Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Rigatoni
Rigatoni
$$, Full Bar, Italian, Downtown
"I swear I'm not biased since I've cooked over 800 of these and tasted it more times then I could calculate. Sausage is perfectly spicy the marjoram takes it to next level and it's topped with Parm!! That's why it's called the KING!! Must have in Seattle."
Soft boiled eggs
$$, Happy Hour, Modern, American, Seafood, Italian, West Queen Anne
"I love this snack! I always want to order more and not eat anything else. The aioli changes sometimes, but there is always the pairing of the perfectly cooked soft egg and aioli with something zippy like capers."
Spaghetti
$$, Full Bar, Italian, Downtown
"The pasta is combined with anchovies, garlic, and chili. I've always loved pasta, and this is my favorite when I go to Tavolata. Chef Brandon Kirksey squeezes lots and lots of flavor out of a few simple ingredients."
