You might just need a fork and knife to finish off one of these burgers at this eatery, because as their name might suggest, Teddy’s burgers are a little bigger than what you might be used to... like TBB’s Monster Double Combo (which can be loaded up with up to 18oz of chuck), you know you’ve got a winner on your hands… and probably on your shirt too.
The nautical-themed bar just off 45th sports seaward cocktails like the Davy Jones Locker (raspberry vodka, lemon, pineapple juice, soda water and Curacao) and the Landlubber (Knob Creek bourbon and Hales Ale Supergoose IPA) plus rustic, deconstructed pub fare.
This Queen Anne spot has tables with burners built into them. Once you take your pick from any of their five broths (including traditional seaweed, spicy miso and wakame), you choose a meat and boil your meal away!
Within Brimmer & Heeltap's red brick walls lies a black, white canvas of an interior (dotted with blue lights and booths) where one of a kind recipes and presentations steal all the attention. The menu's for brunch and dinner alike are short and sweet, and main dishes are divided into sections for vegetarian, meat, and seafood (there are three seasonal options for each). Meals like grilled octopus, duck fried rice, and saur broccoli salad look as great as they taste, just like their 10 specialty cocktail options.
Cone and Steiner, a speciality grocery, is jam-packed with local goodies galore, as well as a beer bar and pretty much anything else you could possibly need from a proper corner store.
This eatery serves up innovative dishes like Hanger steak with charmoula and baby turnips and lamb burgers. To drink? Tallulah’s keeps two cocktails on tap (Basil Rickey and Marley’s Tonic) plus a hefty selection of original cocktails like the Fallows Aid which has scotch, fernet Jelinek and Dry Curaçao and the Quarter Horse which highlights bourbon, a seasonal shrub, citrus, and Rachel’s ginger beer.
Just off the Burke Gilman trail, this spot touts a walk-up window and daily brunch menu, serving pastries, espresso, fresh juices (pineapple! lime!) and breakfast foods.
