Bar Cotto

Bar Cotto was the second Ethan Stowell restaurant we tried in Seattle. It's billed as a "Parma-style salumeria and cocktail bar with pizza."  I wasn't sure how SP would feel about trying this place. On the one hand, he really enjoys those kinds of meats. On the other hand, pizza. His love of the meats won.
We made reservations for a Friday evening. It's casual inside, wood tables, bottles of wine and olive oils on shelves. We both ordered wine.  He chose viognier. I chose vermentino.
As expected, SP chose Salumi, Chef's Choice 3 for $18 and opted to include the torta frita:
I think his wood board had mortadella, prosciutto, salami (can't really remember). I tried a bit of prosciutto and ate a lot of his fried dough. They were so good!
We shared Heirloom Tomatoes (Basil, Pecorino, Balsamic). Simple and delicious. I say shared but really I ate most of it while he was eating his meats.
We also shared Parma Pizza (Prosciutto di Parma, arugula, fior di latte, tomato). We both really enjoyed the pizza and ate it all. Thin, crisp crust. Crisp arugula. Salty prosciutto. Just enough cheese and sauce.
For dessert we shared Sorbetto. It was a seasonal flavor and I think it was pomegranate-citrus - ?Whatever it was, it was a bit different and a lot delicious. Plus the little shortbread cookies.

We both really liked our meal at Bar Cotto. Service was great, too. Definitely a place we'd return to the next time we're in Seattle.
