Cafe Septieme

This Capitol Hill restaurant, an ideal watering hole for cozy couples and rowdy groups alike, serves comfort food and drinks in an elegant, friendly environment. Septieme's bright red walls are decorated with unique artwork, and from 3 to 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. to midnight Sunday through Thursday, its sturdy tables and booths are decorated with happy-hour menus. Though there's really no mind-blowing price cut, Septieme does offer classic appetizers like towering plates of nachos smothered in cheese, pieces of tender grilled chicken, and guacamole ($6.25), the usual Septieme burger, juicy and fully loaded up ($5.75), a cheeseburger for 50 cents more, and various other munchies. Wash it all down with drink specials that include large, tangy (and strong) margaritas for $5.95, an assortment of well drinks for $3.50, and cheap(er) draft beers—perfect for inducing after-work relaxation. If you can't actually kick back with drinks on some European coast, the next best thing just may be kicking back amid the elegance of Septieme. 214 Broadway Ave. E., 206-860-8858. CAPITOL HILL
