Volterra adds all day happy hour + weekday lunch

Polenta and Wild Mushrooms

Ballard’s Tuscan-inspired restaurant, Volterra, is expanding its meal periods beginning today. Previously offering weekend brunch and happy hour and six nights a week dinner, owners Chef Don Curtiss and Michelle Quisenberry are adding weekday lunch to serve the growing demand of visitors, residents and businesses in Ballard. Along with that, the previous 3-6 p.m. happy hour is moving to an all day happy hour of 12-6 p.m. Monday-Friday (remains 3-6 p.m. Sat-Sun).

Lunch: Chef Don Curtiss has assembled a lunch menu of old classics and soon-to-be favorites. From Mussels and Sausage to the famed Oil Soup and Wild Board Tenderloin to Pan Seared Sea Scallops with spiced winter squash, Gorgonzola Burger and Grilled Ahi Tuna, the menu has something for everyone on a quick lunch or a longer business lunch. Served a la carte or as a two-course prix-fixe for $16 (Main and a Starter OR Main and a Dessert), the full menu is also available for take-out. Chef Don Curtiss is working on a boxed lunch menu and to-go and drop-off catering menu ideal for business lunches that will be available soon!
