Bastille Cafe & Bar

Bar, Restaurant
5307 Ballard Ave NW

Jason Stoneburner (Union, How to Cook a Wolf) runs the kitchen and Erik Carlson (Moshi Moshi, the Redwood Room and Slanted Door in San Francisco) heads the cocktail lounge at Bastille, which has a 5,000-square-foot rooftop garden for hyper-fresh vegetables in season. Bastille is absolutely beautiful, like walking into a sepia-toned Parisian photograph; the interior is big and bustling, but candlelit and romantic. However, the food—French standards that aren't rocket science—is uneven.
