We have it on good word that Brave Horse Tavern, the second in the trio of new restaurants from mega-restaurateur Tom Douglas hath brought to the South Lake Union Amazon campus, opens today. Earlier this week his pasta spot Cuoco opened its doors on the ground floor of the historic Terry Avenue Building. And starting at lunchtime today, says Seattle Mag's Allison Scheff, the upstairs tavern is open and serving burgers and hearty bar fare that includes fried cheese curds, a custom-ground burger and and an all-day dish of pork shoulder ham with two eggs, hash browns and toast.
Heading up the kitchen is Brian Walcyck, who moved over from Palace Kitchen in Belltown, the third restaurant Douglas ever opened back in 1996. Preview-goers have been freaking out about the menu of pretzels made on-site in a special brick oven.
The 24 beer taps includes a special house pale ale made by Schooner Exact, of which Seattle Beer News approves. Leave the minors at home--this spot is 21+. The third and final T-Doug restaurant occupying the building is Tibetan dumpling spot Ting Momo, which would open any day now.
