James Beard Award-winning chef Scott Carsberg opened his Pioneer Square restaurantBisato earlier this month. Carsberg previously operated Bisato, an Italian small plates restaurant, in Belltown, but he closed that down in 2012. Now the celebrated chef is back at it, this time at 84 Yesler Way, the former home of Trattoria Mitchelli.

Fans of the original Bisato will recognize hold-over dishes like the beet blini with gravlax salmon and crème fraîche. Other Venice-inspired plates could make appearances: prawns with squid ink pasta, marinated sardines and shaved fennel, and folded pasta with octopus puttanesca. Carsberg will likely source Northwest ingredients like steelhead and Dungeness crab, too.
