Safeway Gas Station May Replace Silver Fork's Soul Food

24-year community institution The Silver Fork Restaurant may have to close to make way for a Safeway gast station, according to this King 5 segment. As The Stranger first reported, owner Larkin Potts heard about the plan, not from his landlord but from a customer inquiring about the "Notice of Proposed Land Use Actions" that had appeared on site. The family-run community diner is popular with people of different races and ethnicities. If you're interested in saving the Silver Fork, send an email to Sara Osborne, a Safeway rep. You should also leave feedback for Seattle's Department of Planning and Development by August 22 (the current deadline for public comments).
