Pasta Freska chef skips menus for personalized dining experience

Chef Mike Horri gets to know each customer before making a custom meal for them.

Looks can be deceiving, but don't be fooled by the unassuming building which houses Pasta Freska. This Italian restaurant in Seattle's South Lake Union neighborhood serves up one of the most unique dining experiences in the city.

Instead of choosing items from a menu, Chef Mike Horri creates a custom meal based on your likes and dislikes. He stops by each table and gets to know every customer before whipping up an incredible feast in the kitchen. It's this personal approach, mixed with great tasting food, that's kept people coming back for nearly 20 years.

On the day Evening stopped by, Chef Mike made shrimp and mussels in a pesto white wine sauce, stuffed chicken marsala, pasta bolognese and his famous eggplant lasagna. You definitely won't leave hungry.
