Ballard "farm-to-neighborhood" spot Brunswick & Hunt will welcome its first dinner guests on May 22. One of Eater National's 44 Most Anticipated Openings of Spring 2014, the upcoming nose-to-tail restaurant joins Delancey, Honore, Essex, and Fat Hen on a burgeoning block of NW 70th St. "The neighborhood response has been amazing," co-owner Scott Rogel says. "People stop by all the time, introduce themselves, and tell us how much they are looking forward to having us join the food scene..."
Brunswick & Hunt was named after the gigantic painting called "The Hunt" that now hangs in the dining room and the space's fully restored "saloon-style" antique bar manufactured by Brunswick.
Chef Jeffrey Davidson has spent time in the kitchens of Vios, Ray's, and Bastille; his meaty menu features pork sourced from Tails & Trotters in Oregon and a burger blending elk and Wagyu beef. Plus, charcuterie and plenty of vegetables, including asparagus salad, grilled artichokes with roasted garlic, spicy rapini, and roasted carrots.
Doors swing open at 4 p.m. on May 22; Rogel says reservations will eventually be offered, but it's first come, first served on opening day.
