Updated: 99 Park Owner Planning New Restaurant for Regrade

2120 aims to open early next year

Update, 12/19/16: 2120 has tweaked its Facebook page to drop the term "gastropub"; the restaurant's description now promises "A farm to table restaurant."

Original story, 12/15/16: The Regrade/South Lake Union area will soon be home to a 99 Park sibling restaurant called 2120. It’s also owned by 99 Park co-owner Milan Uzelac and 99 Park chef Derek Bugge will oversee the menu. The new restaurant’s name reflects its address, just as 99 Park’s does; it will be located at 2120 6th Ave.

Eater doesn’t know much about the restaurant at this early stage, other than that it’s self-described as "A upper scale farm to table gastropub," with "locally-sourced new Northwest cuisine." In that vein, one would expect 2120 to be similar to 99 Park, where Bugge has been on board since March.

Bugge, former chef de cuisine at Frank's Oyster House and Pair, revamped 99 Park's menus, dropping former chef Quinton Stewart's Southeast Asian influences in favor of "an American contemporary style utilizing local and sustainable" Pacific Northwest ingredients. That meant dishes like venison tartare, grilled octopus with honey-carrot puree, Jones Family Farms lamb roulade, and fried chicken and waffles at brunch.

2120 is vying for an early 2017 opening.
