Skillet at Seattle Center: It’s On

Josh Henderson will open a grab-and-go counter in the reimagined food court.

A Skillet burger can soon be yours at Seattle Center.

For a couple months now Josh Henderson has reportedly had his eye on Seattle Center House. Graham Baba Architects is revamping the food court there, which will reopen in late spring with a beefed up culinary program.

On Tuesday Henderson confirmed to Nosh he has inked a deal with Seattle Center and will bring his Skillet enterprise to the historic property.

Henderson isn’t opening another Skillet Diner, exactly. Rather Henderson described the setup as a grab-and-go counter with an area to take a seat while watching the kitchen. “It will be a fantastic spot to just hang out and have a burger and a beer.”

The menu will be comprised of “greatest hits”: pork belly on waffle, biscuits and gravy, the fried chicken sandwich, poutine, the burger. As for an ETA: “I really am not sure of the opening date as there are contractor questions that are being mulled over right now. We are hoping for June.”
