Lower Queen Anne's Citizen Cafe has a new sibling establishment along Elliott Ave West. Citizen Six, a restaurant and bar serving lunch, happy hour, dinner, and brunch opens Tuesday, March 1.
The adjacent businesses, Six Spirits distillery and Number 6 Cider, have a hand in this new space. Citizen Six will mix cocktails with liquor produced by Six Spirits and pour ciders from Number 6 Cider. Beer and wine will also be on the drink list.
Citizen Six occupies what used to be the tasting room for Number 6 Cider (and you can order food at the Six Spirits tasting room across the hall). Popular Mexican-Korean cuisine from Citizen Cafe like the "Korexican" tacos with marinated bulgogi and crisp, spicy cucumber topping and the cowboy casserole will be on the menu, but also expect a quality burger and fries.
"It's such a burgeoning area that's in its infancy," says owner Suzana Olmos of Interbay's growing distillery row and limited dining options. "There is nowhere on this strip to just stop and get a bite to eat or happy hour." With a mix of the tech industry, Expedia headquarters moving in, and families from West Queen Anne, not to mention the hoards of traffic coming from Ballard and Magnolia, Citizen Six plans to fill those dining needs.
Stop in for Mexican-Korean fusion and bar favorites after a distillery tour or cider tasting starting at 11am with happy hour from 4-6pm.
