#2493 #S1232 - Twisted Pasty, Seattle - 4/2/2014

Twisted Pasty closed on Jan 7, 2016

Twisted Pasty opened for what would be a two-year run in Belltown with a menu built around the pasty ("pass-tee"), which originated in Cornish mining communities and spread to the American midwest. While the classic pasty wrapped beef, onion, potato and rutabaga in pie crust sort of wrapper, the "twisted" versions provided by the mother and daughter team here included things like curry chicken, chile verde, Philly steak, and chicken cordon bleu.

If you never went there, you may be envisioning a rustic diner with red and white checked tablecloths and 19th century tools on the walls. But Twisted Pasty was hosted in a dark-wooded, high-ceilinged space that feels like an old school steakhouse, including well-stocked wine racks and craft cocktail bartender Kevin (Vessel, Tavern Law, Knee High, Sun Liquor). E.g. I had a "Burning Redwoods," cedar-infused bourbon, Punt e Mes, maraschino liqueur, and orange bitters.

In short, it was a fine option for having some nice and affordable food you couldn't find anywhere else in the city, and while enjoying a top notch cocktail. In my bar data I gave it a 15% chance of making it three years, but that doesn't mean I personally won't miss it.
