#2392 #S1204 - Triumph, Seattle - 1/7/2014
It's difficult for me to feel a lot of intimacy from bars tucked in the massive concrete structures of new condo buildings. But if the buildings are going to be there, I suppose it's nice to have some places where you can grab a very nice glass of wine and some tasty small plates here virtually in the shadow of the Space Needle and Seattle Center. The owners of Triumph, two sommeliers and a chef, have mitigated the concrete behemoth -- the Expo building from Burkheimer Management and Essex Property Trust -- with some nice wood, friendly service, 300+ wine choices, and some unique and tasty cocktails. And bacon -- at least on this night. That is, while bacon is not a theme of the place, tonight I enjoyed a Bacon Old Fashioned to go with my Bacon Clams. Yum.
