Oh hey! 

addo:capitol hill news - 

August will be our last month in the Coffee Flour Lab space.  The upcoming Insanis and Silva on the road were the deciding factors in this move.   Insanis needs to be a crazy menu so it's going to be popping up at different places every time. Silva will be going on tour throughout Washington then across the United States, I want more people to know about Washington and what we have available to us here so yeah! 

Additionally, I'm making a big push for our space in Ballard.  I want that concept to work and go into other places around the city as well and I am actively looking for those spaces.  I'm not sure if that makes sense..... 

The addo Seattle ticketing site will remain the same but you'll just see the address go away and you'll see a lot more experiences popping up that are a  lot more customized.   As an example, I'm going to be doing the beefsteak menu in a place that can handle 100-200 people and do it in the traditional style.  I'm planning things like New Year's Eve, Halloween, and other special events which will launch for sale in August. 

The main stays like themed brunch will live on in Ballard and other spaces as well.  Lechoncito will be starting in the Ballard location where you'll see delivery coming on regular days and lots more in the works for that concept.  

If you like the space in Capitol Hill then book it! I'm going to be adding one more Richard pop-up so stay tuned on that.  I am looking for a permanent space of my own in Capitol Hill just haven't found the right space yet.

Being Indo-Fijian, they are very proud of their very unique heritage. In Fiji, the two main cultures are the Indigenous Fijians and Asian Indians.

Silva will be ending at the end of August in its current form then will move to being at remote locations around the state so book it will you can every Friday and Saturday night in our Capitol Hill space. 

Here is where we are going: 

I'm taking the Silva menu on the road to different areas in Washington.  The menu will depend on the location.   These will be in larger homes that you can choose to stay at for the nights of the dinner.  Yes, I said nights.  

Here's how it works -

Friday arrival:  small bites, drinks, welcoming time
Saturday morning: brunch
Saturday afternoon: light snacks
Saturday evening: nice long tasting menu
Saturday night cap:  snacks and drinks
Sunday morning:  breakfast and go home! 

These will be priced as an all-inclusive thing.  

If you want to travel to one of these places to just have the Saturday night dinner, then that's cool too, there is a separate price for just the Saturday night dinner. 

The trip itself is designed to have a chill feel so sit back, relax, and let us take care of you.  Each place we will stay at will have 4 rooms that will be included in this price. I'm working on prices soon for this.  

Here are the locations and some dates:

- Bellingham (September 28-30, 2018)
- Long Beach (October 12-14, 2018)  
- Olympia (February 2019)
- Spokane (March 2019)
- Walla Walla (March 2019
- Orcas Island (TBD)

All pricing will be sent early next week to addo:rewards members then to everyone else on 8/1/18.  These will be sold directly on my site on when they launch.  Cool!


This upcoming 20 couse tasting menu will be happening from September through November.  There will only be 8 seats per seating and there will be two seatings per night. This will happen on Saturday nights.  Pricing looks like this - 

20 course tasting menu.  
$185 + 20% service charge + tax per person.
$85 beverage pairing
$45 non-alcohol beverage pairing
