This Week in Restaurant News: A Nashville Fried Chicken Double-Down

Your Friday dispatch from Seattle Met’s food team.

Sisters and Brothers' hot chicken heads to Interbay.

A Sibling for Sisters and Brothers

Eater Seattle's news on one of the town's best chicken sandwich situations has some moving parts, but hang in there for the good news. Georgetown's Nashville-style hot chicken joint Sisters and Brothers will trade its current digs for a new partnership with nearby DJ-riffic bar Sneaky Tiki—and open a full-on second location in the old Chen's Village on Elliott Ave.

The New Nirmal's

Dare I say—more positive news?! The owners of Nirmal's in Pioneer Square will open Khushi, "our homage to street food from all corners of India," in downtown Bellevue. Sounds like they intend to open more of them in the future.

Forging Ahead

The Forge Lounge is one of those hidden downtown gems that serve so well when you need a low-key place for drinks in a part of town not prone to that vibe. So it's sad, if not surprising, this bar on the walkway to the ferry terminal will soon close, after a near-miraculous 8-year run in the thick of waterfront construction. Per Facebook, its last day of business is February 28.

On Broadway

Actual Mongolian food, not the Americanized grill kind? This does sound promising.

Meet Matters

Heong Soon Park sent along an update on his mega Korean barbecue restaurant on Capitol Hill: Opening day is February 11.

Meanwhile, on Seattle Met...

Lil Woody's burger month—the actual most wonderful time of the year?

Does this dog bakery count as food news?
