People eat three times a day to prevent mouthy mouths from brashly blurting out their distaste for the rest of the digestive system. Today's Groupon prevents intrasystem quarreling by subduing chatty cheeks with elegant eats: for $10, you get $23 worth of lounge fare and drinks at The Scarlet Tree.
The Scarlet Tree's cuisiniers populate their menu with vibrant, fresh fare representing the Northwest's bounty with hints of Californian fine dining. Empty morning bellies can experience fullness, without reading Deepak Chopra books, by ingesting walnut pancakes ($9), mimosas ($4), or fresh-from-the-oven biscuits and gravy, accompanied by two eggs and house taters ($9). Later eaters can munch and sup on one of 10 sandwiches such as the lamb burger, topped with goat cheese and tzatziki ($12), or the BLAT, which bears a dynamic combo of thick applewood-smoked bacon, lettuce, avocado, and tomato ($8).
The Scarlet Tree's creative barkeeps keep spirits and glasses raised with a variety of cocktails and signature drinks, including the Scarlett Tree-ni, a mystical amalgam of Aboslut Ruby Red, grapefruit, and cranberry juices ($8). The well-stocked bar also offers a variety of local and imported wines such as a 14 Hands cabernet ($8). Every Friday and Saturday from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m., patrons shake a leg until their pet lemur quits hugging it so they can dance to local funk, soul, jazz, blues, and reggae acts.
The Scarlet Tree
The Scarlet Tree teems with energy. A live rhythm and blues band jams on the raised stage in the evenings, invigorating a crowd that noshes on eclectic small plates and sips local craft beers streaming from 12 taps. It took owner Pete Kolytiris four years to rebuild The Scarlet Tree to this former glory following a fire at the original site in 2005, and since then, Pete has revived the lounge—originally opened more than 50 years ago—filling it with live music, smooth cocktails, and reliable food.
Pete upholds The Scarlet Tree’s time-honored and ever-popular brunch menu by slinging staples such as eggs benedict and cubed house potatoes, along with freshly baked scones and corned beef hash. As the sun begins to sink, servers swap out eggs for ahi tacos and signature burgers topped with truffle pesto. DJs and live musicians drive the nightly line up, supplying soul, jazz, and even karaoke hits as patrons settle in for a night of drinks and relaxed entertainment.
