Bacon cheeseburger a la Henry's Tavern.


Henry's Tavern
Bellevue's Lincoln Square keeps on expanding much like the universe—the universe of burgers and beer. The upscale bar dressed up as a tavern officially opens on August 30 with 100 beers on tap (gird your livers!) and a custom frost drink rail to keep pints cold (so actually, nurse that lager!). 

Coming Soon

Ready your flipper fingers, Belltown arcade-bar-meets-artist-lair officially opens on September 14 at 6, with regular hours thereafter from noon to 2am.

Seattle Coffee Works
The local company’s fourth location, Cascade Coffee Works, is slated to open by November 1 in South Lake Union, just a few months after that of its sister cafe, Capitol Coffee Works.

Restaurant Returns

Metropolitan Grill
After a summer of remodeling, or rather, a steakcation (sorry), the prime choice Downtown steak house is officially back as of August 14.

Caffeinated Sadness

Sprudge reported on the Portland-based cafe's East Pine Street location; it shuttered on August 20. The lease was up and now the company will focus on the 12th Avenue shop.

Underground Libations

The Sovereign
From the owners of the Forge Lounge, this subterranean watering hole—with a touch of glitz—opened last September in the historic Maynard building on the corner of First and Washington. Don't miss this charmingly cool spot with playful cocktail options.

Burger Recaps

Whoa, y'all. Seattle's experiencing a bit of a burger boom. Let's take stock.

Next Level Burger
Vegans rejoice! Portland's plant-based joint opens today, August 25, in Whole Foods Market in Roosevelt.

The wholesale retailer has been testing out a new, mysterious burger. Can it stand up to the $1.50 hotdog food court king? We investigate.

Shake Shack
Have you heard the good word? The burger chain with a massive following is coming to Seattle in 2018.

Mark Fuller, a burger aficionado in the utmost, is teaming up with Doug Kawasaki on a new veggie burger spot in the Denny Regrade.
