Stocked Market: Cone and Steiner
Dani Cone of Fuel and High 5 Pie is partnering up with restaurant-opening junkie Joshua Henderson and the owners of Retrofit Home to open a grocery at 526 19th Avenue East. You know, just your typical one-stop destination for hammers, housewares, milk, eggs, excellent takeaway dishes, growler fills, and milling your own flour. facebook.com/coneandsteiner


Ethan Stowell Goes to Mkt. in Tangletown
Don’t be fooled by the lack of vowels: It’s not an actual market, but that’s how you pronounce the name of Stowell’s next spot. The space at 2108 North 55th will be just 28 seats, Stowell’s smallest yet. Chef Joe Ritchie spent years cooking with Jerry Traunfeld at Poppy and Herbfarm; now he will dispense meats, fish, vegetables, and snacks with help from an applewood--fueled grill. ethanstowellrestaurants.com

 

Teddy’s Bigger Burgers Comes to Greenlake 
This crazy-beloved Hawaiian burger chain made an odd leap to Woodinville for its first mainland location in 2009. Now a franchise is opening in Greenlake, at 6900 East Green Lake Way North. The burgers will be just as massive, the toppings just as varied (grilled pineapple, peanut butter, blue cheese), the sauce just as super, and the space just as surfboard-bedecked as the Woodinville Teddy’s. A December or January opening should lay waste to all those New Year’s fitness resolutions. teddysbiggerburgers.com

 

Big Pork at Le Petit Cochon
After cooking alongside his brother, Dustin, at Art of the Table, Derek Ronspies has some big, porky plans for the former Showa address in Fremont. He’s going nose to tail, using seasonal produce and a globe’s worth of culinary influences. Not every dish includes pig, but the restaurant’s URL should give you an idea of what to expect. gettinpiggy.com
