A Terrible Beauty - Renton, WA
The Irish pub in Renton known as 'A Terrible Beauty' (from 'Easter' a William Butler Yeats poem) has gone through a number of names and owners until getting it right this time. Though the outside of the building is one of the ugliest thing ever designed, the inside takes you straight to Limerick. You won't go wrong ordering from the kitchen - both Irish and NW fare are done well and reasonably priced. The staff is friendly and don't be surprised to discover a musician or two playing next to the fireplace on a Sunday afternoon. This was a multi-visit effort (or just an excuse to go back).
