Quimby’s: Generic Slab

Walk the blocks around the new Quimby’s at 19th (1502 NW 19th Ave., 222-3416; quimbysat19th.com) and you’ll see signs this geographically desirable but obstinately industrial Northwest ’hood is evolving. Orange-vested surveyors are casing warehouses, and an advance guard is hosting a sparsely attended running event. For Slabtown to embrace its fate of shiny, mixed-use development, it will need proper bars. And thus, Quimby’s. This nondescript spot across from a rubber company has seven taps, middle-shelf bourbon and comfy booths. The twist? Food carts in the back lot, which supplement the bar’s pizza-centric menu. Grab kraut or brisket before sinking into a chair behind the glowing Video Lottery machine. Quimby’s used to be called Cheers. Service is early-episode Diane; expect Frasier Crane sometime in season 3.
