Opening

Skillet Regrade
The diner's newest outpost opened in the Amazon Doppler building this week with all the menu items familiar to the Capitol Hill and Ballard locations. Plus, from 11am-6pm is "happy lunch" when lunch size portions of the fried chicken sammy, veg burger, and cobb salad will be served all under $10. 

Mamnoon Street 
Yet another new arrival in Amazon's Doppler building—Mamnoon's street-inspired spinoff just started cooking up lamb and chicken shawarmas, mezze plates of hummus and other dips, plus cocktails. 

Saint Helens 
Another week, another opening from Josh Henderson's Huxley Wallace Collective;  Laurelhurst bistro Saint Helens opens today. Stop in for a tartine breakfast, or lunch, dinner, cocktails, or weekend brunch.

Sansei
The sushi and seafood restaurant with three locations dotted around the Hawaiian islands has locked down an opening date of Sunday, February 21 for its first mainland outpost, at the new Premiere on Pine building on Ninth and Pine in Downtown. On the menu: the familiar Pacific Rim plates and "new wave" sushi similar to the Hawaiian locations. 

Sam's Tavern
This haven of sliders mounted on top of bloody marys joins the seven other restaurants popping up along Ninth Avenue in South Lake Union; opening day is February 20 reports Eater Seattle. Bottomless fries, burgers, and $1 beers follow from the menu off the original Capitol Hill location. 

In The Works

Foreign National 
Stateside chef Eric Johnson and front of house manager Seth Hammond have partnered for their next venture—a 25-seat bar with Asian influenced bar fare by the name of Foreign National. None of the food or beverages will replicated from the Stateside menu, even though the bar is positioned right next door. June or July is the tentative timeline for opening—just in time to cool down at the new watering hole. 

The Whiskey West
Owners of the Whiskey Bar downtown are planning to open their second location called The Whiskey West in West Seattle at 6451 California Southwest reports West Seattle Blog. The whiskey bar doesn't plan to open before June but will have at least 20 beers on tap, whiskey, craft cocktails, and a similar menu and space to the downtown location. 

Closing

Genki Sushi
The conveyor belt sushi in the Broadway building will roll out the last of the California rolls February 26 after five years in business, says Capitol Hill Seattle blog. The corporate chain hasn't listed a reason for closing.
