#1374 #S832 - Golden Beetle, Seattle - 2/19/2011

Update: Maria Hines closed Golden Beetle in October of 2016 and replaced it with Young American Ale House.

An excellent new Eastern Mediterranean restaurant from Maria Hines, the chef/owner of Tilth with a fine bar featuring Andy McClellan from Lola and Marley Tomic-Beard from Spur.  From an enticing cocktail menu, I chose "One Good Conundrum" (Old Overholt rye, Cynar, house orange bitters, and Scrappy's celery bitters) and then got a little Turkish with a "Lion's Milk Swizzle" (Efe Raki, lemon, orange-flower honey, and orange flower water) -- both quite fine.  I will be coming back for the cocktails, food, and ambiance.
