Ciudad Grill

Brought to you by Seattle restaurateur Marcus Lalario and James Beard award-winning chef Matt Dillon, Ciudad is an eclectic, grill-focused restaurant and bar with a compelling vision extending to both menu and interior design. 

Just inside the entrance, you'll see the outdoor charcoal grill as you pass through to the dining room. Meats & vegetables cook over the coals and are complimented with small plates & sauces; flavors are influenced from all over the globe. The kitchen team makes everything fresh here, from flatbread to their black garlic sauce. Everything is meant to be shared. 

Bar Ciudad

Bar Ciudad is a cozy bar with a spacious outdoor courtyard. When the weather is fair, or when the fire pit is going, patrons can sit outside, order refreshments from the walk-up window, and watch the planes land.

Bar Ciudad also serves savory rotisserie chicken (and an array of other menu items) alongside their tasty and inventive cocktails.  

  Bar Ciudad includes a walk-up window bar, where patrons can order and enjoy drinks in the Oxbow courtyard.
