Join the perpetual Oktoberfest with traditional schnitzel, bratwurst, and goulash.

Ballard hosts the one-two punch of hot noodle house Thaiku, and its late-night, apothecary-style bar, Fu Kun Wu Lounge. Thaiku’s regional Thai cuisine is doled out in an antiques-filled space that was once the location of a notorious opium den.

Tuck into fish-and-chips and clam chowder at this waterfront restaurant.

At this Tacoma after-work institution, guests come for comfort food and solid cocktails. The space is stylish with a sleek curved bar, high top seating, and mod tubular lighting fixtures.

Pasta is the star at chef-restauranteur Ethan Stowell's Tavolàta. House-crafted rigatoni, casarecce, conchiglie, linguini, and more, are made on-site daily.
