Met 2 girlfriends last evening @ the New 'Bar North' which is adjacent to North @ Kierland Commons. (The old News Cafe)
It was much quieter than North with a very limited menu. A antipasti menu w/ many small choices ....$3 and up, bruchetta, stromboli, salads and panini.
They have a separate wood oven than the restaurant.
Bar North offers about 30 wines by the glass and a full bar. It is a very pretty space....open with a large patio with couches and small tables.
The Bartender told me they have a DJ on the weekends.
Unfortunately we only sampled bruchetta...one w/ proscuitto figs and marcapone...similar to Il postino...
It was a beautiful evening which probably added to the ambiance and experience. I woud definitely return!
Has anyone else been? Tried any of the other menu items?
