WHY HERE: Have you ever wanted to sample a slew of pickled things inside a charming Italian aperitivo bar? Well, you don't have to go to Italy to revel in this pastime. Head to Barnacle in Seattle for a taste of hand-shaved Serrano ham, anchovies in Calabrian chili with butter and saltines, marinated castelvetrano olives and, of course, a glass of palate-cleansing amaro.

WHY NOW: Having a whole bar dedicated to the art of pairing cocktails with cured, pickled and preserved food is a revelation in the drinks world. There are more than 20 types of Italian amaro to choose from, so you have a reason to go again and again.
