Maria Hines has released details about the opening night of Agrodolce, her anticipated new restaurant in Fremont. The Italian-inspired eatery at 709 N. 35th St. launches this Friday, December 21, on the Mayan-predicted end of the world. To go down in style, Hines is presenting a four-course prix-fixe menu and bringing in entertainment from the Fremont Drum School.
Guests are encouraged to take the dining experience to the next level by dressing as their spirit animal of choice. Hines is all for witty interpretations of the dress code, explaining, "I saw a bumper sticker that said 'My spirit animal is whiskey.'" If you're feeling inspired to become your inner cat, owl, or distilled spirit over a dinner of hand-cut tagliarini and lamb meatballs, call ahead. Reservations for the evening are required.
Assuming the human race continues through the holidays, Il Corvo owner Mike Easton has some good news.
Seattle Met reports that Easton is hosting a six course New Year's Eve dinner a week shy of his pasta shop's reopening in new Pioneer Square digs. The odds of space remaining for the evening's two seatings lesson by the second, so if you want a place or two at the table call now and cross your fingers. More details about the meal are at the Il Cover blog over here.
