Hattie's Hat (Ballard)
5231 Ballard Ave NW
Seattle, Wa 98107
With stiff drinks and good food, Hattie's is one of Ballard's most beloved dives. The all-American menu has everything from classic burgers with sweet-potato fries to smoked-salmon club sandwiches and buttermilk-soaked fried chicken (with good stuff for vegetarians, too). Be sure to fully appreciate the bar: Hand-carved in France and brought by boat around Cape Horn (or, alternately, made by Chicago’s Brunswick Company—no one's really sure), it was installed right there in 1904, and it's arguably best enjoyed with an excellent and potent Bloody Mary.
