A new French/Italian restaurant just opened their doors in East Ballard; Joli is locatedin West Woodland at the corner of NW 65th St and 7th Ave NW. They’ll be hosting a grand opening party this Saturday, Sept. 23 from 6 to 10 pm, celebrating with bubbles, hors d’oeuvres and special food and drink menus.
The 52-seat restaurant, according to Seattle Eater, is the newest venture from chef Amy Beaumier (formerly of Bell & Whete and Local 360) and is inspired by the French-Italian Riviera. “Beaumier will oversee a menu of ‘light and fun’ vegetable-centric, colorful Mediterranean dishes for nightly dinner service. An early dish in the works consists of preserved lemon and ricotta cavatelli and locally sourced vegetables,” Eater reports. The wine list will be curated by Chris Yamka from Toulouse Petite, and there will be chocolate dessert options from Chocolat Vitale.
Joli’s hours are Tuesday to Saturday from 4 to 10pm, with happy hour from 4 to 6pm.
