Spur Restaurant Review

: Although the name may inspire you to wear cowboy boots and a hat, Spur’s urban décor calls for dressier attire. Moody lighting, gauzy curtains, sleek mirrors, and dramatic rotating photographs projected onto an enormous screen create an industrial yet romantic setting. Food-wise, chef-owners Brian McCracken and Dana Tough deliver bold flavors and surprising textures at this Belltown gastropub. Classic cocktails are often seasonally inspired, such as a summer elderflower iced tea spiked with gin, or the ultra-smooth Kentucky Tuxedo that's a blend of bourbon, sherry, lavender and orange bitters. The ever-changing menu may include a chicory salad with candied pecans, smoked hamachi and avocado; venison tartare with smoked beet, quail egg and tarragon; and veal sweetbreads with roasted heirloom squash. Indecisive eaters will enjoy the chef's five-course tasting menu. For a sweet ending, order the pecan and white chocolate bourbon cake. Those in the know avoid the trendy “scene" by making weeknight reservations on the early side.
