Pondering the Pink Door

The Pink Door\'s Antipasti Plate

One of our perennial favorites for outdoor dining is the long-running Pink Door, where the Antipasto of the House platter never fails to delight with a lovely array of shareable foods: tapenade and bean salad, roasted red peppers and grilled veggies, fresh mozzarella and prosciutto.

The fruit- and vegetable-decorated oilcloths that festoon the tables add a festive touch to what I’ve referred to in my “Pike Place Market Cookbook” as “a garden party with 100 of your most attractive friends.”

Here’s the Pink Door’s spicy rendition of Squid Ink Spaghetti del Pescatore brimming with a boatload of shrimp, calamari, clams and mussels.

And here’s the Fish of the Day. . .halibut in a tomato-y sauce teaming with Market-fresh veggies.

Swordfish with Grilled Eggplant and Green Pesto was another toothsome dish that we savored under the stars. . .
