Happy Hour at Barolo

07-Mar-2009
 
 
 
 
One of my favorite Happy Hours in town is at Barolo Ristorante.  All food on the bar menu is 1/2 off; pints of beer are $3; and glasses of featured wine are $3.50 or you can buy the bottle for $14. 
 
 
 
 
On the menu you’ll find substantial choices like the risotto, gnocchi and a burger among other items; or plates that are good for sharing like the antipasto, fried calamari or mussels.  The specially priced wines are one of the best values in town.  I normally choose the red, although they also offer a white and a rosé.  Last night’s red was a lovely southern Rhône, J. Vidal-fleury Côtes Du Ventoux. 
 
 
 
 
The only negative thing about Barolo’s Happy Hour is that it is wildly popular.  Arriving between 4:00 pm and 4:30 pm is the only way to be assured of a seat.  And even then, on days when it seems all of Seattle has skipped out of work a couple hours early, finding a seat can be challenging.
