Stoneburner at Hotel Ballard

When I moved to New York City a decade ago, I couldn’t believe how bad they had it. Oh sure, they’ve got Mario Batali, Daniel Boulud and so many other of the country’s best chefs.

A new watering hole sits along the steel paths of the pedestrian walkway downtown, offering a sweet escape during long ferry waits.

The glue to any good neighborhood is, of course, its neighborhood bar. Green Lake has The Latona, Phinney Ridge has The Park Pub, South Park would be lost without Loretta's, and the epicenter of Columbia City is Lottie's.
