Dig into rustic pub fare, craft cocktails, and an "uncommon" beer selection at Smith in Seattle. This Capitol Hill area fave run by the proprietors of other Emerald City hotspots Linda's, King's Hardware, and Oddfellows Cafe, is known for their dependable menu of elevated and seasonal New American dinner and brunch selections. The warm and welcoming woodsy, lodge like interior provides the perfect setting for hearty and unique farmhouse style dishes and drinks.
Proving sliders are more than just a vehicle from which to dispense hilarious, pithy quips about Jerry O'Connell and that fat bearded dude traveling to a parallel universe where penicillin had not been invented, are the two dudes (one behind Rancho Bravo, the other the former owner of Bizzarro Italian) behind the slider-heavy, BBQ-inspired menu at Pinky's Kitchen, their dispenser of "pig 'n chips", which is also a short-lived spin-off in which Ponch and John compete over chubby women.
Local 360 sources most things from within 360mi of the city, and Matt's in the Market gets almost everything from the stalls in Pike Place Market downstairs.
Serving up contemporary American eats like their Braised Lamb Shank, which comes with roasted parsnips, fennel, all in a riesling braise, Liam's sources local ingredients without additives or preservatives.
Americana’s Kentucky Gentleman, made with Maker’s, muddled ginger, and mint syrup is just one of the many creative 'tails that await you in this Cap Hill drinkery. Located just off Broadway, Americana also serves flights, so you have no excuse not to order the maple-glazed pork belly, because you've got loooootssss to wash it down with.
Nothing beats the smell that emanates from Bitterroot's custom smoker and fills its reclaimed brick- and wood-laden space. Specializing its own bbq formula they've dubbed "Northwest style," this waterside Old Ballard spot dry rubs their ribs, briskets, roasted chickens, and pulled porks and comes with four house-made sauces: apple- and cola-based sweet, tangy Carolina mustard, spicy chipotle, and garlic vinegar. The tiled bar in the back is the icing on the cake with flights and specialty cocktails from their impressive aged whiskey collection.
Triumph Bar’s pork belly mac & cheese touts foraged mushrooms, truffle oil, and chives, effectively making it the best thing to hit lower Queen Anne’s since Gary Payton (RIP Sonics!). Trust us on this one, this jam packed mac is what late-night dreams are made of.
Taking over the former Elephants Gerald t-shirt shop in a way even DJ Khaled could admire, this latest Ballard Ave boozer pays homage to the jet-set '60s with its list of Golden Age cocktails & period foodstuffs, plus a mod-ish interior decked with inky blue patterned wallpaper, and a light wood bar backed by geometric shelves & hexagonal mirrors.
Cafe Pettirosso serves up quaint homestyle eats like Shepard's Pie layered w/ seasonal veggies, taters & Painted Hill ground chuck, as well as grilled quail w/ radicchio & olives, and a Bolito Misto stew w/ beef brisket, chicken leg & sausage. Cocktails include the classics (Old Fashioned, Moscow Mule), plus more inventive tipples like the the vodka- and Creme de Viollette-based Purple Rain.
