Capitol Hill Gets an Rx for High-End Drinks Filled

According to Capitol Hill Blog, an intriguing new bar called The Doctor’s Office focusing on Japanese whiskey and grilled skewers plans to open this fall in the spot recently vacated by Korean restaurant Blue Stone Bistro, which announced its closing earlier this week. The bar is the brainchild of an actual doctor — Matthew Powell, MD — who has teamed up bar expert Keith Waldbauer on the project. Patrons should expect an intimate experience in the small 12-seat tasting room and bar on East Olive Way, including hot hand towels, champagne, and an introduction to rare spirits.

We All Scream for Five Courses of Ice Cream

Ice cream goes with everything, right? At least that’s the general concept behind the pop-up dinner on July 14 planned between popular Northwest chain Salt and Straw and the grill-centric restaurant Ciudad. For $150, diners can expect a five-course meal at Ciudad’s Georgetown patio that features dukkah spiced snap peas and asparagus with roasted carrot soft serve and dungeness crab served with grilled sweet corn salad topped with avocado and buttermilk Dippin’ Dots. Guess there’s no need to save room for dessert.

Beer That Will Do Some Good?

West Seattle has a new brewery in the works, with a philanthropic twist. The Good Society Brewery and Public House will open later this year at 2701 California Avenue SW, and the two co-founders told West Seattle Blog that they have a mission to generate a positive impact on the community with each pour, funding local social and environmental causes. They’ll also have 20 beers on tap (most of which they’ll be brewing on their own), including IPAs, farmhouse ales, stouts, lagers, and kettle sours, and a small kitchen serving up flatbreads, sandwiches, and other small plates.
