Il Bistro: About to have awesome cocktails again.

Since leaving Tavern Law, David Nelson has been seen shaking and stirring at Still Liquor on Capitol Hill, but he won’t be there long.

Nelson told me today that he has accepted the bar manager position at Il Bistro, former Pike Place haunt of the great Murray Stenson.

This is such good news, Seattle boozers. Il Bistro has the most amazing bar space—arched doorways, warm, cozy light…it’s old timey romance on steroids. Or something. And with Nelson there to whip the cocktail program into shape, it’s poised to be our town next great cocktail lounge. Again. Nelson will be closing out his time at Still over the next week and a half; Look for him behind the Il Bistro bar Tuesday through Friday, beginning September 21.
