Destiny Sund and Paul Verano, co-owners of The Confectional, are plotting a spot along the north wall of the food court, now dubbed the Armory. Sund describes the setup as “in-between a cart and a kiosk,” with a cold case in the front stocking confections seasonal and otherwise. The selection will be “ever so slightly” truncated compared to the storefronts in Pike Place Market and on Capitol Hill, noted Verano—but will include the wildly popular Über Dips: bite-sized cakes dipped in dark chocolate.
Sund and Verano, who are also seeking a fourth location elsewhere, are shooting for a late May launch.
And while we’re on the topic, Bigfood (among some others) has finalized plans to open at the Armory. Expect an expanded menu of the Caribbean-East Indian meats and slaws found at the truck; beer and wine; and possibly a counter with stools for people to perch.
