Mbar, Seattle, WA

Mbar Restaurant Review

: “Top Chef” competitor Jason Stratton made his name in Seattle with Italian food, so when he hopped on board with the Syrian restaurateurs behind Mamnoon it surprised area restaurant-watchers. Now, though, that move makes sense, as they worked together to bring the city a striking space that honors Stratton’s cooking, Mamnoon’s style and Seattle’s own beauty. From the 14th floor of the 400 Fairview building, the indoor/outdoor venue has the work of local artists everywhere from the doors to the lap blankets that will allow the patio to remain open year-round. Primarily a cocktail-focused spot, Mbar offers classic drinks that get updates, like the Stratton Manhattan, which has Amaro Montenegro in the mix, and the beachy Rum Royale with cantaloupe, rum and sparkling wine. Stratton’s snacks draw inspiration from around the world, including the vaguely Spanish but ultimately addicting fried potatoes with chiles and cilantro. For bigger meals, soft polenta melts with Bolognese bianca and foie gras.
