Rooftop Dinner Series returns for Summer 2015


Bastille Café & Bar is excited to announce the 2015 dates for our rooftop dinners. Due to a sell out series last summer, this year the rooftop dinner series moves to a weekly event, nearly doubling the amount of dinners available over last year.
There will be fourteen Monday 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 5:30pm for a rooftop garden tour with Colin McCrate and Brad Halm of Seattle Urban Farm Company. The tour begins 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 ingredients grown from Bastille’s own Blue Tractor Farm in Redmond. Chef Jason Stoneburner will create the menu each week based what has been recently harvested. Sommelier Kristen Young will present wine pairings for each course.

Chilled Leek Soup - Charred Padrón Pepper / Anise Hyssop
