Nice spot in Pioneer Square with a perfect name: Damn the Weather.

The space is in one of the original buildings on 1st, between Yesler and S Washington Street, and only a few blocks from the Pioneer Square light rail station. They are open for lunch during the week but serve dinner every night.

The menu is ever changing but expect oysters, soups, sandwiches, wraps and charcuterie.  On one visit I was torn between the burger and the falafel sandwich. The waitstaff recommended the sandwich so I went for it. Typical falafel but the brioche bun and the sriracha aioli made it unique. The aioli was only very mildly spicy which let the more subtle flavors of the falafel shine. The accompanying green salad was light and delicious with pickled onions and radishes. Like fries? Give the duck fat example a try.

Dessert of the day was a mocha pot de creme. Very lite example…almost like milk chocolate…and the coffee flavor was barely detectable so keep that in mind if you lean toward coffee flavors. On another visit, an eggnog creme brulee was the choice…outstanding!

Wine, beer, cider and cocktails offered. Orange wines as well.

Note: 21 and over and they don’t take reservations.

Service was good.
