SoDo Kitchen
The new breakfast and lunch hall operated by Bon Appétit Management Company is located on the third floor of Starbucks corporate headquarters and serves a medley of foods, from strudels to tandoori chicken. Breakfast hours are from 7 to 10, with lunch starting at 11 and ending at 2.

Hummus Cafe
Phinneywood reports on a new joint at 8420 Greenwood Ave N. Seattle Met’s Kathryn Robinson sure has her finger on the pulse of Seattle food trends.

Hot Cakes Molten Chocolate Cakery
The shop, opening mid-month on Ballard Ave, will offer sweets and sauce. In addition to Autumn Martin’s signature cakes, expect bread pudding, creme brûlée, adult milkshakes, cocktails, and more.

Voxx Coffee
Eastlake’s favorite coffee spot has plans for a downtown offshoot. The new location, on the corner of Sixth and University and due in July, will have similar trappings to the original: Lighthouse beans, beer, wine, and quality sandwiches and wraps.

Crumble and Flake
Neil Robertson says he is still waiting on essential construction components and so has to delay the highly anticipated opening until Sunday the 6th.

Chris Pardo and Laura Olson, formerly of the former Detention, are now formerly of Manhattan Drugs. The two restaurateurs have moved on, and are now putting the final touches on The Social and adjacent Evo Tapas Kitchen and Cabaret. Both places cut the red ribbon today.

Owners Brian Brooks and Jaime Mullins-Brooks are moving the cozy neighborhood haunt down the hill to the former Dad Watson’s location, nearly three times the size. The last day of service before the switchover is May 12. Hunger 2.0 will keep the same cuisine but has announced an impressive new recruit will execute it.

Sushi Mori
A tipster reports “For Lease” signs are hanging at the popular lunch spot in Belltown. After repeated phone calls without an answer, one could conclude Sushi Mori is no more.
