#1481 #S897 - Artusi, Seattle - 6/27/2011

Artusi is an expansion of the very popular Spinasse under chef Jason Stratton.  But it is not simply an expansion, as Stratton has aimed to make the bar more prominent, with an emphasis on small plates with more modern takes.  The name is an homage to Pellegrino Artusi, the 19th century author of the influential Italian cookbook The Science of Cooking and the Art of Eating Well.

Both the food and cocktails here are very fine, and often off the beaten path.  I had a Pink Hook (Old Overholt Rye, Punt e Mes, maraschino, grapefruit) with the Fra'mani salametto w/marinated fava beans, and Lopez Island clams with Docetto, garlic and bread crumbs
