This week's top hits from Eater Seattle, Curbed's sibling bar, restaurant, and nightlife blog.
THE SHUTTER— News broke on two closings this week. First up, Madison Park's Cafe Parco has shuttered. Owner Celinda Norton, who worked in the kitchen seven days a week since the restaurant launched in 2011, says, "the time has come to bid you a farewell" to the "economically challenged" business. And downtown, after four decades Bruno's has closed up shop. Per a sign posted on the door of the hybrid Italian/Mexican restaurant, owner Bruno Mazzarella has retired.
HEATMAP—A new month means it's time to update to Eater's restaurant Heatmap. September's addition includes Pizzeria Gabbiano in Pioneer Square. The Sicilian-style pie shop from Il Corvo's Mike Easton sells pizza cut with scissors that's sold by the kilo. Check out the map for more details and other solid options for dinner this weekend.
CAPITOL HILL—Trove, the new Korean barbecue/noodle counter/bar/ice cream parfait window from Rachel Yang and Seif Chirchi (Joule, Revel) debuts next weekend. Take a tour of the 4,000-square-foot space which will include a lit up diorama of an erupting Mt. Rainier and hand-drawn wallpaper, before doors open on (or around) September 12.
