With all the early press — both locally and nationally, my guess is there won’t be a lot of room to move at Tavern Law when the Capitol Hill restaurant and speakeasy-styled drinks-joint makes its public debut at 12th and Madison tonight. Doors open at 5 p.m. and listen up: it’s 21-and-over.
Considering the talent at hand (chefs Brian McCracken, Dana Tough and their barman David Nelson — who brought us Belltown’s Spur gastropub), and the foot traffic alone on this Pike/Pine corridor (they’re ensconced in the Trace Lofts complex), chances are you might just have to poke your nose in and head elsewhere. Not that you’d have far to go given the implosion of worthy places to eat and drink within a few short blocks.
