Bastille Café & Bar is excited to announce the 2016 dates for our popular rooftop dinners. Due to a sell out series last summer, this year the rooftop dinner series moves to a twice-weekly event, doubling the amount of dinners available over last year.
There will be twenty-eight Monday and Tuesday evening dinners between June and September, each starting with a rooftop garden tour and featuring a multi-course, family-style meal with wine pairings.
Guests can arrive at 5:45pm for a rooftop tour beginning in the bar with a Rooftop Garden inspired cocktail to sip while exploring the garden. Guests are seated for dinner under a cabana overlooking the ship canal at 6:30pm.
The family-style meals will highlight rooftop produce and local ingredients grown by select purveyors from the Ballard Farmer’s Market. Chef Jason Stoneburner will create the menu each week based on what has been recently harvested. Sommelier Kristen Young will present wine pairings for each course.
