In ShortHere's something you don't see everyday: A gastropub for cowboys. Chefs Dana Tough and Brian McCracken are taking risks in Beltown by serving small plates of classic dishes with trendy touches, which means there's pork belly sliders next to tagliatelle with parmesan foam on the seasonally informed menu. The cocktails themselves follow the theme with a bevy of whiskey and bourbon concoctions on the drink menu--some sweet, all of them stiff. The slim restaurant exudes rustic kitsch with its tall hardwood tables and stands out amidst the rest of the neighborhood's high-volume gloss. The crowd runs the gamut from well-heeled Belltown folk to foodie hipsters venturing down from Capitol Hill.
