Bars where Pete has had a drink

#1357 - Munch Bar, Bellevue, WA - 1/31/2011

Update: The Munchbar closed permanently after a man was shot and killed in the bar on a crowded Christmas eve night. (The shooter was Ja’mari Alexander Jones, one of the men who beat to death cherished Seattle institution Ed "Tuba" McMichael.)

"Skateboarder fusion" might be the best description of the menu at Munchbar.  Their burritos have carnitas marinated in CocaCola and their Ahi tuna tartare comes with Rice Krispy sticks.  The cocktail menu is a mix of summer patio standards and candy-like house cocktails.  Add the graffiti-like decor and it's like the X-Games competitors were allowed to create their own restaurant.

That doesn't mean there are not some reasonable options for people over 20.  The beer selection is aggressive and interesting, and you can find some decent food between the ones designed to convince you that the chef must have been stoned.  But if you don't call all everyone "Dude," it's unlikely to be a good choice for you.
