It may be quite awhile before the city gets its first cafe selling Northwest Native food, but in the meantime Seattle Center is due for another new restaurant.

According to PR flack Melissa Jurcan, Pop Kitchen + Bar will open July 15 inside Experience Music Project for lunch and dinner. "We will have extended hours, past the hours that EMP is open for museum goers," Jurcan explains, "and we do have a full service bar."

Pop is the latest venture from Cameron Reed Concepts, operator of Soups On! downtown and Chandy’s Natural Cafe at Microsoft Commons. The team has been working for months to rehab the space once belonging to the very colorful Revolution Cafe, a concept of Schwartz Brothers Restaurants.

As for the locally minded, new American menu, several offerings have been dropped via Twitter. There’s a bacon-wrapped kobe dog; the "Cheese Dream," made with mozzarella, Tillamook vintage white cheddar, sweet pickles, and garlic aioli slathered on a slice of Macrina brioche; caesar deviled eggs; and a blueberry crumble complete with candied walnuts and lemon-olive oil frozen yogurt.

Stay tuned for more details.
