Seattle, WA 98112
Seattle Weekly's Description
The decor at this popular Capitol Hill pub looks like it was patterned after your old English professor's home study, the impossibly pompous one who treated "The Sun Also Rises" like gospel. The abundant wood paneling is brown enough to appear black and there is a puzzling amount of stuffed (and mounted) animals. But for all of its taxidermy weirdness, the atmosphere (and the bar) are probably the best things about Smith. The menuâthough styled for gastropub simplicityâisn't expert enough to warrant a special trip just for a meal. Burgers, poutine, mac-and-cheese and the like make up the bulk of the board, with occasional high-tone touches like sweetbreads adding little of note.
Tips from foursquare
Chef Tyler Palagi is in charge of what the menu modestly calls "grub." Some of it is just the sort pub-crawlers crave after one too many bourbon lemonades or "blujitos."
If you are comfortable with animal heads on the wall, you'll love this place. Has a satisfying macaroni and cheese and one of the best burgers in the city.
Get the poutine. Why are you still reading this? Order the poutine, for crying out loud!
The taxidermy is exquisite. You know, if that's your thing.
Mediocre brunch. Service was not particularly friendly. Didn't seem to like kids
