Shift Change

It won’t be difficult to spot Kate Perry behind the bar at Cicchetti: She’s the one who’s not a guy.

Cicchetti, boozy sibling to Serafina in Eastlake, has a new bartender in the (highly talented) lineup. The Italian cocktail and small plate destination sent along word that Kate Perry, currently tender of the bar at Tango, will be spending her Thursday and Friday nights behind the bar at Cicchetti. She’ll reportedly keep a few shifts over at Tango, the Latin-styled lair of beautiful people at the foot of Capitol Hill.

Cicchetti general manager Rachel Aiken also notes that Perry is a welcome female addition to the all-male bartending team. When you sidle in for a drink, don’t confuse her with the Kate Perry who is the partner at forthcoming Restaurant Bea in Madrona. And let’s not even make the all-too-obvious Katy Perry joke.
