I love a restaurant with a great patio. I think sitting outside with friends & loved ones is one of my favorite things. D and I recently went up to Seattle to see some of our close friends. Seattle is such a fun town to explore. It’s so much bigger than Portland and there are always new things to explore. Seattle is a great place to explore for a weekend. 3 days is almost a perfect amount of time to spend! Rain or shine, we always seem to have a blast. With Seattle being about 3 hours away- it’s easy to get there by car, bus or train. My friends Lew & Michelle are also a bit foodie, so when we visit- they have the best places in mind to take us!
The group really wanted to a restaurant bar within walking distance of Queen Anne and one with a great patio. We ended up at The Innkeeper in Seattle. The Innkeeper describes itself as “Bar food with a Latin soul for discriminating swashbucklers.” I also really loved their bar program. I went with the Moscow Mule- lovely. I will admit the service was a bit “off” the day we visited, but on the bright side, it meant we could sit on the patio and catch up. The food is a mix of Latin fusion. I really enjoyed my menu pick- chorizo burrito. Our crew took a mini-lesson in the “golden hour” on the patio, and the pictures are some of my favorites from the trip.
The patio at The Innkeeper is only open in the Spring/Summer. I would choose this place, almost entirely for the patio. It’s a tiny sanctuary in the city. If you are sitting inside, this place is the perfect place to pop-in for a drink. Let me know if you give this place a try!
