One of our favorite, and one of the most highly regarded, Belltown eateries, Bisato, is closing its doors after dinner service on October 14. James Beard award winning chef, and Seattle native, Scott Carlsberg indicates in his press release announcing the closure that he is looking to take a break after working nightly for nearly 20 years, and is considering writing a book.
The establishment is definitely going out on top. Just in August of 2012, Bisato was named one of the 50 Best Emerging Italian Restaurants in the WORLD by Restaurant Magazine, and has in the past won many awards and praises including being a 2010 recipient of Mobil’s Four-Star Award, and the #1 New Dish of 2010 for its Orange Confit with Chocolate Caramel Mousse, as selected by Seattle Met.
From now until closing on Ocotober 14, Chef Carlsberg plans on producing a “fan favorites” menu. Bisato uses a “small plates” format to provide fine dining at a lesser price than a full entree elsewhere. Seattle Oasis Vacation Rentals team favorites, which we hope will make Chef Carlsberg’s cut, include the Octopus Puttensca and the Lamb Chops. If you are in town, and can make it to Bisato, I highly recommend it. It is a world class eating experience.
