Restaurant | Tula Bene Pastaria + Chophouse

Tulalip Resort Casino’s newest dining venue, Tula Bene Pastaria + Chophouse, builds upon familiar Italian-inspired house-made pastas combined with a wide selection of premier steaks.

Chef Jeremy Taisey takes diners on an unexpected culinary experience. Guests can begin their evening from a generous selection of appetizers, featuring the Salumi Antipasti Platter, Pancetta Wrapped Prawns, or the Hand Stretched Pizzetta made with local cheese and garlic oil. Entrée highlights feature six prime and upper choice Double R Ranch steaks, Chef Jeremy’s House-made D’Angelo Sausages, Prosciutto Wrapped Halibut, and the Half-Roasted Chicken with melted leeks and cremini mushrooms.

The Tula Bene menu wouldn’t be complete without daily freshly-made pasta such as the signature interactive tableside prepared Cacio e Pepe, which is a traditional chitarra pasta tossed with pecorino cheese and black pepper, Ricotta Gnocchi with preserved lemon, Tagliatelle with smoked oysters or the Lobster Ravioli served with sous vide lobster medallions.

“Chef Jeremy Taisey has a real zest for preparing and creating fresh housemade Italian dishes and is always finding local products to feature on his seasonally inspired menus. The restaurant will offer a contemporary dinner menu that will be prepared fresh daily, creating a relaxed fun escape,” shares Executive Chef Perry Mascitti.

A few sweet temptations from Pastry Chef Nikol Nakamura’s kitchen include her Budino with white chocolate, Sweet Pecorino Cake with candied tomatoes, olive oil gelato, candied basel, and pecorino frico, or her Flourless Chocolate Torte with blood orange segments.

Under the stewardship of Sommelier Tom Thompson, the restaurant will offer an approachable European-inspired wine list featuring a rotating selection of more than 30 wines by the glass and a full bar showcasing artfully handcrafted cocktails.

Dinner and bar service will be offered Thursday and Sunday from 5 pm-10 pm and Friday and Saturday from 5 pm-11 pm.

Dine in a casual and comfortable setting reminiscent of an Italian pastaria and “godere” (enjoy)!
