And while this may have been the least noticed of all, Ipanema had a nice little bar with some of the best summer drinks in the downtown area. It not only had caipirinhas, it had eight different kinds of caipirinhas, with red grapes or passion fruit or guava. A big screen in the back seemed played loops of Carnivale. The only thing that seemed to be missing were hammocks hanging between the faux palm trees, where you could sleep off your satiated food coma.
At least owner Marco Casas Beaux has left a new sister operation, the Amazon Grill, in downtown Bellevue. (Marco also owns Sur in SoDo and at least used to own the Buernos Aires Grill.) But it was a sad day for meat-lovers who live or work in downtown Seattle.
