The Walrus And The Carpenter

I found a new watering hole in Seattle - The Walrus and The Carpenter, located in the lively neighborhood of Ballard. Nestled in a converted warehouse type space, the decor had lots of whimsical charm - oysters on ice, a chandelier built of branches, and a behind the bar crew of sous chefs sporting striped Royal-Tenenbaums-esque headbands.

The food and cocktail list was inventive, creative, and like the decor - unique. My friends and I really enjoyed everything we ordered - in particular the watermelon panzanella and cremeux de bourgogne with pickled plums. When we arrived for happy hour, the place was nearly empty, and by the time we departed there was standing room only. What a fun find!

Even more reason to return to Seattle now! I don't remember if I ever visited the Ballard area but it looks like it'll be a destination for me for sure.
