For those of us this year who have a few last minute holiday presents to pick out, Café Lago has added a simple yet delicious line-up of Pacific Northwest favorites to choose from in a mini pop-up.
Green Italian Plum Jam ($20): Ayak Gordon’s jam made from fruit from Yakima.
Taki’s Organic English Walnuts ($8 lb): harvested in 2014.
Café Lago Panforte ($30): a 24 year old tradition of “strong bread” resembling a fruit pie, as featured in Seattle Magazine.
Not only does the Café boast a wood fire oven, but also a classy bar located on the side of the restaurant. Soft, white light flows from the windows, creating a perfect holiday ambiance throughout. The featured items above are sure not to disappoint, especially when accompanied by an evening at Café Lago.
Polenta Night: To engage people and create excitement around food, the Café is creating a special night out of something simple, as creator and polenta queen Arianna Garella says. [We’re] creating meals that have a lot of love and time that go into them without it being a pretentious thing, Garella says. Come join the restaurant and order yourself a plate of American grits on a cold evening night.
