A Trio of Talent at Triumph Bar in Seattle
Casual Atmosphere, Great Wines, and Attentive Service Set Triumph Apart
For Immediate Release
October 22, 2013
Seattle, WA–Triumph Bar opened only recently and already Jim Marsh, Brandon Marsh and Jonathan Doar are taking the culinary scene by storm. This trio of talent brings experience from David Burke’s Fishtail Restaurant and the Old Homestead in Manhattan and their menu takes influences from Italy, the Deep South, and the Pacific Northwest.
Located in Seattle’s Lower Queen Anne neighborhood adjacent to the area’s newest apartment complex, Expo, and right across from the Seattle Center, this 80 seat restaurant/bar boasts a casual atmosphere and offers a full menu, an extensive selection of Italian wines, and an easygoing yet professional ambiance. Co-owner, Jim Marsh, hails from the Pacific Northwest but spent seven years as a sommelier in New York and explains that he wanted to create a wine bar that features all the elements of an upscale restaurant yet isn’t stuffy or intimidating. He says, “At Triumph Bar, wine can be enjoyed in a casual environment but it will be served with the respect it deserves. All our servers are tested regularly on how to make suggestions with confidence and to serve and clear with grace. This type of wine bar has gained a foothold on the East Coast, but I haven’t seen it on this side of the country and think we will do really well with this approach to great wine, food and service. ”
Triumph Bar’s bar program is growing to over 300 selections, with 25 of those open for glass and carafe pours. Along with those there is an extensive selection of Italian wines and their inventive cocktail program features daily batches of jug juice, and house inventions such as the Rye Witch, Sazerac rye, Strega, and carbonated sherry. To pair all these choices with great food, Chef Jonathan Doar has crafted a diverse menu featuring cured Italian meat selections, imported artisan cheeses, small plate options that include West Coast oysters with Champagne mignonette, baby kale Caesar with smoked trout, and fried green tomatoes with Dungeness crab and remoulade. Large plate options feature Whole trout kung pao, beef bollito, and a selection of paninis.
Marsh explains, “Seattle is the ultimate food town and we are thrilled to be serving customers great food in a casual atmosphere without compromising on service or the overall dining experience. Great wine. Outstanding food. Superb service. They’re all equal here. That’s what Triumph is all about.”
Triumph Bar is open daily from 3 pm to late and is located at 114 Republican Street. One hour of validated parking available in the building. Happy Hour daily.
