#1280 #S774 - Poppy, Seattle, WA - 11/9/2010

I had no idea what Poppy was before I popped in, other than a bar to add to this list where I could probably get some decent food.  Well now Poppy  is  one of my top 5 or so places to eat in Seattle. 

While the tapas boom is great for tasting several dishes in a single visit, it can start to get very costly fast if you're hungry.  At Poppy, long-time Herb Garden chef Jerry Traunfeld borrows the "Thali" (large platter) concept from India, and serves 7 to 10 pretty excellent different bites at a time.

The cocktails are good too.  I had a tasty Papi Delicious (tequila, curacao, red bell pepper, jalapenos, lime and mint) and a Six Twenty Two (rye, Amarao Nonino, rhurbarb, and Angostura bitters).  The decor is a little open and cold for a bar, but the food and drinks will definitely keep this high on my list of dinner choices.
