(Eder's old benches inlaid with his tin templates serve as tables.) Maybe it's this deeply authentic sense of place, or the fact that the noshes are consistently better than they need to be (grilled marinated flank steak sandiwch with cilantro aioli, grilled double-smoked pork sausage with apple chutney and hot mustard, and grilled meatloaf with mushroom bourbon gravy). Perhaps it's the enchanting fact that they insist upon making all their cocktails with fresh-squeezed juices and nary a mix in sight. Whatever the reason, Burien oldsters, families and after-work cocktailers have embraced the Tin Room as their "third place" of choice.
