#1988 #S1089 - Bait Shop, Seattle - 12/9/2012

The Bait Shop is a new Linda Derschang bar in the Capitol Hill area so it is, of course, instantly popular. It shares the woody, vintage elements of several other Derschang projects, but adds a new, maritime theme. The smell of fried fish hits you as you walk in the door, wafting over the bar from the kitchen and around the dark, knotty pine interior. Derschang recruited Forrest Brunton (Golden Beetle, Tilth) to put together a one-page menu of casual food (fish and chips, giant pork rinds, fried chicken sandwich) and Adam Fream (The Sexton) to create a tropical-themed cocktail menu that includes a couple selections on tap (a Dark and Stormy, and a Murray Stenson creation), as well as a couple frozen options. And unlike the vast preponderance of bars that serve tropical drinks, the Bait Shop actually serves a quite drinkable mai tai.
