Baccano (Seattle) Pleasantly surprised

Although I'd seen the big fairly new place on Western north of the market, I never would have gone without an Entertainment card discount. And we were quite pleased.

The place itself reminds me of Las Vegas - overdone, and would probably be very noisey but it was a Sunday nite and they were empty - like only a couple of tables taken.

My partner and I split 2 entrees. One was good, the other great. The good one was a chicken breast, served with some nice roasted veggies and a nice sauce. Can't remember the name of it but they called the sauce something like Genovesee.

The other dish was a baked ziti and it was great. It reminded me of the kind of hearty Italian pastas I used to eat at the cheap places in my neighborhood in the Lower East Side of NY. It was a meat sauce with cheese and quite a large serving.

Bread came with a decent bean and gorgonzola dip (and we asked for and got good olive oil). Prices were decent (especially with the entertainment card). The Zita was in the $13 range the chicken $15. Had lots of wines by the glass - I made one stupid mistake. I'm used to narrowing it down between 2 wines, getting a little sip of each and making my choice. So I asked for small tastes of my top 2 choices and got rather large tastes. I almost didn't order a glass since I had enough but I felt that was tacky. Until I got the bill and realized they offered small glasses called Tastes. Oh well, spent about $6 more than I planned but....

Anyway, they also have a private room and might suggest that my firm go there for our after tax-season lunch (we're an accounting firm).
