Congratulations to Amaro Bistro!
Congratulations to Bothell's Amaro Bistro for getting a great write up and review in the Seattle Times recently.


"Chances are good that many who proposed decades ago over rack of lamb at 40-year-old Pike Place Market mainstay Il Bistro, or assuaged a broken heart at the bar of that amber-lit grotto, are now raising kids in the suburbs, maybe even welcoming grandkids. Amaro Bistro, the Eastside sister spot, is for them.


You'll find this lively Italian restaurant and bar anchoring a corner of Six Oaks, a new residential/retail complex in Bothell, where a building boom is under way. Amaro's owner is Bothell resident Nick Wiltz, who 10 years ago bought Il Bistro."
