A spring-like evening for a restaurant crawl in Seattle…
Pintxo – known for their cocktails and Tapas. Albondigas con salasa tomate, Bacon wrapped Dates, Mac & Mahon Cheese, Quail Eggs on Toast, Tequila Lime Shrimp. Favorite of the night – Mac & Mahon Cheese and the Albondigas con salasa tomate. A tasty variety of Pintxos, Sandwiches, Raciones, and Desserts are available. To drink…Singria, Dulcinea, Pintxorita. Jeannine was great. Covered cozy terrace for outdoor seating. Select items available at happy hour. Located at 2nd Ave and Blanchard. http://www.pintxoseattle.com/
Local 360 – http://www.local360.org/ All food and drink are made/come from vendors who are within 360 miles of Seattle. The wine and bev list is filled with interesting cocktails, local 360 lager, WA wines, and the like. A great reason to support Local 360…sustainable, whole, natural, conscious, choice. As we were there during Happy Hour, we received the Happy Hour menu…available from 3-6 pm Mon- Fri. and from 10 pm till late every day. All items looked REALLY good and I must come back for more… this visit it was the Corndog – handmade kielbasa (thin) served with spicy mustard. I like the concept but especially liked the atmosphere and decor (see attached image). Love this place!
List – http://www.listbelltown.com/ owners are one in the same for sister restaurants Barolo and Mamma Melina. Ahi Tuna (could have been seared hot), Fried Calamari, Xrated Tini and Bluberry L Rocks. Modern decor and airy atmosphere.
