The Pink Door - Seattle, WA - Saturday Snapshots

     Recently, our son generously offered to treat us to dinner out. He said he'd act as chauffeur, and he knew just the place he wanted us to go -- The Pink Door Restaurant in downtown Seattle. He'd heard they had good Italian food, but the main attraction was the trapeze act! So we set a date and went. 
     Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get a photo of the trapeze performer. She twirled and twisted high above the tables in the main dining room, and did her contortions while clinging to a length of fabric. Reminiscent of Cirque du Soleil. Amazing! However, here's a photo of the restaurant's simple exterior. 

You'd think the restaurant's entrance was the door lit with a pink light, right? Nope. It's the door flanked by corn husks with the tiny oval "sign" to its left. The restaurant is located in Post Alley at Pike Place Market. 

Here's the view from our table on the covered terrace. I couldn't believe someone was actually standing on that balcony, playing the guitar. Turns out it was a mannequin. That's the Seattle Great Wheel on the waterfront in the background.

I copied this info from the restaurant's website:

By the way, the food was good. We took advantage of the Seattle Restaurant Week menu and had a three-course meal, paired with appropriate wines. A nice evening out.
