Another place I've been to many times (the bar, not just the restaurant), but somehow missed on my list. The Palace Kitchen is, of course, a Tom Douglas place, which means the cocktails are not up to the level of the food, but that's a very high bar (everyone in Seattle already knows about the food at Douglas's places, so no comments necessary on that front). The bar is pretty much the basics, but it tests your self-discipline with those dang bowls of pistachios sitting around the bar.
