Creativity coming from Bar Noroeste. Image via their website. 

OPENING 

Bar Noroeste 
The taqueria and bar—the latest in Josh Henderson's February juggernaut—opened Monday, reports Eater Seattle, serving Northwest-toned tacos, sandwiches, taquitos and tequila shots. The room has a sexier tone than neighboring Great State Burger and the occasional DJ spinning old soul and deep bass. Find it at 2051 Seventh Avenue. 

No Bones Beach Club 
No Bones About It food truck now has a tiki bar in Ballard, in the former address of Bloom Ballard and Le Marche, My Ballard reports. The vegan food truck will still pump out vegan dishes like eggplant fries and cauliflower wings from the new kitchen to accompany the cocktails made with local spirits. 

Marée Bistro and Bar 
Cassis's replacement on Alki in now open just in time for Valentine's Day offering a four-course meal of broiled oysters, shaved fennel and beets, ribeyes, and white chocolate dipped chocolate gateau. 

Revolution Wine 
The new wine shop on East Pike opened late January, according to Eater Seattle, with focused bottle prices falling between $20–$30. Tastings happen Thursdays and Saturdays or open a bottle from the lounge to pair with cheese, charcuterie, and seafood all while sipping in-store. 

REVAMPS 

Chippy's to Marine Hardware 
Ethan Stowell's fish and chip bar switches gears to become an entirely new restaurant after Valentine's Day. Once open, Marine Hardware will serve tasting menus, a four-course for $50 or six-course for $80, Wednesday through Saturday, 5-10pm. Plus, Stowell will be cooking in the kitchen on occasion, perhaps on a weekly basis.

Restaurant Zoë will become event space 
Valentine's Day will also be the last day of the Capitol Hill's Restaurant Zoë. These days the restaurant receives so many buyouts and private events it's enough to fuel the shift. In the future look for cooking classes and potential summertime brunch popups. 

CLOSED

Canal Market
Eater Seattle reports Montlake's boutique market brought to us by Ericka Burke (Volunteer Park Cafe, Chop Shop) has closed only after being open for nine months.  

IN THE WORKS 

H Mart
The former Nordstrom Rack space on Second Avenue will be the new home of the New Jersey-based Asian grocer. Eater Seattle reports construction permits have been accepted so the buildout is in the works to soon fill shelves with affordable snacks, produce, and meat.
