The B-Town Blog received this from our friends at Advertiser Bistro Baffi Monday. We also talked to them last week about what’s new at Bistro Baffi, but first the email:
Our Chef Michael is celebrating his Birthday on May 19Th . For this week he decided to offer youÂ a discount on his fresh homemade pappardelle pasta , with wild porcini and king oyster mushrooms, served with truffle oil and Alfredo sauce. This week only this pasta will be $20 (regular price is $30).
Bring your date and have a romantic dinner on our garden patio, or bring your family and friends and enjoy first summer like days at Bistro Baffi!
If you are celebrating a Birthday this week as well, please let our chef Michael know. He will be happy to offer you a complimentary Sambuca or Limoncello or Grappa with your Birthday Tiramisu.
We caught up with Chef Michael Vujovich and his wife Dinka last week at their restaurant in the Seahurst neighborhood of Burien (15217 21st Ave SW). They didn’t mention Michael’s birthday, but they did tell us about nightly pasta specials recently added to the menu. These homemade pastas are made fresh everyday by Chef Michael and displayed in a tray of specials and appetizers. TheseÂ homemade pastasÂ include:
- Lobster Ravioli
- Special Cannelloni Served when Chef Michael can find the meats:
- Wild Game
- Wild Boar
Dinka and Michael are especially proud of their servers. Dinka tells us that “Chef Michael has shared his knowledge of wines with our servers, and every night before dinner, he prepares them for the pairing of entrees and wine choices. They are very knowledgeable. ” Each night, they will present not only the menu to you and your dining companions, but a specially prepared tray of antipasti and pasta specials.
After Chef Michael’s birthday celebration, he will be leaving for a two-week trip to Italy and Montenegro. The trip is both pleasure to see old friends in Roma and perhaps play some soccer…and to meet with his new winery Bibiano in Tuscany. Bibiano will be the exclusive Italian winery bottling Baffi’s own San Giovese and Chianti “house wines.”Â In Montenegro, he plans to help his friends and chefs open his restaurant for the season onÂ The Adriatic Sea.
Bistro Baffi will remain open with Chef Thomas McCafertty preparing all your favorites from Bistro Baffi. Chef Thomas has been working side by side with Chef Michael. “He’s very skilled,” said Chef Michael. He’s also attended cooking school in Rome and worked in Rome and Paris.
Voted Best Italian Restaurant in Seattle by City Search in 2009, and Best Italian in Burien by the Highline Times, Bistro Baffi is open Monday-Saturday starting at 4pm.
Reservations are recommended on the weekends at 206-244-0737 or online at www.bistrobaffi.com.
