Introducing Scott Dolich's Bent Brick, Opening Next Week

New, 1 comment

[Avila, 6/20/11]

Another day, another James Beard Award-nominee opening a neighborhood tavern. Park Kitchen chef/owner Scott Dolich reveals the interior of his soon-to-debut NW tavern Bent Brick, which transforms a former shoe store into a wood-and-metal-meets-brick-and-ivy bar. Designed by Annen Design Industries (which also worked on Park Kitchen), the space features 42 seats (with an additional dozen spots at the bar), not including a front lounge space/waiting area that draws the eye with a "Jenga tree" as its focal point.

And as promised, the Bent Brick's menus will feature a carefully curated selection of wine, spirits, and beer, all sourced locally ("We wanted the bar as local as we could get it," Dolich says). Expect 14 tap wines, 5-6 tap beers (with an additional half dozen available by the bottle), and a 10-item cocktail menu to start, featuring PK bartender Adam Robinson's infusions (he's moving to the Bent Brick full-time). A 15-item food menu, executed by executive chef Will Preisch, features options like quinoa and kale fritters with carrot cream; beets served with farro, chicory, cream cheese, and a seed vinaigrette; and a plate of roast pork with carrots, root beer glaze, and almond yogurt. Bent Brick opens to the public on Tuesday, June 28.
