It's the moment fans of shuttered Dot's Charcuterie and Bistrot have been waiting for: the new version of the restaurant, Dot's Butcher and Deli, has announced an opening day of July 14.
The deli counter from Miles James will open inside Pike Place Market in the Corner Market space vacated by Sea Breeze Farm and, before that, BB Ranch. As Eater reported in May, don't expect the same experience as the Fremont restaurant. "There will be nothing off the menu from Dot's," James says. "We'll have a porchetta but it will be different from Dot's. I'm not opening the exact same Dot's as before, but the new space will carry the spirit of it."
James, who has been cooking at nearby Radiator Whiskey, says that any establishment he opened would be named Dot's, after his grandmother.
Of this new venture, expect an "old school butcher shop concept" with an array of charcuterie and cured meats, terrines, pates, fresh sausage, bacon, and various cuts of beef, chicken, and pork. Game meat will be available on special order, and James will source primarily from a few select Northwest producers.
James will also roll out sandwiches like porchetta, meatball, cheesesteak, and corned beef, available daily, plus a few rotating specials. Expect sides, too, like a salad with pasta from beloved Il Corvo.
94a Pike Street, (206) 682-2828, website. Open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
