#1977 #S1082 - Oak, Seattle - 11/19/2012
Beacon hill has had a nice addition of restaurants and bars over the last year and Oak is a nice part of that. It has a woody, mid-century interior, including a darkened back bar, where they serve some nice beers, reasonable cocktails, and homey sorts of foods made from high quality and local ingredients. It is owned by the folks behind Capitol Hill's Redwood, and while it is definitely similar in several ways, it's a bit more intimate -- perhaps more like Ballard's Hazelwood. It draws a pleasant crowd of locals, young parents and hipsters, and I had a nice chat and friendly service from bartender Don, who says things like "Geez Louise."
