#2025 #1109 - Mamnoon, Seattle - 1/24/2013

Mamnoon ("thankful") comes from ex-Microsofties and first-time restauranteurs Wassef and Racha Haroun, and serves excellent Syrian and Lebanese dishes with find cocktails devised by Andrew Bohrer. Ordering by the numbers, the Mamnoon #1 (High West oat whiskey, Araku coffee liqueur, cardamom bitters) was good and the Mamnoon #5 (Jonny Drum Bourbon, fig paste, bitters, Nux Alpina walnut liqueur) was excellent.

It's a unique and first rate restaurant stop, but this blog focuses on bars, it is not an ideal stop as for just cocktails, despite the quality drinks. The lounge area is rather cut off -- not just from the diners but from the actual service bar creating the drinks, and it feels significantly lower energy than the open dining portions of the restaurant. So go when you are in the mood for a very different sort of meal, and enjoy the cocktails; but if you are going out just for a drink, I would continue on to Still Liquor, just around the corner on Minor.
