The Pink Door Restaurant Review

: Tucked into one of Seattle’s quaint alleyways just north of Pike Place Market, the Pink Door’s peachy-pink entrance can be hard to find, but is well worth the hunt. The restaurant sports a two-story dining room decorated with a jumble of ornate mirrors, mismatched silver candlesticks, and exotic murals. A bar suspended high above tables is used by a trapeze artist who entertains on random nights. On other evenings, a fortune teller has been known to hold consultations at a corner table. During summer months, diners crowd the rooftop patio with views looking over Elliott Bay. Antipasti include a trio of crostini featuring fava bean purée, baby artichokes and fresh mushrooms. We recommend the squid ink risotto with bell pepper and fennel, and lasagna lovers will enjoy the individual casserole featuring fresh spinach noodles layered with a trio of sauces: creamy béchamel, pesto and zesty marinara. Consider sharing a pasta dish for your first course and then choose a mixed grill, scallopine or tomato-and-wine-scented cioppino as your main. End on a sweet note with a classic tiramisu or a trio of crème brûlées. The wine list roams the Pacific Northwest.
