This summer, Ballard’s neighborhood gastro pub Brimmer and Heeltap unveiled a brand new outdoor patio space. With outdoor and indoor seats, the new space greatly expands the restaurant’s capacity. It’s an especially popular outdoor seating area in the summer. While technically a separate entity from the original space, its design aesthetic is nicely integrated with the original area that was once the home of Le Gourmand.
Since opening in 2013, chef Mike Whisenhunt (formerly of Revel) and business partner Jen Doak have created a strong cocktail menu with dinner dishes composed mostly of fresh, local ingredients. Today, the restaurant remains a popular joint among dinner and weekend brunch fans thanks to creative fusion menu. Oh, and in case you’re wondering, the restaurant’s name refers to a proper pour. A full pour is considered a “brimmer,” while a “heeltap” is what remains at the end.
Brimmer and Heeltap is located at 425 NW Market Street in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle. It’s across the street from the popular local coffee bar Slate Coffee Roasters.
