Barring any setbacks while putting the finishing touches of Feed Co. Burgers, Scott Staples' new burger joint in the Central District should open October 29.
Staples, whose restaurant group also owns Quinn's, Restaurant Zoe, and Uneeda Burger, opened the original Feed Co. Burgers in Redmond last July. Almost exactly a year later, he announced that the second outpost would be coming to 24th and Union, in the Central District's new Stencil building. Don't expect one-of-a-kind Uneeda Burger to get the same growth treatment, though; it's "in a unique building with interesting building conditions that you can't replicate anywhere else," Staples told Eater.
Food Co. number two will sport a four-season heated patio and its menu will look familiar to anyone who's patronized the first location, which slings quick-service burgers ranging from $5 (the quarter-pound beef classic) to bigger, messier six-ounce burgers for $14.
At the new location, the lamb, bison, and pork options that are fixtures in Redmond will instead be specials. Other rotating rarities will include a braised short rib sandwich or a house-made corned beef or pastrami option, Staples says. Fries, shakes, and beer round out the offerings.
Staples also said that he's rented out part of the parking lot across the street from the restaurant and will be able to offer short-term parking options, as the parking situation in the area has gotten increasingly competitive thanks to new development.
