Microsofties’ Capitol Hill restaurant scores good review

I’d heard raves about Artemis Cafe & Bar from a few people at Microsoft. The new Capitol Hill restaurant is the effort of Microsofties Oscar Velasco and Boris Gorodnitsky.

In his review today, Seattle Weekly’s Jonathan Kauffman is pleasantly surprised at the software guys’ first effort in the restaurant biz, writing at some length about the “recipe for failure” that is “well-funded food lovers with no restaurant experience who chuck great careers to open their own bistro.” That doesn’t appear to be the case at this Mediterranean-themed spot.

Our own Karen Gaudette checked in with Artemis and Chef Chris Hunter in September (second item).

I wonder how long before Velasco and Gorodnitsky get on board with the Microsoft PRIME card to drum up more business. Though from Kauffman’s description, it sounds like they hardly need it.
