After two nights rough camping, we chose Tacoma as our final night's destination before heading back to Europe. I'd been to Tacoma many times before, but never to the Pacific Grill. My husband spied it from across the street and we decided to give it a try. It was bustling and busy on a Thursday evening (~730 pm) and we snagged two central seats at the bar. Great place to sit, people watch, and peruse the menu. Well, menuS. There was a daily menu, a bar menu, and full dinner menu. Lots to read and worth it. We dined tapas style, ordering a few things and asking them to be presented as they were ready. It was perfect for a small bar space, and we got to sample much of the variety: bahn mi, street tacos, bacon-wrapped dates, risotto balls, smoked steelhead, and mushroom paté. All this washed down with a lovely crisp rosé. The service was nice and friendly, and even though the bartender admitted to not knowing much about wine, he was able to confirm a recommendation from someone in the back and was more than willing to let us try the wine before selecting it. Here's the most amazing part...small plates are 50% off during Happy Hour...which is basically all day, 10:30 am - 10 pm. It was a very pleasant surprise and we loved it!
