#2663 #S1290 - The Westy Sports and Spirits, Seattle - 11/27/2014

The Westy, West Seattle
For some time I've been looking for my go-to sports bar -- something with plenty of fans during big games, but not a mad-house where you can't find a seat; something comfortable but not coldly modern; something where the bartenders chat with you and where the food is a cut above typical bar food. I think I may have found that in The Westy (with an even more convenient option when they expanded to a second location in north Seattle). The food is mainly upgraded versions of comfort dishes, including chicken and waffles, buttermilk chicken sandwich, braised pork belly, and seared broccoli. You can get a good cocktail (although, as usual, you want to stay away from the sugary specials and themed concoctions), and they have 13 taps of good craft beer. There are plenty of flatscreen TVs in the interior of recovered wood and Edison bulbs. The one down side of watching the Seahawks game is that they are one of those places with different cable/satellite providers, and we had to humorously try to ignore the reactions of the people sitting around the one TV that was several seconds ahead of all the others (eventually that one was snapped off).
