Movie Night - What We Do in The Shadows, Spaghetti Night, 3/21

Spaghetti, treats, and popcorn.  Beer and wine will be sold separately.  (Click)

Smorrebrod 3/24 and 4/22

I have visited Denmark a few times and I fell in love with these sandwiches.  They are traditionally open faced and served over rye.  If you've been to brunch then you'll notice that's pretty much what we serve with different types of breads so we're doing a dinner version at our Ballard space.   In Copenhagen there are smorrebrod places that have tasting menus attached to them so that's what we're going to do!  If this sells well this will end up being a mainstay at the Ballard location as a nod to strong Nordic heritage in the area.  Fun times (click)

You'll notice something about pricing for the space in Ballard as well.  No service charge.   The only add-ons to price you'll see will be tax and for supplements (if they make sense).  This way you'll be able to have a more transparent look at costs for an experience before you get to check out. 

We are in the process of organizing a lot of new experiences at this space and collaborations with chefs as well.  Looking forward to sharing that with you soon!   Also, chef Charlotte Glaves will be working with addo at the space a lot so make sure you say hi when you see her!  Lots of fun things in the works!

Lechoncito - NEW DATES ADDED!

This is the name of the restaurant that I will be launching for Puerto Rican food in Seattle.  It's been a process so far to dial things in and get to a point where I can see there is actually a demand for Puerto Rican food here.  Growing up in Olympia there wasn't any options for it and currently there is just one Puerto Rican restaurant in Seattle so I think it's time for another so more people can have rad food.

FOCUS MENU - Thursday dinner series

I'm constantly looking at what sells, what doesn't and how to keep things new and exciting.  Frankly, the 15 course tasting menu doesn't sell well on Thursday's and it makes complete sense why.  I'm going to be featuring a 7 course menu that ranges between $65-$85 + tax + service charge that gives me even more flexibility but dials in a specific theme for each.  What themes you ask?

Vegetarian, 7 course tasting menu on 3/8 (click)
Vegan, 7 course tasting menu on on 3/15 (click)
Beefsteak, all-you-can eat, on 3/22 (click)  Inspiration (click)
