There's about one month left to enjoy the cozy comforts of Dinette on Capitol Hill. After dinner service on December 23, owner/chef Melissa Nyffeler is closing while she scouts for a bigger space.
After eight years of cooking on a four-burner electric stove, Nyffeler feels it's time to move on: "It's bittersweet to leave this space. It's served us so well and become such a home, but it's time to move on. A new space is ripe with possibilities and I am excited to see where we land. Endless possibilities!"
As a final hurrah, and a nod to the intimate apartment dinner parties that inspired her to open her own restaurant, Nyffeler and her staff will be hosting three Sunday Suppers next month, all with different themes:
December 8: Yucatan
December 15: Southern French dinner, ft. cassoulet
December 22: Spanish tapas
These family-style dinners start at 6 pm, are limited to just 36 guests, and cost $40 ( booze and desserts sold separately). Call for reservations: (206) 328-2282.
Nyffeler says when she does eventually find a larger home, the ambience will remain mostly the same, and she has no intention of getting rid of her famous toast, so no worries there.
