In an amber-lit corner of Capitol Hill, Tidbit Bistro invites neighborhood noshers and sustenance seeking travelers to enjoy a seasonal menu of Spanish and Italian salads, soups, entrees, and tapas, which Evening Magazine rated the best in western Washington. Satiate straight-shooting taste buds with the traditional albondigas, a spherical mishmash of beef and pork supplemented by a tomato sauce ($10), or continue the fight against lactose intolerance with the warmed chevre, topped with tomato sauce and capered walnuts ($8). More expansive entrees, such as the cordero a la plancha grilled lamb, a marinated leg of lamb served with herbed potato cake, whole grain mustard allioli and olive tapenade ($24), attract selections from Tidbit’s voluminous wine list, which includes many local wines. Post-grazing, Tidbit’s grappa menu offers a finale more indulgent than detailing the plot lines of your recurring dreams to strangers.
