Three Restaurants Open Tonight on Capitol Hill

Posted by on Wed, Oct 5, 2011 at 1:36 PM

While our fair city recently saw a rash of closures, hope springs eternal, and it's springing bigtime on Capitol Hill tonight. Officially grand-opening (click through for more information/speculation):

· Momiji on 12th between Pike and Pine, where Dawson Plumbing used to be

· Bako on Broadway, where the Jade Pagoda used to be

· Altura, also on Broadway, across from Bako

Then tomorrow, Capitol Hill's new distillery Oola opens with a party (free tastes!).

Outside the two-block-ish radius, on Friday, the new incarnation of fancy Campagne—the less fancy (but still probably damn good) Marche—opens down in Pike Place Market with a party, too, with free hors d’oeuvres and sabered bubbly on the patio. What the hell is sabered bubbly? Allow Seattle barman Andrew Bohrer to charmingly demonstrate (listen up, Internet: no one wants to hear you talk!):

"Saber"? He's Spanish?

That video could have been about a minute shorter. Also, I'm going to skip drinking directly from the broken glass.

Also, the Wallingford branch of Casa Azul, the north Seattle Oaxacan restaurant, opened last night. It's in the old Selena's Guadalajara space on 45th.

Unfortunately they have only a limited lunch menu, not the full Oaxacan one that I was hoping for; that's only for dinner. It's probably a good thing, though, because otherwise I would be 300 pounds by Christmas.

Okay... which one will close first? My money is on Bako. Another Asian restaurant? Really? Can't we do something from another continent on the Hill?

A friend of mine fucked her hand up really, really bad doing this. Exploding champagne bottles are not fun.

Why do iPhone users always shoot their videos vertically?
