Brass Tacks is a convivial, hip hangout offering elevated, locally-sourced pub fare and craft cocktails in a historic Georgetown building, set to the sound of a live jazz trio Tuesday through Saturday nights.
Established in 2013.
Seattle Mag says:
In January 2013, brothers Alex and Jonathan Parisi and Skylar Keith knocked a hole in the wall Brass Tacks to their neighboring spot, Brass Tacks, which is creatively decorated with an assortment of seating, a shuffleboard table, a doll in a birdcage hanging in a corner and an old Bingo board blinking on the wall.
In the large, open kitchen, herbs hang from the ceiling, and chef Chris Opsata (of Urban Enoteca) and crew dish out a more expansive menu, highlighted by a house-smoked brisket mac 'n' cheese..
It also has solid cocktails and friendly bartenders, as well as house infusions (including a sour apple and cinnamon bourbon)..
Meet the Manager
Chris Opsata was born and raised in the Seattle area. After high school, he moved to Southern California to attend the Le Cordon Bleu culinary program at the California School of Culinary Arts in Pasadena, California.
He started his career with Restaurants Unlimited in Redondo Beach, California. After six years in the frenetic LA food scene he migrated back to the Northwest.
Chris was named Executive Chef of Urban Enoteca in 2010. While the venue became popular for weddings and corporate events, Chris' food was what kept the customers coming back. His take on Northwest cuisine was received with rave reviews.
In January 2013, he became part of Brass Tacks in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle; where the focus is on seasonal, sustainable and locally inspired fare paired with classic cocktails.
