The shadowy allure of The Old Sage Smoked Meats & Malts offers Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood an urban hearth, celebrating humble meats and vegetables, paired with all varieties of malted beverages for sipping. Under the muralled gaze of a teetotal-ling City pioneer, guests of The Old Sage enjoy skillfully smoked meats and seafood, crafted by two chefs recognized as some of the nation's best: Brian McCracken and Dana Tough.
Using unique, non-traditional smoking techniques, the Chefs draw out delicious flavors. Simple meats, starches and vegetables are revered here. The incandescently lit bar hosts a library of scotch and a rotating selection of artisanal craft beers…which satisfy those less moderate in this city of pioneers.
