We know you love hanging out here at Boundary Bay Brewery, but sometimes, you just need a little change of pace. Maybe you’re in the mood for Italian tonight, but you really, REALLy want a Boundary Bay Oatmeal Stout (or maybe an IPA?). What to do?
Well, if you head down to Pastazza (Bellingham’s first “fresh” pasta restaurant!), you can have it all! Pastázza opened in January, 1997 as one of the pioneer businesses making Barkley Village their home. The proprietors, Fred and Lynn Berman, bring a 14 year history of operating their renowned restaurant, Innisfree, in the foothills of Mt. Baker to this new urban setting. Their same commitment to supporting local sustainable agriculture and a unique, healthful, consistently high quality cuisine has lead to the continuing success of these two innovative restaurateurs.
All of the pasta, soups, sauces, desserts, etc. are made fresh from scratch at Pastázza using the finest ingredients available with an emphasis on organically grown products whenever feasible. The restaurant features vegan and vegetarian options, as well as fresh Northwest fish and seafood.. They serve only fresh Washington grown chicken and all ingredients are conscientiously monitored to prevent the use of preservatives and other chemical additives. An emphasis is also made to eliminate all wastes by composting, recycling, and using thoughtful purchasing decisions.
In their cuisine, Pastázza strives to demonstrate the versatility of pasta, going beyond the traditional Italian or Mediterranean styles. All the desserts at Pastázza are made on premise using fresh creamy butter, organic flour, Washington eggs and dairy products, and, when possible, locally grown berries and fruit and on, any given day, you’re likely to find daily special dishes from seasonal and regional foods. Pastázza makes every effort to create an enjoyable and healthful dining experience for you…they want to feed your soul as well as your body!
You have lots of options when you’re in the mood to enjoy Pastázza: you can dine in, carry out or even take home their fresh pasta, ravioli, sauces, and ready to heat meals for a convenient, quick, and simple to serve meal from your own kitchen! They have a new private dinning room perfect for your next office party, business meeting, dinner party, seminar, or classroom…ask about coming winemaker’s dinners, cooking classes, and special theme dinners! They also provide catering that is customized for your special needs, budget, and style – appetizers to desserts, sack lunches, snacks, formal dinners, Pastázza does it all!
But, best of all, you can score some Boundary Bay Brewery beer to enjoy with your fresh made pasta at Pastázza!
