SHORT ORDER: Beyond the Bridge Cafe, Morso and the appeal of televised food shows

By Volcano Staff on August 18, 2010


Open For Business: Beyond the Bridge Café has finally completed its transition from Sumner to Tacoma's Sixth Avenue and, for little over a week, has been serving tasty espresso drinks beginning at 6:30 a.m. Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. on the weekend. Owners Ben and Trish Rubke have moved into the space formerly occupied by Il Fiasco (2717 Sixth Ave.), replaced the yellow-ish walls with dark colors and amazing hand-painted art and serve homemade soups, quiches, and the BBC's infamous and ever-popular bagel sandwiches. Next month the music shows kick in with the Warehouse folks hosting a show Sept. 13 followed by Vicci Martinez Sept. 24-25 (the final days of BBC's official grand opening party week).

Nice: Morso in Gig Harbor offers smoked trout crostini with a glass of Rodney Strong Chardonnay for $10 this week.

Future Things Are Coming: Speaking of Morso, the wine bar will host a Bisol Prosecco four-course lunch pairing on their patio Saturday, Aug. 21 at 1 p.m. The cost is $40. Reserve your spot at 253.530.3463.
