Grub was opened in the old Ototo Sushi space on upper Queen Anne by Sharon Woo Fillingim (Le Reve Bakery, Jimmy's Table, Cool Hand Luke). It has a small, open bar, but they are primarily a family-friendly restaurant selling "American fusion, including Asian, Spanish and French flavors." It should probably not be your first choice in the area when you are just looking for a bar -- it was noisy with children even on this 9pm Saturday visit, and it's a little too bright and limited in spirits. But the food is very good, so it is a nice stop for a fairly nice cocktail with a non-intimate but quite tasty lunch or dinner. Both my appetizer (seared sea scallops with roasted tomatillo salsa and smoked cumin chili oil) and my salmon entree were very pleasing, and the "Cori's Sour Cherry Old Fashioned" (Bulliet rye, house-made cherry syrup, orange bitters) and Manhattan were well made.
