A simple yet slightly upscale feeling bistro with white tablecloths and large windows overlooking busy Hawthorne Boulevard. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, the menu features Northwest favorites like salmon and seasonal vegetables, rustic breads and so much more. Also, check out the Waffle Window
on their west side for Belgian-style waffles to-go.
Italian "slow" food in a warm, cozy atmosphere. The building kind of looks like it used to be an old IHop, but is modern and beautifully renovated inside. An array of appetizers from fresh to fried join a selection of salads and main courses that range from seafood and fowl to sirloin and wild boar. Of course along with your meal you will more than likely be interested in sampling some wine and they've got you covered there too with bottles from $20 to $100. Also check out their new weekend brunch.
Located in the Jupiter Hotel complex, the Doug Fir Lounge -located below the restaurant and bar, is like a super-cool log cabin bunker from the future. Playing host to some of the best touring and local bands it is by far one of the most unique music venues in the pacific northwest. The gorgeous log cabin-themed diner hosts a variety of musical events on their lower level, so you can see a show, drink a cosmo, and eat a "Fir Burger" all at the same place, then pass out in a swank room at the Jupiter Hotel just next door. The popular happy hour boasts some of the best cheap bar food in town, but get there early if you want to get a seat, because the lounge fills up quick with well-heeled urbanites.
