The Seattle Times, August 26th 2010: So thoroughly have the three Varchetta brothers re-imagined the relocated Mamma Melina their own mother would hardly recognize the place even though that's her name above the door.<br />The new Mamma Melina, occupying the south end of the Corydon Apartments near University Village, has more in common with the Varchetta's stylish Barolo downtown.<br />On a summer day you'd think it was Rodeo Drive and not the Burke-Gilman Trail that runs alongside the broad front patio. Amid shallow pools holding silver globes that glint in the sun, beautiful people in oversized sunglasses sip wine on thickly cushioned sofas or sup on house-made pasta under canvas umbrellas at white-clothed tables.Price points are moderate and the cooking is assured.<br />

mkt. - pronounced "market" - is an intimate restaurant in an intimate Seattle neighborhood know as Tangletown, between Wallingford and Greenlake. It gets its name from Meridian, the traditional name for the neighborhood; the historic Keystone Building that it’s housed in; and Tangletown, as the area is now known. Joe Ritchie"s kitchen serves thoughtful, contemporary American fare with a dedication to Northwest products.

The Norman’s defined much of what we eat today; some might consider them the original foodies of England and France. When they invaded the British Isles, parts of France, Sicily, North Africa, and the Holy Lands.

Seattle native restaurateurs Chris Matthew Hill and Matt Fleck are capitalizing on their hard-working, infectiously fun personalities, channeling their veteran restaurant skills into what was a sorely missing dining option on the Eastside, an upscale, yet casual restaurant. <br /><br />Stylish and inviting, Matts' design offers a rich blend of cutting edge and glowing décor accents that convey a sense of casualness, comfort and warmth. Choose from a versatile combination of accommodating booths, large round tables, relaxing bar seating, private dining space and a seasonal outdoor patio.

We are a downtown gathering place, where soul-satisfying foods radiate with the intense flavors of seasonal ingredients from our favorite local farmers and producers.<br /><br />Executive chef Craig Hetherington can make tomato soup with griddled cheese sandwich seem just as refined as his Dungeness crab tagliatelle. <br /><br />Pastry chef Will Fausser explores variations on classic desserts such as Theo chocolate cake with marshmallow topping and graham cracker ice cream and milk and cookies. <br /><br />A choice of large or small plates makes exploring and sharing the menu a breeze. <br /><br />Our wines come almost exclusively from the Northwest and are priced to purchase by the glass or bottle. Our beers are also brewed here in the Northwest. <br /><br />We are located at the Seattle Art Museum, which is a block away from the main entrance of Pike Place Market and a short walk from the downtown shopping district.<br />

"The butter-poached cod was delicious, silky-textured, and perfectly cooked!
The French onion soup was so wonderful. The best I've had in a long, long time.
