#2028 #S1110 - Brass Tacks, Seattle - 1/29/2013

Update: Brass Tacks closed Nov 4, 2018.

Brass Tacks is pretty much perfect for Georgetown. First, it brings the neighborhood some unique and fine cocktails, with a tantalizing set of infusions lining the shelves behind the bar. Second, it brings some unique and fine food choices, from chef Chris Opsata, formerly of Urban Enoteca (Would I like some candied bacon with winter spice and pomegranate? Is that a trick question?)  Third,all this arrives not in some shiny, sleek modern form, but in a woody warehouse, with various gewgaws and gimcracks -- an expansive, quirky, blue-collar extension of the funky Ground Control deli and bar next door.

I drank a "Georgetown" (Old Overholt, Punt e Mes, Maraschino, and cherry) with the lamb meatballs (chickpea, curried cucumbers, and mint), with one or two other cocktails that I can no longer recall, but recall enjoying quite a bit. With a casual vibe, woodwork done by the owners, and such intriguing possibilities on the menu and behind the bar, I expect to make repeated trips here.
