Sometimes, you need a big bowl of pasta and nothing’s going to stand in your way. Not even if the restaurant doesn’t serve pasta. Luckily, Grappa, an Italian/Greek wine bar in Queen Anne, understands this (and they do serve pasta). Grappa takes reservations, serves somewhat affordable burrata and pesto gnocchi, and is just dark enough for the mood to feel special but it’s light enough so that you can still show off the balayage that Rochelle just did for you.
