#2688 - Raging River Cafe and Club, Fall City, WA - 1/11/2015

Located in a strip mall across the street from the Snoqualmie River, the Raging River Cafe and Club is known most for its old school diner style breakfasts. But it also has a bar section, with an almost fern-bar style, rectangular bar -- wines and spirits behind glass up top, and river rock below -- which caters to a lively, dive-bar sort of crowd.

#2687 #S1304 - Agave Cocina and Tequilas, Seattle - 1/6/2015

Sitting along with a number of other restaurants in a clutch of condos in the shadow of the Space Needle, Agave is a local mini-chain of modernized Mexican restaurants owned by Federico Ramos, with sister restaurants in Issaquah and Redmond. Frederico is said to have designed the fixtures and ironwork himself, and to accompany the food he built the largest selection of 100% agave tequilas in the Pacific Northwest.

I will have to be more adventurous in future visits, but in this one I was inclined toward the margarita with jalapeno and cilantro. I like both the food and drinks and a bonus was sassy bartender Katie K.

#2686 #S1303 - Bitter Raw, Seattle - 1/6/2015

After a working tour of Japan, New York, and San Francisco, John Sundstrom returned to Seattle and started collecting recognition from James Beard and others at places like Dahlia Lounge, Carmelita, and Earth & Ocean, before opening cozy Lark on Capitol Hill in 2003. Eleven years later he moved Lark to a much larger room to in a 1917 warehouse, which had enough room on the upper floor to create a comfortably dark second bar, Bitter/Raw. The focus is shellfish, chacuterie, and fancy, raw, small plates, and while oysters are a little too raw and bitter for my tastes, it's a quite nice location for light bites and fine cocktails.
