Friday night I met up with some photographer friends to take what we call a "photostroll" around Pike Place Market, the Olympic Sculpture Garden and then down the waterfront towards Pioneer Square. After a couple hours of walking around a few of us decided to stop in at Fado Irish Pub for a bite to eat and drink.
Fado is one of those places that provides consistent, if not stellar, food. You can always count on a good burger or fish and chips and they have several items on the menu that are Irish derived. Bangers and Mash, Shepherds Pie, and Corned Beef and Cabbage come to mind. They have a good selection of beer, but sometimes their mixed drinks leave something to be desired. They are accommodating to large groups, which is very nice. They have all types of events including music, poker and featured sporting events on the TV.
All in all, Fado is a friendly and welcoming place. And sometimes that’s all you need.
