This popular New American restaurant highlights a slice of Seattle’s history. Named both after Roy Olmstead (famed former Seattle cop turned bootlegger) and the Olmsted brothers (who designed Volunteer Park), the restaurant captures the spirit of the neighborhood. Nestled in a space that has been host to many beloved restaurants, owners Jesse Elliott, Alison Holcomb, Gregory Holcomb, and Lisa Tomlinson have hopes to cultivate another popular community hangout. The booze and food menus are approachable, but elevated — it even offers a delightful mix for vegans and vegetarians.
Pro tip: Order their “baby bird” cocktail (mostly because it comes in a gold owl-shaped goblet)!

Love the vibe of Olmstead and the owners are fun and fantastic people. Definitely give the Poutine Fries a try and say Yes to the Baby Bird.
