Rain, rain, stay away! We need these springtime afternoons and summer evenings where we can play shuffleboard and ping pong in Seattle's concrete jungle, surrounded by skyscrapers, and pretend we're on a cruise ship.

That would be Frolik (on the 5th floor roof of the Motif Hotel), where Adam Stevenson's kitchen sends out tasty dips, goat cheese fritters, "squealers" (pork sandwiches) and black bean sliders. The udon broth was a bit weak, but the grilled octopus ($16 as a to-be-shared appetizer) and the pan-roasted halibut with couscous ($30 at dinner) were just fine. Not surprisingly, the lobster "mac-n-cheese" is a popular item on the bar menu.
Destination Hotels is the management company for the property, which occupies the former headquarters of the Peoples Bank and was known briefly as Fifth Avenue Red Lion. They also run the Woodmark at Carillon Point in Kirkland. With shuffleboard, ping pong, and outdoor fireplaces, it really is a magic space that could easily become a prime rendez vous for the heart of downtown.
