Juicebox Goes Brick and Mortar
Healthy, not hippie, is the mantra of chefs Brandin Myett and Kari Brunson, who are transitioning their popular juice popup to a brick-and-mortar cafe at 1517 12th Avenue this fall. Their definition of healthy includes fresh juices, crudo, ceviche, smoked fish, pickles, soups, and salads. And biodynamic wines and juice mimosas. All the better to get you to come back for one of their juice cleanses. juiceboxseattle.com
Hollywood Tavern and Woodinville Whiskey Join Forces
What we knew: Skillet founder Joshua Henderson is taking over the Woodinville tavern long known as Mabel’s and plans to serve a damn fine cheeseburger. What we just found out: Distilling stalwart Woodinville Whiskey will occupy sleek new digs adjoining the tavern, turning a tiny local landmark into a destination--worthy complex in the heart of wine land. The upshot: Come fall you can chase a tasting room visit with a meal, a cocktail, some housemade soft serve, or a game of cornhole on the massive patio that connects these two establishments.
Tom Douglas’s Hotel Ändra Culinary Center Brings the Funk
Next year, an unused space on the second floor of Hotel Ändra—at Fourth and Virginia, also home to Lola—will become T-Doug’s answer to a culinary school, doling out lessons on knife skills, butchering, cocktails, fermentation, cheesemaking, intensive three-day pastry courses, and anything else Douglas employees or local chefs feel like teaching. Like any good temple of culinary education, facilities include 24 cooking stations and a lounge, says Douglas, “so you can prefunk and postfunk.” tomdouglas.com
