A warm, narrow, wooden pub between Phinney Ridge and Ballard, the Dray was made for lazy weekend afternoons, with small tables great for playing cards and a couple of cozy window nooks that accommodate piles of friends. It feels like being on a calm ship. A dozen rotating taps are well selected for discerning beer drinkers, and there are more than 100 bottled options (plus good coffee). But what keep me coming back are the sandwiches. In particular: the rosemary minis, four perfect grilled-cheese sandwiches with fresh rosemary and aioli for only $5.
