Four Things to Know About Bacco Cafe

  • Its wine bar features varietals from local microwineries.
  • Owner Heong Soon Park also runs Cha:n. The Korean fusion eatery is just downstairs from Bacco.

The Tasting Room

Seattle's bustling Pike Place Market might be the last place you'd expect to find an authentic European-style wine cave. But that's exactly what guests to The Tasting Room Seattle find at this tasting cellar nestled between Stewart and Virginia Streets. But while the elegant surrounds might feel distinctly European, the vintages all hail from much closer to home. All of the wines served at this shop––and its sister location in Yakima Valley––come from Washington producers, and each winery featured (Harlequin Wine Cellars and Wilridge Winery, to name a few) is winemaker-owned. To help customers become acquainted with the artisan wines from their home state, the staff offers tastings of current releases and a few library wines, and presents a selection of salumi and cheeses from around the world, with recommendations for pairing or dunking.

Clever Bottle's mixologists and charcuterie chefs source local gourmet ingredients from Pike Place Market for a menu of appetizers, libations, and desserts. Crafted in-house, a selection of bitters house-made with bluebell flowers, chocolate, and the personality of sunshine adds spice to the ever-shifting menu of cocktails. The wine list, which is made up of 98% Seattle varietals, serves as a flavorful guide to the many local wineries that populate it. Abundant candlelight sets a romantic tone for quiet dates or proposals that involve serenading a sweetheart with a champagne flute.

Head chef Jon Martinson and owner-sommelier David Soper incorporate fresh local ingredients into a menu brimming with unique tapas, flatbread pizzas, and other seasonal bites. Warm up with an order of rosemary-brown-butter roasted nuts ($5), or submerge tooth divers in the Cajun sweet corn and crab dip ($6). For the main course, shareable small-portion tapas entice diners with a spectrum of unique tastes. Mussels perform tableside feats of strength with a topping of red curry dashi, coconut milk, and miso butter ($8), and grilled flank steak teams up with a locavore-pleasing Clover Farm mushroom and spring-onion bread pudding ($12). At lunch, Nanny’s margherita flatbread tut-tuts unruly hunger ($6), and a mouthwatering pulled-pork sandwich served on a soft bolillo roll dives playfully into tomatillo-ancho chili sauce ($10).
