Barrio Owners Working on Two New Restaurants

One in Leschi and one in Wallingford.

Heavy Restaurant Group

Heavy Restaurant Group, the owners of Purple, Barrio, Lot No. 3, and The Commons, are planning two new restaurants in Seattle this year.

The first will be in Leschi, and it's called Meet the Moon. Announced last August, the neighborhood cafe concept could open by the end of January in the former Pert’s Deli space between Daniel's Broiler and Blu Water Bistro. The restaurant's name (and presumably its wavy logo) is taken from the Robert Frost poem "Going for Water," which has a line that reads "we ran as if to meet the moon." Eater will have more on the concept, hours, etc. soon.

The group is also working on an unnamed Wallingford restaurant inside the Stone34 project that houses the Brooks Running headquarters. The 5,500-square-foot restaurant will be open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as cocktails. Details are thin, but the group hopes to have this concept open in early summer.
