Opening Tonight: the Hummingbird Saloon and Bar Cotto

Posted by on Fri, Feb 15, 2013 at 2:30 PM


Right near Full Tilt in Columbia City, the Hummingbird Saloon specializes in Cornish pasties (YUM), and we hear from the excited neighbors that there will be shuffleboard. The name reportedly came from the owner admiringly watching a hummingbird attack a crow.

Next door to Anchovies & Olives, Ethan Stowell's smallish, windowed Bar Cotto serves salumi (including culatello, porchetta, and three kinds of prosciutto), small plates, bruschetta, and pizzas with various fancy toppings—and, of course, cocktails (some barrel-aged). Meats are $7 each or five for $25, and other stuff ranges from $7 to $16; seems like it might add up, but for the penurious, there's happy hour every day from 4 to 6 p.m. The name, they say, “basically just means ‘cooked’ in Italian.”

It's almost drinks o'clock!

So happy, since I live about a block away from the Hummingbird! having a bar I can crawl home from is a blessing in my war against the liver.
