This neighborhood restaurant atop Queen Anne is the most intimate of those in the Ethan Stowell family. As a nod to the restaurant’s literary namesake, Chef Michael Gifford repeatedly impresses by doing so much from this tiny kitchen. The continually changing, Italian-inspired menu focuses on smaller plates and fresh, daily-made pastas, typically enjoyed family style in the cozy, wood-clad dining room. Stop by the Queen Anne Farmer’s Market before dinner, and you might see Chef Gifford gathering ingredients for that night’s menu. Have dinner at the bar and sip Prosecco while watching the kitchen create.
