Brimmer & Heeltap Restaurant Review

: Housed in a lonely brick building, far from the bustling restaurants of Ballard or Fremont, Brimmer & Heeltap is a maverick: in location and for professional service, and in the eclectic, Korean-tinged menu. The bright dining room, split into two spaces, matches the restaurant's beer-themed name, while the boisterous colors of its outdoor area look like they came straight off a Pinterest board. Chef Mike Whisenhunt shows off his Korean-cooking pedigree by infusing standard New American dishes with quick hits of ingredients such as daikon in the steak tartare, fermented black beans on glazed prawns, and toasted rice powder on the koji rice sorbet dessert. The drinks menu pays equal service to craft cocktails, microbrews and an eclectic collection of wine from the Pacific Northwest and Western Europe.
