Maria Hines sets a high bar for her Pacific Northwestern menu at Tilth in Wallingford, making nearly everything from scratch with almost entirely organic ingredients, including her own butter, vinegar and cheeses. At the Golden Beetle, which opened in Ballard in 2011, Hines uses that same commitment to excellent sourcing for a menu inspired by the robust flavors of Turkey, Egypt, Morocco and Lebanon. Certain nights, Hines steps out of the kitchen to man the bar, where she crafts food-cocktail hybrids. The Kalymnos, a shaken cocktail with Hendricks Gin, Greek yogurt, lemon juice, thyme honey syrup and sumac tincture, recalls a drink she had while rock climbing in Greece.
