Deli | Capitol Hill / First Hill, Seattle

I saw "By The Pound" featured on Evening Magazine and was intrigued by the creative, recreation of the prohibition theme "hidden back room." The attention to detail with the decor and flavor of that space was like stepping back in time, and the pre-arrangement process to have access to it just adds to the intrigue. I brought my husband, daughter and her boyfriend for dinner. I gave them the address and just said..."Be at this address at 6:00." My husband knew no more than that, although we rode together. I booked our reservation for the "Back Room" through "Open Table," and received an email with a secret password that I was to share with the employee at the deli counter. At that point, she disappeared for a bit, came back and said "follow me." Well, my guests were freaking out a bit as we walked through what appeared to be the door to a walk in refrigerator. But WOW!!! When we entered that space it was truly a jaw dropping experience. They LOVED it! As for the food...equally as creative and fantastic! The bread you used for our sandwiches was exquisite. My daughter ordered the Charcuterie plate and it was beautiful and yummy. Our drinks were awesome. If you want to surprise someone, or take out of town guests to someplace really different or just get a great meal, I highly recommend "By The Pound!" Well...as you can tell...I will be back! More

The food was excellent as well as the service. Waiter recommended a dish prepared by the mother of the owner and it was superb. The spice in food dishes we ordered were nicely balance to be favorable, not just hot! Also the accommodation was great. I have a hearing impairment and the waiter re-positioned the table to allow my wife and me to have a nice conversation if vibrant atmosphere. A real class act! My wife and I recommend Chavez and will definitely return. A great addition to Capital Hill's many choices of restaurants! More

Contemporary Mexican | Capitol Hill / First Hill, Seattle

So. Freaking. Delicious. I went to Barrio for lunch. I work downtown, and took a ride share to get there. And I will do it again. And plan a happy hour. It was that good. The service was friendly, helpful, and fast, and they kept our water glasses filled. I went with a friend, and we ordered 2 separate 3 course meals so that we could share and try new things. For the first course, we had mesa cakes and a chorizo empanada. (Please forgive any spelling mistakes - I'm spelling from memory.) The Mesa cakes were like deep-fried cubes of polenta, if you're not familiar. They had a wonderful sauce, and formed a large portion. Delicious. We also shared the empanada dish. The pastry was light and flaky. The filling was vibrant but not too spicy. The sauce and garnish was delicious. My only complaint is that the empanada is not a regular menu item. For our main course, we had a burrito and chilaquiles. The burrito was large and a good burrito. You know what a good burrito tastes like. The chilaquiles. Holy crap. So good. Here's a description: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chilaquiles. Basically, they're Mexican nachos, but butter than any American nachos. Ever. For dessert, we go the strawberries and creme popsicles, and the ice cream taco. The popsicles were good, but a little too icy. The cream and toasted nuts were a perfect topping. The taco was made from a waffle cone, but the kicker was the cinnamon whipped cream. I could eat that from a tub. I'm definitely going back. More

Love it here. We came as a group of 7 of different ages, and the staff was super nice and on top of it. They answered all questions and even brought over a complimentary dessert for the birthday girl. Wasn't too crowded and was delicious as always. They had great non-sushi options for a few people from the group who aren't sushi fans. We ate in the dining room, but I've been there for happy hour, too, which is awesome and a super good deal.
