Since colonial times, taverns have been popular gathering places, until the townsfolk got a peek at those Magic cards, and started burning everyone at the stake. For a new gathering place generating heat that hopefully stops short of immolation, Brave Horse Tavern.
Brought to Amazon-land by the same crew behind Cuoco, this second story, brick- and blonde wood-heavy 200-seater is dominated by a giant three-sided bar that boasts 24 taps, features two retro-style shuffleboard tables beneath massive metal skylights and a ream of decorative touches (vintage bar signs, reclaimed plank walls, equine statues, etc.), and is serving up fancified pub-eats from an open kitchen fronted by an entry-facing to-go counter, also the dude Shawn Kemp hires to tally up his trips to Kidd Valley. Comestibles include snack options (fried cheese curds w/ grain mustard mayo, beef tartare/ spring onion/ aioli "Cannibal" sandwiches), burgers (with smoky sauce on Painted Hills chuck, chicken-fried turkey breast, seared albacore tuna, etc.), smokehouse options (smoky BBQ brisket dip w/ onion roll & ancho chili sauce), and mains like a Washington beef minute steak w/ caramelized onions & a loaded Idaho baker, but not a loaded Idaho banker, because, come on, dude lives in Idaho. If it's pretzels you desire, they've got handformed ones malt boiled, hearth-roasted and served with spreads ranging from smoked peanut butter & bacon, to Penn Cove clams & Chuckanut Vienna Lager, or mustards that include super hot and honey -- the latter being a role Jessica Alba obtained exclusively for being the former.
