The Innkeeper quietly opened in Belltown on November 21st, says Glenn Drosendahl of Puget Sound Business Journal. Chef Brian Durbin and managing partner Chris Linker founded Black Bottle six years ago, the highly successful gastropub that is still running strong. And now, just a few storefronts away, they have opened The Innkeeper, taking over the space formerly occupied by the now shuttered, much beloved Marco's Supper Club. GlennDro says that unlike the Mediterranean-inspired tapas dishes at Black Bottle, the small plates menu at The Innkeeper will feature Central and South American dishes.
Seattle Magazine's Allison Scheff queried designer Judy Boardman, who tells her, that the Black Bottle team "...built the Innkeeper to be a casual, neighborhood hang-out. We have two TVs, a very relaxed atmosphere and our idea of comfort food. We wanted everything to be unjarring and conducive to decompression."
