The Week in Restaurant News: Lunch Times

Capitol Hill's Homegrown is back, downtown gets a food hall, and Wild Ginger has a new lunch window—but man, we're gonna miss those breakfast potatoes at Grub.

Wild Ginger Tiffin

The Triple Door's former box office window has been transformed into a grab-and-go lunch window, which will serve build-your-own lunch bowls between $6–$8. According to a press release, they'll be open weekdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The Market Hall
An LA-based restaurateur has bestowed upon Seattle's downtown a large "upscale food emporium"—translation part market, part restaurant. Eater Seattle says it opened this week.


This Queen Anne neighborhood spot, beloved for its cultish breakfast potatoes and giant eggs Benedict, will serve its last brunch on Sunday, according to a Facebook post made by owner Sharon Fillingam on Monday. Neighbor Meg Trainer will be turning the space into an organic café called Bounty Kitchen.


Homegrown Melrose Market
After shuttering in January for renovations, the Pike/Pine location of this local sandwich is scheduled to reopen Tuesday with an expanded kitchen and a new line of salads and juices.


Biscuit Bitch
According to Eater Seattle, Seattle’s most profane biscuit shop will be expanding to a second Belltown location at an unknown date. The new location will have the same menu as the original, but with more seating and a larger space.  

Ballard Bites and Brew
What has long been an empty lot in Ballard will soon become a park-like space that's essentially a beer garden mated with a food truck pod. Look for four rotating trucks, eight taps, lots of cans, and an opening date of April-ish.


This local bike and water bottle company, which donates free bicycles and clean water to those in need with every purchase, launched a Fremont pop-up café this week, reported Eater. The café is operating out of the Stone 34 building, which will soon house the company's flagship brick-and-mortar shop. They'll be selling espresso Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to noon through the end of the month.


New Chef at the Canterbury Ale House
The team behind Capitol Hill's Canterbury Ale House have hired chef and erstwhile traveler Brendan O'Farrell to head up their kitchen. O'Farrell will be updating the menu with pub classics like beer battered fish and chips and French dip sandwiches.
