The menu at Ethan Stowell’s Bramling Cross runs the gamut from familiar pub fare (chicken wings, burgers, wedge salad) to less expected items like raw oysters, pork osso buco, and a “duo of liver” (chicken-liver mousse and seared foie gras). The gastropub, named after a variety of hops, pours eight taps of “ultra-local” beers mostly from North Seattle breweries and also stocks bottles and cans of more than 20 domestic and imported brews.
