Stanford's Restaurant & Bar stays close to home, even as it explores and combines the diverse flavors of the U.S.. Its chefs purchase as many ingredients as possible from local Washington and Oregon sources such as Inaba Farms, Ralph's Greenhouse, and Dungeness Farms. The results: buttermilk fried chicken with country sausage gravy and honey mustard glaze, and walnut crusted brie with house-made seasonal preserves. As for their combinations, the chefs don't believe land and sea need to remain separate?just look at their prime rib and grilled salmon with parmesan garlic mashed potatoes, seasonal vegetables, and Dave's horseradish sauce. Both surf and turf tend to spend a lot of time together atop the kitchen's wood-fired grill, too, soaking up the smokey flavor of the smoldering logs while coming to realize there aren't so many differences between them after all.

The origins of Tim's Tavern on 105th are shrouded in mystery. Built during prohibition, the building may or may not have been a speakeasy before transforming into a straightforward bar in 1935. Though it has changed hands and sizes since then, the spot has maintained its reputation as a fun local hangout with a wide selection of whiskeys and cocktails. It hosts different events every night of the week, from trivia to bingo to open mic comedy and live music. While guests enjoy whatever the night's entertainment may be, then can also dig into comfort food favorites such as daily pulled pork sandwiches, kielbasa brats on the weekends, smoked ribs on Thursdays, and tacos on Tuesdays. These pair well with the bar's stable of ten draft beers, which always includes a cider, Bud Light, Rainier, and seven craft brews. There is also one nitro tap hiding amongst the others, so that bartenders can pour out brews that are as smooth and carbonation-free as that 20-year-old bottle of Pepsi you're aging in the cellar for a special occasion.
