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.

When Spokane natives and Adelo’s Take-N-Bake Pizza owners Matt and Kim Howes decided to open their restaurant in 2008, they wanted to offer, in their own words, "great pizza at a great value." After four years and gaining a following in the community, Adelo’s Take-N-Bake Pizza continually strives to appease. Customers can construct their own pizzas, matching four types of crust, including their very own gluten-free, with six house-made sauces, hand-grated 100% whole-milk mozzarella, and more than 25 toppings. The gluten-free option came about when they discovered Kim’s gluten allergy, and, as a result, they knew they would have to adjust their approach to pizza. However, instead of simply declaring the pies off-limits, they spent their time in the kitchen tweaking recipes and researching alternative ingredients that would keep their slices both delicious and healthy. The result was a gluten-free dough derived from rice, potato, and tapioca flours that helped bring pizza back into the lives of celiac sufferers and earned the restaurant accreditation through the National Gluten Intolerance Group in 2011. Today, that dough forms the basis of their gluten-free specialty pies, which range from the pineapple-sprinkled Hawaiian and creamy garlic chicken to the jalapeno burn packed with peppers and spicy sausage. No matter what pie they choose, customers can also complete their meals with a six pack chosen from the shop's large selection of mix-and-match micro brews, which also include gluten-free beers from forward-thinking brewers such as Bard’s Tale Brewing Company.

Some think of raw-food diets as restrictive and bland, but with chef Francisco Hernandez pulling the strings in the kitchen, that's not the case. ?One look at AmeRAWcan Bistro?s menu is enough to convince anyone that raw doesn?t mean boring,? according to the News Tribune writer Rosemary Ponnekanti. ?Vegan burgers, sesame falafel, kelp noodles, kale chips and cheesecake are just some of the possibilities.? Raw cuisine this delectable requires preparation methods unfamiliar to some. Hernandez and his team soak seeds until they sprout, grind cashews for faux milk and cheese, and dehydrate grains for ?bread? that they use to create sandwiches or feed to health-conscious ducks in the park. They never heat any ingredient to more than 116 degrees, which preserves the full spectrum of vitamins and enzymes in each morsel.

While many of the restaurant's dishes mimic foods that are normally cooked, others are straightforward in their freshness; tomato-cucumber gazpacho, for instance, with chopped sweet peppers, basil, and mint. Smoothies and juice blends fresh-squeezed from granny smith apples, parsley, and beets wash raw bites down.

At a separate kitchen station, the chefs layer organic meats and cheeses onto organic, preservative-free bread baked by Essential Baking Company of Seattle, crafting hearty sandwiches that they serve on a set of plates designated for meat. Though the menu is healthy, patrons can find hints of decadence in the form of raw chocolate truffles, beer, and wine.

Chef Peter Gallin had just constructed a custom grill, and was stoking its first fire with applewood harvested from a nearby orchard, when the idea struck him—the name for his Northwest-centric restaurant: Applewood. Though Chef Gallin's restaurant foregrounds its Northwest heritage, it also incorporates recipes gleaned from a childhood spent living in the Asian Pacific Rim with his anthropologist and sociologist parents, as well as French cuisine, and influences from years spent in New Mexico. He incorporates these varied culinary styles while avoiding traditional dishes, instead mingling flavors such as chipotle, lime, ginger, and orange into new incarnations.

Though he favors elegant food presentation when furnishing platters of roasted duck and northwest fish, Gallin uses only regular, relatable ingredients, which make his dishes approachable for all palates and untraceable by detectives. He brews all of the restaurant's soups in-house, designing up to six unique soups each week. West Coast wines, microbrews, and desserts made in-house complement his international appetizers and main courses. The focus on simplicity extends to the restaurant's decor: framed photographs hang above potted plants on rustic side tables, and long communal tables stand next to floor-to-ceiling windows looking out onto deep pine forest. Behind a hardwood bar, flanked by exposed brick walls, hangs the giant, hammered steel apple that serves as the restaurant's emblem.

The inside of ViaVita Café & Wine Bar traces the timeline of a single day. Floor-to-ceiling windows cast morning light onto a display case of pastries and cheeses—an addendum to the counter that bears morning coffee orders. Nearby, granite-topped tables sit far enough apart to suggest an open, Parisian patio, but close enough together to support a cross-stream of chatter over lunchtime sandwiches. The day ends on the other side of a semicircular wine bar. There, walls wearing distressed paint encapsulate a rustic alcove, where hanging plants and Greco-Roman-style pottery evoke the dining room of a hillside villa.

The decor and seasonal menu at ViaVita Café & Wine Bar champion a European-flavored escape, where diners can stop at any time for a meal, a snack, or a glass of wine. From the crepes and omelets of brunch—served with duck-fat potatoes and chocolate-orange butter—to afternoon paninis and dinners of pan-seared Alaskan salmon, meals realized by imaginative chefs spark and fuel long conversations. Imported and domestic beers, as well as wines from small vineyards on multiple continents, complement the diverse bouquet of flavors and pair especially well with cheese and charcuterie boards. During special events, guitar music acts as a soothing soundtrack for bites, and sommelier seminars instruct patrons on how to age libations without sending them to PG-13 movies alone.

While living on Molokai, Bobby and Diane Nakihei couldn’t throw a stone without hitting a plate-lunch special. The classic Hawaiian dish—two scoops of rice, one scoop of macaroni salad, and an entree—is served at practically every fast-food restaurant and food wagon across the island. When the couple moved from Hawaii to the Pacific Northwest, they began to long for the once-ubiquitous island cuisine. So Bobby traded the stuffy shirt and tie of a bookkeeping career for the patterned, button-down shirts of his homeland and opened Bobby's Hawaiian Style Restaurant, drawing transplanted islanders and locals alike to his plate-lunch specials, which often come wrapped in taro leaves and seaweed.

His cuisine earned the restaurant a spot on the Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and praise from Scott Gorman of the Herald, who extols it as “prepared and presented with a good deal of authenticity and style.” Revered dishes include Kahlua pig, which Chef Bobby cures with hawaiian sea salt, covers in banana leaves, and roasts for eight hours. The meticulous preparation extends to the rest of the menu, which spotlights the leaf-steamed pork of laulau and the sushi-esque spam musubi. In addition to the cuisine, owners Bobby and Diane showcase Hawaiian culture by offering hula lessons, presenting live Hawaiian music and recycling diners' lawn clippings into grass skirts.
