Sweet news, Seattle: several of our favorite new eateries have just expanded their hours—and two, their offerings.
The gorgeous Chop Shop by Ericka Burke (Volunteer Park Cafe, Canal Market) debuted five weeks ago with dinner service, added its much anticipated fresh-pressed juice bar two weeks back, and is now completing the package with breakfast and lunch.
On weekdays, come for the $12 European-style breakfast buffet (preserves and toast, granola and yogurt, fruit, a juice du jour, and Stumptown coffee) from 8 to 11 a.m., or enjoy standard breakfast offerings (breakfast sandwiches, Marscapone-stuffed French toast, and more) from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. Lunch fare (Chop salad, sandwiches, and a handful of larger plates) is available from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m.
On weekends, the standard breakfast menu will be available from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. (no buffet) and the lunch menu will be on from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Finally, the restaurant is also initiating a new "Best Hour" daily from 3 to 5:30 p.m. with select $8 sandwiches and salads, as well as three $6 cocktails.
Also in Capitol Hill, Monica Dimas' delicious Neon Taco has also just launched brunch from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Expect baked eggs, tortas Benedict, tacos, dips, posole, menudo, and more. Find more details on Neon's Facebook.
Finally, head to Fremont and the lovely, seafood-strong Manolin, just recognized nationally on Bon Appetit's top 10 new restaurants of 2015, is newly offering Sunday hours from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. This December-launched restaurant run by several Renee Erickson alums is also open from 4 to 10 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday (happy four 4 to 6 p.m.)
