Italian restaurant Due Cucina is opening a second Seattle-area location next month.
For the last four years, the restaurant has operated out of a space in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. Although a date has not yet been confirmed, it’s likely that the doors to the new Village at Totem Lake location in Kirkland will open during the latter half of December.
“We appeal to foodies and discerning diners who love Italian food but don’t want to break the bank to eat it,” said co-founder Davide Macchi in a press release. “They can taste the depth of flavors and authenticity of our dishes, which they crave. We have always known that our vision for Due Cucina and our strategic plan called for replication and expansion. We think that high volume, urban and suburban locations are the right fit for our growth. The profile of the tenants at the Village at Totem Lake are the right mix of like-minded quality brands that share our sensibility. The outdoor-oriented design of Totem Lake and the demographic diversity of Kirkland will draw a wide range of age groups.”
Filippo Fiori, Due Cucina’s co-founder and executive chef, added in the release that the restaurant will continue to hold firm to the tenets of the “slow food” movement, which ensures everything offered (aside from the bread) is made from scratch.
