Witness is a spirited place on Capitol Hill with a Southern accent. Y’all need to get a load of the Dixie poutine, a bacon gravy-doused, pimento-cheesed-up rendition of that French Canadian fry dish. Talk about playing with boundaries. While the now-classic combos of chicken and waffles and shrimp and grits are tempting, don’t overlook the pork and beans - it's nothing like the canned version eaten around the campfire, but rather an uber-rich chunk of belly slow cooked with fat corona beans. All those rich dishes make a mighty fine base for exploring the many bourbons behind the bar. And three cheers for the appearance of a Ramos Gin Fizz, a New Orleans classic not often sipped in the Pacific Northwest.
