The Pike-Pine Corridor also hosts several food truck enterprises turned brick and mortar cafes like Rancho Bravo Tacos – which started within a trailer in a north Seattle neighbourhood – and Skillet, which launched in a roving truck and has quickly become the hip breakfast spot in this trendiest of locales.
Several other surprises have also arrived. Cascina Spinasse proffers the city’s finest homemade pastas for all to see in the open kitchen. The Menu Degustazione, (a tasting menu served family-style) blows people away, though it may prove challenging to stand at dinner’s end, let alone walk back down Pine.
When the sun sets, the Pike-Pine Corridor fills with revellers to create Seattle’s primary nocturnal environment. But day or evening, weekday or weekend, you can still hoof it up the hill for a leisurely food crawl across the city’s coolest hood.
