Chris King, Bracey Rogers, and Skylar Keith thought Capitol Hill could use a little Southern touch. Welcome their newest “no frills, no fuss” installment, Bar Sue, which opened Sunday at the former Lucky 8s China House at 14th and Union. Capitol Hill Seattle tells us to expect "a watering hole featuring sweet tea bourbon, Dixie beer, Carolina style BBQ, and Louisiana style blackened catfish.”
With every loss there is a gain. Central District may have lost Med Mix for the time being, but it got Central Pizza. (We took a closer look this morning.) Swing by its spot at the former All-Purpose Pizza on 29th and Jackson for unique thin-crust pies as well as sandwiches, pasta, and vegetarian options.
A new Korean deli opened Wednesday at the former Oshan Sushi location, according to My Ballard. Kimchi House will sell homemade kimchi, of course; try it in the form of grilled pork belly served with sautéed kimchi and rice, or as kimchi fries. And take note: they’re cash only.
Bar Cantinetta is officially open for dinner this Friday, says Eater Seattle. It’s a boozier version of Wallingford’s Cantinetta and will occupy the former La Cote space at 2811 E Madison. The menu will consist of about four pasta dishes, an entree, and a dozen small plates that can be combined for a full meal or shared as snacks. And of course expect a few signature cocktails as well.
My Ballard tells us that Ballard’s Aster Coffee Lounge is being replaced by Toast Ballard, and it's open for business as of Friday. Owners Frank Trevino and Ashely Bucenec hope to offer more food options and eventually a cocktail menu.
Earlier this week we shared some of the details about Ethan Stowell’s latest (tiny) addition to his ever-growing empire. Mkt. (pronounced “market”) has its sights set on a mid-September opening at 2108 N 55th St in Tangletown. Expect a menu centered around four categories: snack, meat, fish, and vegetables. And at just 600-square-feet, it’s his smallest restaurant to date. Intimacy at its finest.
Molly Moon’s Ice Cream and Joey Kitchen
Molly Moon’s ice cream and Joey Kitchen (the national flagship for Joey Restaurants) are set to join Liam’s and Din Tai Fung at U-Village’s south-side expansion, according to Eater Seattle. Expect an opening sometime this fall.
