The epitome of an urban oasis, this rooftop patio peering over Capitol Hill doubles as an herb garden for homegrown ingredients. Ironically, the Seattle Raindrop, made with vodka, ginger, grapefruit, cardamom and cava, is a popular drink in summer months. So are copious amounts of rose, found among the extensive wine list, which offers glass pours ranging from $8 to $19. There are five rotating local beers on tap: Georgetown Brewing, Bale Breakers and Black Raven are popular players. The rooftop is a stellar place to sit during lunch, and even when the crowds flock to the top for an alfresco dinner, the “fire bar” at the southern point of the patio is reserved for walk-ins.
