Brave Horse Tavern


Specialties: Pub and Super Bowl Sunday

Tom Douglas, Seattle’s most famous restaurateur, brings his intelligent brand of comfort food to the burgeoning South Lake Union headquarters of Amazon, in a classic wood-rafters-and-vintage-signs beer hall above his Cuoco Italian restaurant. The deal is 26 tap beers (including a Brave Horse signature IPA brewed in SoDo) with burgers and fresh pretzels for ballast. Burgers are on the diminutive side, but crafted of Painted Hills chuck, ground in-house, and topped with apple wood bacon, perhaps, or fried pasilla chili, on terrific Dahlia bakery buns. Better yet are the malt-boiled, hearth-roasted pretzels—fresh, buttery, yeasty testimonials to the Douglas empire’s baking savvy—that you dip into toppings from cheddar-pimento to smoky peanut butter-bacon. The former warehouse is exuberant as spring break, with young adults playing darts and shuffleboard, and a crowd of dashing young tech titans oozing testosterone. (Bring the trolling ladyfriends.)
