Katsu Burger
Bring on the nori fries. Georgetown's favorite purveyor of towering, tonkatsu-pattied burgers is open for business on 12th Avenue, says Capitol Hill Seattle blog.

Yesss. Bruce Naftaly is officially making soup in Chophouse Row. Marmite is still finessing its table service, but the best seat in the house is up at the counter with Naftaly, anyway.

Bar Charlie
Per Eater Seattle, Stone Way's new seaplane-themed bar is open for business, complete with actual plane propeller and gauge decor and cocktails with aeronautical names.

Eater Seattle says the ice cream sandwich–building food truck will open a shop in the Central District this spring. Look for Street Treats' custom ice cream sandwiches, plus scoops, at 24th and Union (the same building that houses Scott Staples's Feed Co. Burgers) around April or May.


The Pink Door
The Pike Place Market stalwart is closed for three months to remodel.
