The Wurst Place Restaurant Review

: In the South Lake Union neighborhood, this pub-style spot offers a simple menu of bratwurst, fries and craft beers. Select from more than 20 bratwursts in styles ranging from classic Bavarian to wild boar. There's also a changing selection of exotic options, such as rattlesnake and rabbit. Twenty-three rotating local and imported beers on tap make it easy to find a drink to pair with the food. Crisp Belgian-style fries are addictive and served with a choice of sauces, such as garlic-rosemary mayo or the aptly named “Hell.” Large plump bratwursts on locally baked rolls may be enjoyed unembellished or topped with the likes of caramelized onions, grilled sweet peppers, hot peppers or sauerkraut. The restaurant’s rustic décor and location in a funky old building provide a welcome balance to the area's sleek new architecture.
