For Jordan’s Birthday we hit up 2 very sought-after Seattle spots: Canon for a pre-dinner drink, and then Lark for the main event (It just so happened to be Seattle Restaurant Week: 3 courses for $28)! These establishments are literally right next door to each other. You can’t go wrong with this combo.

Our fancy cocktails...On the right, Beuregarde's Breakfast (bourbon, montenegro, lemon, blueberry preserves, bitters) and an "elevated" Manhattan on the left.

Both spots were incredible and worth a trip back. The service at Canon was awesome (I wasn’t sure if there would be some major ego there after Anthony Bourdain stopped by during his Layover). The atmosphere is great, and quite obviously so are the cocktails!

We eat dinner early...by the time we left Lark was packed!

Lark is one of those places I have heard about for years and somehow I’ve never gone (that and a list of about 200 other Seattle establishments). We had a great time and enjoyed some wonderful food.

I couldn't resist these at Canon - An incredible awesome bar snack: Angostura Bourbon Nuts (cashew, pretzel, caramel corn)
