Some more details on the gnocchi bar chef Lisa Nakamura plans to open somewhere in Seattle.
Back in September, when word spread that Allium was closing, she told Eater that her next plan was to open a restaurant that was "super casual, counter service, featuring, of course, as much local as possible." In November, she revealed the name was going to be Gnocchi Bar, and now, Seattle Met has word that she'll be using the same loan-generated service that Mike Easton used to raise money for his forthcoming pizzeria.
Nakamura is hoping for a late summer opening...somewhere...possibly South Lake Union.
