Ticket alert: Bastille Summer Rooftop Dinner Series on Sale April 15
Oh snap, this Friday snatch up tickets to Ballard’s most coveted dinner spot bathed in summer sun. Bastille historically sells out of its summer dinner series, so this year there will be 28 Monday and Tuesday evening dinners—twice as many chances for Olympic Mountain views as last year. The evening begins with a cocktail and rooftop garden tour about 45 minutes before the communal dinner, which starts at 6:30. Chef Jason Stoneburner’s menu will be based on the week’s local harvest, but expect dishes like chilled leek soup, cured King salmon with slow-roasted sun gold tomatoes, grilled short rib with sweet peas and spicy radish, and Bing cherry tarte tatin for dessert. Tickets are $165 and go on sale Friday at 9am.
