Rapport Seattle

Rapport Seattle Bar & Kitchen
Capitol Hill
Seattle, WA

Rapport is a very innovative concept: It is a self- pour wine and beer restaurant where the guests visit the 90 some taps of wine and beer and make their own selections by the ounce. It is fun and very interesting and allows for sampling, tasting and enjoyment.

Rapport took over the Starbucks Café space at Broadway & Roy. This space lends itself perfectly to this concept. It is light and airy with plenty of glass with an interesting, contemporary finish.

By the way, Rapport does open at 7 am daily for espresso, pastries, and hand crafted breakfast and lunch items featuring house made biscuits to die for. The space lends itself to socializing with friends and family while still being very Covid safe. The food is very hand crafted and has many favorites like flatbread pizzas, charcuterie, and some marvelous small plates. Everything is really intended for sharing with one another.

This was a great project to work on and we still are involved. We assisted on the real estate, design & construction, financial modeling, business planning, funding, marketing & merchandising, systems & controls, and of course the menu.

We took an existing Australian based concept, Jesters, which is small hand pie concept and then found a high profile location in Bellevue Square. The design and build out are stunning. Working hand in hand with ownership we developed the fillings to meet American taste profiles. Some of the pies offered are a deluxe double cheeseburger, tenderloin steak & mushroom, rosemary chicken, minced beef & mashed potato, just to name a few. Jester pies uses high quality, local and natural ingredients. All menu items are free of artificial flavoring and hand-made fresh to serve to customers. We searched for the “best” staff, trained them thoroughly and developed a full set of operations manuals. The store is to open the end of February. The first of many!
