Contributors will get the first opportunity for seats to the opening production of the 2014-15 season

“We pride ourselves on providing over 20,000 theater lovers each season with an amazing dining experience with delicious menus featuring fresh, locally produced ingredients.”

Café Nordo launches a Kickstarter campaign today to raise $35,000 for a complete kitchen build out of its new home in Pioneer Square.

The Kickstarter effort is a critical part of its capital campaign to raise $250,000 to fund renovation of the 1890s-era Globe Building at the corner of Nord Alley and South Main Street, across from Occidental Park in historic Pioneer Square. The longtime home to the iconic Elliott Bay Book Company is being transformed into Nordo’s Culinarium, a spectacular new venue where food meets performance, literary and visual arts.

The troupe will occupy one floor for performers and audiences, and the lower level previously occupied by the Elliott Bay Café will be built out with state-of-the-art professional kitchen technology to handle food service. Whether an intimate culinary experience with one of Seattle’s many star chefs to visual artists to large-scale theatrical productions, the unique space will accommodate and enhance the many worlds audiences dine in at Café Nordo.

“The Kickstarter campaign will provide funding to outfit our kitchen with the stoves, refrigeration and other elements we need to provide our audiences with the imaginative food presentations they’ve come to love,” said Artistic Director Erin Brindley. “We pride ourselves on providing over 20,000 theater lovers each season with an amazing dining experience with delicious menus featuring fresh, locally produced ingredients.”

Contributors to the Kickstarter campaign will have the first opportunity to obtain tickets to the 2014-15 season, which opens with the whimsical production of “Don Nordo,” the imaginative origin-story of Chef Nordo as inspired by Cervantes’ fable of Don Quixote on Nov. 13 (previews beginning Nov. 6). Tickets go on sale to the general public on Oct. 15.
