People are weirdly passionate about the breakfast potatoes at Grub. I learned this when my colleague Kathryn Robinson and I were researching the February brunch feature. So off I went to this restaurant on the top of Queen Anne—a neighborhood joint, except on Saturday and Sunday mornings. During brunch, people descend upon Grub from all around town.
Plates like a massive biscuit benedict and a breakfast po'boy worthy of a fork and steak knife earned Grub a spot in our brunch issue, which is currently on newsstands. And indeed, those potatoes lived up to the hype: smashed, fried until the skin crackles, and exactly as much garlic as you can handle on a Sunday morning.
This weekend will be Grub's last brush with potato greatness. Owner Sharon Fillingim announced on Facebook that the restaurant will close Sunday, February 15, after brunch service. She's handing the space over to another Queen Anne resident who will turn it into a cafe called Bounty Kitchen.
