Altura Restaurant to Open October 5, 2011

A welcome addition to the burgeoning dining scene at the North End of Broadway, Altura—meaning ‘hill’ in Italian—offers a refined dining experience in a rustic-elegant setting on Capitol Hill. The restaurant has been carved out of a former retail space in a nearly century-old building featuring 18th- and19th-century European antiques and antique furnishings, exposed fir structural beams and an exposed-brick chimney, and repurposed oak church pews for banquette seating.

Driven by seasonality and local availability, the weekly changing menu showcases artistically presented Italian fare and draws inspiration from the Northwest. Most produce, meat, seafood and foraged items will be sourced locally from Pike Place Market vendors, specialty Italian purveyors, and the sizable vegetable and herb garden the Lockwoods tend at their North Seattle home. Altura offers dinner service Tuesday through Saturday from 5:30 to 10:30 p.m. and is located at 617 Broadway E. on Capitol Hill.
