23 Hoyt is many things to many people. Trendy young urbanites come to socialize at one of the most elegant happy hours in town, with One-Dollar Snacks (house-made potato chips, fried chick peas with hot pepper), Two-Dollar Snacks (bruschetta), Three-Dollar Snacks (two oysters with mignonette; grilled flatbread with leeks, goat cheese, pancetta, and thyme), and so on. After 9 pm Fridays and Saturdays, they settle in for a post-prandial drink to a backdrop of live music. Older couples and singles alike come for chef Chris Israel's legendary cuisine. He deftly blends pan-Mediterranean influences with Northwest ingredients to create unusual dishes like cardamom-spiced quail with a Turkish pistachio-parsley sauce, or grilled halibut with a Moroccan tagine of peppers, charmoula, and preserved lemon. The signature Caesar salad and the spaetzle with braised rabbit, chanterelles, bacon, and crispy shallots are other winners. The cavernous space has a slick New York look—all muted olive green and charcoal gray, with soaring windows. For maximum quiet and romance, ask to be seated upstairs. For the buzzing scene, downstairs by the bar is the place to be.

Open Tuesdays through Saturdays 4 to 10 pm.
