Recently refreshed Thackeray comes with a brand-new addition: Claret wine bar, located in the venue's back half. This popular neighborhood restaurant and bar, straddling the line between Fremont and Wallingford, draws enthusiastic support from loyal locals. The spacious, light-filled venue offers an inviting atmosphere that combines welcoming service with an eclectic interior. (Sit on at the whimsical "porch swing" up front, or cozy up next to a stocked bookshelf in the back.) The seasonally-inspired menu melds northwest ingredients and Mediterranean influences. Share tasty dishes like mezze spreads, braised meatball subs, hamachi crudo and lemon-anchovy charred broccoli, or dive into mains like seared black cod, Ethiopian spiced fried chicken, ancient grain risotto and the popular house burger. Drink offerings, developed by Heavy's Spirits Director Casey Robison and Wine Director Chris Horn, feature a wide assortment of spirits, cocktails, wine and beer; rotating taps feature local brews and, since we're in Seattle kombucha, too.
- Group Friendly: "Happy hour takes place from 3 to 6 p.m. Thanks to this restaurant's proximity to the Burke-Gilman Trail, this destination proves the perfect spot for cyclists and walkers/runners to begin or end their journey. Be sure to check out the venue's brand-new Claret wine bar, opened in April!"
- Best for Group Friendly Because: This spacious restaurant and bar straddles the line between Fremont and Wallingford and features a patio plus brand-new wine bar in the back.
