Bar Sajor is lovely during the daytime, and maybe especially so in the spring. The huge windows look out on the newly leafy trees of cobblestone Occidental Park, onto the always dignified, old-timey buildings of Pioneer Square. Bar Sajor is not currently open on the weekends, so to experience the daytime greatness—it’s Matt Dillon’s new place, so what you will eat is also of springtime, of nearby and now—you have to come for weekday lunch, or for afternoon snacks and a bottle of wine. It is a very good way to play hooky, rain or shine. (Bar Sajor, 323 Occidental Ave S, 682-1117, 11 am–8 pm)
