#2593 #S1275 - Toronado, Seattle - 8/19/2014

Toronado, Seattle, WA
Update: Toronado closed March 17, 2020, during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Matt Bonney has been a big part of the Seattle beer scene for many years, helping to build and manage Brouwer's, Bottleworks, and the Burgundian. He now has his own place, using his connections with San Francisco's Lower Haight beer mecca Toronado to open a Seattle location, and his connections with craft brewers around the country to bring in some much sought after brews. He's also added a serious food menu -- no typical tavern fried food, but rather sandwiches, soups and charcuterie built from your selections from 45 menu choices. Unlike the original -- as well as the version in San Diego -- Bonney also offers liquor, with a good selection of bourbon, scotch and tequila. He and his brother were friendly hosts, and put a bit of their own touch on the decor, although it still seems a bit spare, and I'd expect it to accrue character over future years.
