Seattle Weekly's Description
Chef Scott Carsberg ran Lampreia for a decade before relocating his gorgeous, complicated plates to the menu at the studiously casual Bisato, the recession-driven successor to the media darling. The food's terribly impressive, although it often seems nobody's as impressed as Carsberg, who's invested far more thought in plate presentation than the guest experience, which is often sadly blah. Still, tolerating tepid service is sometimes a fair trade for a stunning veloute.
Tips from foursquare
Polished Venetian-style small plates are memorable in both flavor and presentation. Sit at the bar to watch the kitchen team, and the shiny red meat slicer, at work. [Eater 38 Member]
Breezily elegant Venetian-style snack bar, complete with exposed kitchen, a mix of counter and table seating and a menu of roughly two dozen exquisitely crafted small plates priced from $6-$12.
Artfully composed plates hold small bites, but since nothing tops $12 you still feel like you’re getting away with murder. Cocktails are sophisticated to match.
Try the asparagus risotto.
Everything is delicious, but try the Branzino for sure.
