At Trattoria Cuoco, the focus is on the pasta and antipasti work station located front and center as you walk in the door. "Cuoco" means cook, and "Trattoria" means this is a casual spot as perfect for a cocktail and a bite as it is for a full-out Italian meal.

Chef Bio

Matt Fortner became Chef of Trattoria Cuoco in 2013. For the six months previous to this, he worked as a Roving Manager, which means he learned to walk into any of the Tom Douglas Restaurants and work on the line as the back-of-house manager in charge.Matt's passion for pasta and Italian cuisine has suited him well at Cuoco. He also focuses his attention on making all sorts of salumi and on whole animal butchery. Matt says he originally thought he might become a pastry chef, but the exacting, regimented nature of pastry didn't fit his personality. So he married a pastry chef instead- Tom Douglas Restaurants Pastry Chef Stacy FortnerMatt and Stacy have intense culinary memories of their travels through South America where they ate everything from guinea pigs and roast lamb in Patagonia to beef in Buenos Aires. The best meal of Matt's life was in the market of Valparaiso, Chile, where he ate many different types of seafood, raw clams, oysters, and some creatures he had never encountered before.Matt, who grew up in Tennessee, attended a year of culinary school at the Art Institute of Seattle. His first chef job was at Marjorie for 2½ years. He was also chef of How to Cook a Wolf for 2 years and chef of Tavolata for 2 years. Matt lives with Stacy in the Magnolia neighborhood of Seattle in a house with a chicken coop full of guinea hens in the back yard. Read More »
