Getting happy at the Hotel Sorrento

When I’m around First Hill in Seattle in the early evening, I often like to visit the Hunt Club in the Hotel Sorrento. The hotel itself is venerable and gorgeous inside, all wood and classical. The Hunt Club, too, is a step back into the 1920s.

The Hunt Club’s happy hour is top-notch. Recently, for a birthday treat, I went for one of the establishment’s “Hour Tower,” where you get a vertical stack of three appetizers for $18.

I went with a dish of clams in tomato/fennel broth; a grilled lamb sausage with balsamic pearl onions; and rabbit pâté with cornichon, mustard and crisp crackers.

The clams were dispatched with alacrity.

The pate was my favorite. It was served colder than I’d enjoy such a meat product at home, restaurants have food safety regulations to abide by (I asked). Still, it was some quite nice potted bunny.
