Fresh Bistro

It was a dark and stormy Halloween. Before I went home to eat candy, watch some ridiculously un-scary 80’s horror movies, and wait for the 3 trick-or-treaters (ok, this year it was only one) who might arrive, I thought I’d treat myself to some good old-fashioned happy hour.

Neighborhood/s: West Seattle

Food: Fresh Bistro offers a fairly wide variety of HH food. Most of the items cost around $9 or $10, which is a little pricy for happy hour, BUT for just $3 you can get one of the best sliders this snacker has ever enjoyed: the Pork Belly Bahn Mi Slider. It is like someone put heaven between two tiny little buns. I also tried the Mussels and Truffled Frites, which were not only delicious, but hefty in portion size, which more than makes up for the $10 price tag.

Drinks:  $3 wells, $3 draft beers, $6 select wines, and $6 margaritas. Naturally I had to try their margarita, which was absolutely PERFECT! Not too sweet and sugary with just enough booze to make me feel extra Halloweeny.

Atmosphere: The decor is modern but inviting. They were playing some golden oldies music station that  made happy hour even happier. It was just lovely sitting in such a cozy environment while the grey weather blustered outside.

Service: Great! Very attentive and friendly.

The Happiest Hours: Mon-Thurs: ALL NIGHT!! (how is it possible that I didn’t know this before??) Friday: 5-7 and 9-10, Sat: 9-10.

Website: The happy hour menu posted online does not list the drink discounts, but only because they forgot to take a photo of the back side of their HH menu. 🙂 See drink prices above.

I highly recommend the Fresh Bistro happy hour. It is the perfect way to get truly gourmet food at reasonable prices. This place gets the full five olives–I had a super Spooktacular Halloween happy hour!
