Puget Sound Business Journal gets the scoop on Matt Dillon's plan to help revitalize Pioneer Square with two new businesses on the same block; he's planning to open the Mediterranean-style Bar Sajor (pronounced sigh-YOR) in December at the southwest corner of Occidental, and come spring he plans to welcome London Plane with business partner and fellow Melrose Market merchant Katherine Anderson, owner of Marigold and Mint.
London Plane, which will move into a space formerly occupied by Bank of America, will be the bakery for Dillon's restaurants, as well as a retail space for baked good and a cafe that offers both sit-down and takeout meals.
PSBJ also reports that a third Melrose Market merchant, Russell Flint of Rain Shadow Meats, plans to open a butcher shop in February in the same area.
Mike Easton of Il Corvo will also be joining the Pioneer Square family in early 2013, taking over the old BuiltBurger space.
