#2666 #S1293 - Spaghetti Western, Seattle - 12/3/2014

Update: Spaghetti Western closed in March 2015

I very much liked La Bete, owner, chef and CIA graduate Aleks Demitrijevic's previous restaurant in this location. So I approached Spaghetti Western with mixed feelings, including curiosity, as usual when a placed that is always packed when I try to get in suddenly closes. And that's not to mention the odd combination of BBQ with specialized Italian pasta dishes. In addition to indulging his interest in smoked meats, Demitrijevic seems to be aiming at driving more business out of the limited space -- for which the rent increased 33% in his 4 years there -- by delivering something more conducive to take-out. Preview articles have also noted an increase emphasis on cocktails, so who's complaining?

I've lost my notes on my cocktail from this visit but I remember remember enjoying it. For food I enjoyed the spaghetti this time, although a glance at the patters of BBQ coming out of the kitchen made me revise this plan for the next visit. It seems like another swell joint in this space.
