This cozy little bar with open brick walls and few rustic details keeps well with the atmosphere of its historic Pioneer Square neighborhood. With only a few local ciders and beers, Damn the Weather deals in a rotating selection of veggie-heavy shared plates and in cocktails, which on its menu range from "tall and fizzy," like the Chilcano to "short and fresh," like the scotchy Godfather Part II to "boozy and evocative," like the Tuxedo No. 3 with a daring dash of absinth.
Ballard’s Brunswick and Hunt is the newest addition to the 70th St. echelon (Delancey, Honore, Fat Hen). This all-American spot holds to its motto of being “nice without being fancy”. The must-try items are the Brunswick Stew and Hunter Burger.
Canterbury has been a longstanding refuge for people from all walks of life. The scuzzy dive bar got revamped and feels more chalet-like than ever. Don't worry, it still has cheap booze, hearty food, and a bad ass staff.
The expansion to the iconic Intermezzo Carmine in Pioneer Square, this place has super tasty craft Italian cocktails andf small plates like seared ahi tuna and squid ink pasta.
The new Capitol hill resto Restaurant Marron has a come-as-you-are atmosphere and that has menu items like grilled tails and pork brisket that are must-tries.
Food at Cortona in the Central District is open exclusively on the weekends and the goal is to serve food that makes you happy. The menu is full of deliciousnes and a blend of Modern European and Pan-Asian. Be sure to try the BBQ Mackerel to Steelhead Trout Lox and their specialty coffee.
This old school fish 'n chips joint is Ethan Stowell's newest spot. It's only got room for 25 seats, but it features a roll-up front door to maximize your Summer enjoyment. Be sure to try Dungeness Crab Roll Sandwich and True Cod and Chips.
The sister restaurant to Blind Pig Bistro is really more of an alcoholic counterpart in this family. Babirusa serves all kinds of beer, wine, and cocktails and is open from noon to 3pm for lunch and 5pm to midnight for dinner.
