Mark Restaurant and Bar, Olde Burien

Mark Restaurant and Bar Website

A new Sunday morning tradition in my household is our stroll over to Olde Burien and a stop in to have breakfast and a Bloody Mary at Mark restaurant and Bar on 152nd St.  Mark is what I would classify as an upper class dive bar.  They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner with a small bar area that we enjoy, or seated in the dining room. There is also a dining patio for those sunny days that allow you to bring your dog along to dine. They are very pet friendly here. The bar area has large windows that look out onto the main street and are open when weather allows, creating a nice fresh air dining experience as well as sidewalk tables if you really want to be in the center of the streetside action. The happy hour here is excellent and exceeds your basic offering of buffalo wings and nachos. Well, they have that too but they also offer other things like lavender fries and a prime rib quesadilla. Lots of choices and a decent selection of cocktails and drafts.

The breakfasts are quite good. I have either the Mark Potatoes and Eggs with Bacon, or when I am feeling like something more decadent the Crab Eggs Benedict.  Toasted English muffin halves layered with fresh crisp spinach, sliced tomatoes, Dungeness Crab, poached eggs and a velvety Hollandaise  sauce make this a delicious mouthful of pleasure. The freshness of the veggies and the richness of the eggs and sauce make for a perfect textural bite. The bloody marys are delicious with just the right amount of kick.  I certainly recommend Mark Restaurant and Bar for a great leisurely breakfast. They are open from 8am every day.
