Open Seattle Japanese Language and Culture Meetup

I know what you're thinking. Not another Vietnamese restaurant slash ale house. Why, there's like half a dozen of those in my neighborhood alone.

But if you're in the mood to have a beer more interesting than "333" Vietnamese export beer to accompany your pho, then I think you'll be ok with the cliche of the Vietnamese pub.

The manager says it's a little hard to share some items, so he recommends allowing people to order separately. Order food on your own, but feel free to share appetizers with your neighbors. They will handle separate checks, which means that I may be able to go home before Kojiro starts screaming; just make sure you let your waiter know who is on your tab.

Bus access is easy with routes bound for lower Queen Anne; I think 2, 8 and 13 should do the trick. Parking can be a slightly obnoxious misadventure in this area, but there are usually some options on the "other" 1st Ave two blocks west of here, and pay lots aren't so bad as long as no major rock concerts are going on.

I love the atmosphere of 10 Mercer for Nijikai, because it's just marginally un-Seattle, and because they're the only place in town that unabashedly offers pregnant women non-alcoholic drinks in cocktail glasses, but if you're looking for a more down-market post-dinner drinking venue you could always go to the classic Queen Anne Buckley's or that funky Irish pub around the corner.
