclise and James Weimann scoured Paris flea markets and local salvage stores for vintage accessories to create a truly authentic feel. From the white subway tiles, antique mirrors, and Paris Metro clock to the zinc-topped bar and stunning crystal chandelier that takes center stage in the Back Bar; they’ve truly hit the mark. Chef Jason Stoneburner creates French focused cuisine inspired by the abundance of seasonal product found locally---and it doesn’t get any more local than the restaurants 4500-square-foot organic rooftop garden. The wine list is French focused with a smattering of NW wines and the bar offers an extensive collection of absinthe.

<br />Discover the sun-drenched cuisine of Southern Italy and Sicily at Agrodolce. The causal and welcoming trattoria nestled in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood features Italy’s coastal cuisine and expertly created handmade pasta made with the finest organic and sustainable ingredients in the Pacific Northwest.<br /> <br />The third restaurant from James Beard Award-winning chef Maria Hines, Agrodolce is inspired by her love for the Mediterranean coast and her culinary and cultural travels to Italy. Certified organic by Oregon Tilth, Agrodolceworks with local farmers, fishermen, foragers and ranchers and pairs its cuisine alongside approachable wines from the Northwest and Italy.<br />

"Agrodolce is a nice little neighborhood joint, located in the space that formerly housed the 35th street bistro. The location is nice, lots of natural light filtering through the plate glass windows, but could use some major updating. The floors are very badly worn and the carpeting in the back area is threadbare and dirty. It was quiet on a Friday, not a good sign for any restaurant. Early in the night, servers gathered around the hostess stand to chat. Not really professional. Our server was nice and responsive, but her command of the menu and wine list was not great. With the negatives out of the way, I really have to praise the food here. Nothing on the menu is especially innovative, but everything tasted very good."
