Description

Capitol Hill’s glut of new construction may now dominate the block, but this agreeably low-lit space—weathered wooden walls, whitewashed ceiling—feels like it’s been around forever. The current incarnation has actually existed since just 2011, when the owners of Belltown’s Bang Bang Cafe took over Pettirosso, added a large dining room in back, and installed a menu that’s equally friendly to carnivores and vegetarians. The vegan mac and cheese is more savory than cheddary, but absolutely deserving of its fan base, while the espresso stands out even in a neighborhood full of excellent coffee. By noon the crowd of table seekers has usually spilled to the sidewalk—a strong statement in a neighborhood brimming with great patios.
