The second South Lake Union-waterfront restaurant from Dan Bugge, owner of Matt’s in the Market and Radiator Whiskey, launches this week as White Swan Public House opens on Wednesday.
White Swan will sit next to Bugge’s new fish-and-chips walk-up window, 100-Pound Clam, at 1001 Fairview Avenue North. 100-Pound Clam opened in July.
Developed by chef Josh Nebe, the menu for White Swan feels similar to Radiator Whiskey's but with a heavier emphasis on seafood. Here’s a look at the opening day offerings, including steamed clams, local albacore tuna salad, and "Poutine O' The Sea," featuring littleneck clams, chowder, bacon, and scallions atop french fries:
You might remember an aforementioned dinghy delivery service for nearby boats, whereby customers could order food and growlers full of beer to be sent out by dinghy from either restaurant. That fun concept is apparently on hold until (hopefully) next summer. Boats can still park at the dock attached to the restaurant and dine in or order take-out, though.
1001 Fairview Avenue N, (206) 588-2680, website. Open Monday to Thursday 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays 4 p.m. to midnight.
