Mulleady’s Irish Pub: A User’s Guide

Gourmet Irish Pub Cuisine | Irish Whiskey Flights | Craft Cocktails | Stone Fireplace

A Taste

  • Small plate: Mac & Blue with orecchiette and fourme d’ambert cheese sauce
  • Sandwich: The Plan B burger with a fried egg, Beecher’s Flagship cheddar, bacon, and garlic aioli
  • Entree: The Traditional with ham, bacon, black pudding, Irish knocker, scone, grilled tomato, two eggs, grilled potatoes, and baked beans

To Drink: Alongside local draught beers from Washington and Oregon brewers such as Odin’s Gift, tenders pour out spirit flights, including the Cooley Distillery Collection with Greenore 8 year, Connemara 12 year, and Tyroconnel single-malt Irish whiskey. In the mixology department, artisans whip up potions such as Liam's Libation: Jameson, banana, spiced syrup, lemon, and bitters.

When to Go: * Saturday and Sunday during brunch, when they serve up boxty, a pancake of potatoes and scallions popular in the north Midlands.

Where to Sit: Grab a sturdy wooden table near the towering stacked-stone fireplace, or belly up to the bar on a cherry-stained stool to admire the dozens of Irish whiskeys and scotches.

While You Wait

  • Play a game of darts.
  • Explore both levels of the cavernous pub.

Inside Tip

  • Don’t be disappointed if your favorite dish from last time isn’t available on the menu when you visit next. Both the food menu and the drink menu change regularly to incorporate fresh ingredients and to give local psychics some business.

If You Can’t Make It, Try This:

If you don’t mind forgoing the food and hopping right into the revelry, head to Conor Byrne Pub (5140 Ballard Avenue NW), an Irish-style watering hole that marries exposed brick walls, chandeliers, and live music.

Zippy’s Giant Burgers: A User’s Guide

Handcrafted Burgers | Fresh Beef Ground Daily | Vintage Decor | Award-Winning Veggie Burger

Sample Menu

  • Entree: the Big Bully burger, with grilled onions, steak sauce, garlic mayo, and swiss
  • Side: tater tots
  • Beverage: salted-caramel milk shake

While You’re Waiting: Wander the restaurant and admire the collection of vintage burger memorabilia: a painter’s cap with Where’s the beef? printed on it or a merry-go-round horse with a cheeseburger for a head.

Inside Tips

  • Really big appetites might find satisfaction with the King Lou Lou burger, which includes four patties and eight slices of bacon. Down this along with a milk shake and three sides, and you could earn yourself a photo on the wall and a T-shirt—if you beat the current record: 8 minutes and 52 seconds.
  • Vegetarians clamor for the black-bean burger, which Seattle Weekly named the best non-beef burger in 2011.

Press Box

  • Seattle Weekly named Zippy’s number 2 in its list of top 10 burger joints in 2012, to wit: “Zippy’s has secured its fiercely loyal following simply by making burgers better than everyone else.”
  • In 2012, Eater ranked Zippy’s among its 38 essential Seattle restaurants.
  • Seattle Magazine praised the burger’s “irresistible deep, dark, salty-beef-meets-hot-griddle crust” and named it one of the 25 best burgers in Seattle in 2012.

The Three Faces of Sushi Kappo Tamura

Kappo-Style Dining

The Japanese have plenty of words for different styles of dining, from omakase (chef’s selection) to izakaya (a Japanese pub with great food). But kappo might not be on the tip of many tongues. Legendarily rooted in Osaka starting in the 19th century, kappo dining puts the chef on display in the dining room, where diners can watch their meals form before their very eyes. Even better, there are no imaginary lines here between cook and customer: the other distinctive part of kappo are the many close interactions between the diners and chef, making it a learning experience for both parties.

Local Everything, Always

You could say it’s the Japanese way, but here, more than anything it’s the Tamura way: creating a menu based on whatever fresh, local food chefs can obtain that day. With produce plucked from the rooftop garden or shrimp caught in Skagit Bay, chefs create a brand-spankin’-new menu every day. That means you may not have much control over what’s offered, but with the chefs’ degree of skill in the kitchen, that essentially doesn’t matter.

Overachiever

When Seattle Magazine named Sushi Kappo Tamura the Best New Restaurant in 2011, it lauded it’s sushi as the best in Seattle. That might seem like a big enough accomplishment in itself, but it’s not the only trophy in this restaurant’s case. Seattle Magazine readers’ choice voters agreed with the critics, deeming it Best Sushi in 2014. Travel + Leisure called it one of the Best Sushi Restaurants in the States. Maybe it’s the freshness of every ingredient or Kyoto-born chef Taichi Kitamura’s constant strive for perfection, but Sushi Kappo Tamura keeps racking up accolades that leave the rest of the pack lagging behind.

The Three Faces of W Seattle

Luxurious Rooms

Even the more modest accommodations at W Seattle are deluxe. Pillow-top beds, goose-down comforters, WiFi, and bathrooms stocked with luxurious Bliss products make stays comfortable and relaxing. Guests who want a truly special stay can book the Extreme Wow suite. The 1,000-square-foot suite is located on the hotel's top floor with soaring city views, which gives guests a taste of what living in the Space Needle would be like, if the Space Needle had a jacuzzi.

Regional Cuisine

While guests may come from faraway places, the food served at Trace, the W's acclaimed restaurant, doesn't. Executive Chef Steven Ariel cooks up Asian-inspired dishes with ingredients from local farms. You’ll find 100% organic produce from Willie Green's Organic Farm used in salads and locally caught seafood from Taylor Shellfish Farms in the bouillabaisse. The fresh food, served in Trace's renovated dining room, led to Food & Wine magazine naming it one of the Best Hotel Restaurants.

Contemporary Style

The first thing guests notice when walking into W Seattle is the colossal, three-story fireplace centered in the lobby. But this isn't some homespun relic. After a massive redesign (which netted the hotel a Restaurant and Bar Design Award in 2013), the architect designed a modern fireplace area that's welcoming—the space is dubbed the Living Room—while keeping to the W's modern aesthetic. In Trace, the designers took some structural columns that were once an awkward necessity and transformed them into sleek, geometric poles that frame the sushi station like curtains, drawing attention to the theatrical preparation. Elsewhere in the dining room, a mural pays homage to the duality of Seattle—a nature-lover's haven and a sci-tech mecca. One side of the mural appears to show jellyfish, but as you walk to the other side, a supersonic jet emerges from the picture.

Sample Menu

  • Breakfast: chicken fried steak and eggs, bacon waffles, or a build-your-own omelet
  • Lunch: traditional BLT (plus avocado), lamb burger, or cobb salad

When to Go: between 3–6 p.m. for happy hour, which offers discounted small plates of nachos, deep-fried green beans, waygu beef sliders, and cheese quesadillas, along with discounted draft, well, and wine drinks.

While You’re Waiting Enjoy one of the 22 rotating on-draft microbrews, which come in sizes ranging from the small “schooner” to the pitcher.

Inside Tip Late risers can still enjoy breakfast—it’s served until 2:30 p.m.

The Story: Leon Torrey’s first experience in the restaurant business was as a dishwasher salesmen. It didn’t take long before he decided to trade in his tie for an apron and open Egg Cetra, which would become a hugely popular breakfast restaurant with three local locations. After more than 20 years of success, he decided to branch out and try his hand at classic pub staples, founding Blue Star Cafe and Pub in 1997. It wasn’t too much of a departure, though—he still kept the breakfast and lunch favorites that made Eggs Cetera such a hit. Today, his daughter Wendy carries on the torch.

Quote That Best Sums It Up “I avoid the trends and focus on offering consistent comfort food with homemade ingredients.” - Founder Leon Torrey

The Three Faces of Space Needle

Sky-High Views

At 520 feet tall, the Space Needle was once the tallest structure west of the Mississippi. Here, though, the spectacular, panoramic view make the east’s mighty river look like a rambling brook. To the west, the waters of Puget Sound and Elliott Bay glimmer in the sunlight. To the south, Mount Rainier peeks over the skyscrapers and neighborhoods of downtown Seattle, sprawled all the way to Lake Union and the distant ridges of the Cascade Mountain Range.

A Rotating Menu

Just 20 feet below the observation deck, diners at SkyCity Restaurant let the 360-degree panorama revolve around them. Powered by a single 1.5-horsepower motor, SkyCity was only the second revolving restaurant in the world when it was built. Today, there are dozens of such restaurants worldwide, but SkyCity continues to distinguish itself with a carefully curated menu by Executive Chef Jeff Maxfield. Specializing in Pacific Northwest cuisine, Chef Maxfield was invited to cook a six-course meal at the James Beard House in October 2013—a testament to his work at SkyCity, whose menu includes everything from jumbo sea scallops to pear-and-brie agnolotti. For dessert, diners are invited to soak up the sweet views from the observation deck free of charge.

A Point in Seattle’s History

Since its construction in 1962, the Space Needle has become one of America’s most iconic architectural achievements. To prepare for the 1962 World’s Fair, crews constructed the Space Needle in a mere 400 days, earning the structure the unofficial title of “400 Day Wonder.” More than a million visitors visit the Needle every year, whether to eat at SkyCity, survey the Emerald City, or simply stand within the Earth’s last line of defense should a giant balloon ever descend on the Northwest.
