Sexy, shimmery La Sirena shines in the MPD with new energy and design compared to nautical La Bottega of yore. Same view of the public housing across the street, but inside is a super glamorous space. Breakfast starts at 7- one of my favorite meals and I would recommend it as a foray into this pricey Batali spot. As a place to drink, at night you could meet someone at the bar and snack on homemade grissini and Seattle made salumi. It's interior beckons. For breakfast, some stellar options await such as house squeezed blood orange juice, farm fresh eggs and thick cut bread. It has not been discovered for breakfast so one can enjoy the glamour without the clamor. Of course, lots of great caffe options abound.
