Capitol Hill’s Poquitos Mexican restaurant and Redmond’s Prime Steakhouse will both open second locations in Bothell this fall at a new development called The Junction (18505 Bothell Way NE). The six-story building includes 130 new apartments plus commercial and office space.

Poquitos is owned by restaurateurs James Weimann and Deming Maclise, whose names may sound familiar; Eater announced last week that the duo behind Bastille, Stoneburner, and Rhein Haus is opening a large beer hall called Beer Star in White Center any day now.

The new Poquitos will largely resemble the original, with a menu of handmade tortillas, guacamole made to order, Oaxacan mole negro, and Mexico City-inspired tacos al pastor and coastal ceviche. The restaurant also serves chapulines, or toasted Oaxacan grasshoppers, which have been a surprise hit since the company took over the Edgar’s concession stands at SafeCo Field this year. ESPN reported last month that after just a few Seattle Mariners home games, the stadium had sold 18,000 grasshoppers, more than Poquitos sells in a year, leading to a limit on the number of orders available per game.

Prime Steakhouse version two will also replicate its first restaurant, with classic steakhouse dishes plus a range of poultry, seafood, and vegetarian dishes, as well as beer, wine, and cocktail selections. There are also promises of a patio and a twice-daily happy hour.
