Belltown’s Spanish restaurant Pintxo will gain serious elbow room when it completes its move to a much larger space at 2219 4th Ave later this month; the reopening is scheduled for June 26. Pintxo will be in “soft open” mode on the 25th, with a limited menu available starting at 10 a.m. — just in time for the Seattle Pride Parade.

Our new dining room will have 40 seats, all of which face our 4th Ave windows, all of which open like doors ☀️. That...

The tapas-style menu and open-kitchen layout will remain, but there will be considerably more space in the dining room. Pintxo is also adding a charcuterie station with cured meats hand-sliced by the kitchen team. The larger kitchen will even allow Pintxo to offer baked goods like cocas — a Spanish flatbread — churros, and more. In July, the team anticipates adding lunch.

As Eater reported previously, owners Cory and Amanda Chigbrow also have two new establishments in the works. The first is Bar Abajo at 2207 2nd Ave, taking over the current Pintxo space and opening in early July. The bar-restaurant will focus on “gins and tins,” with a long list of local and international gin options plus beer, red sangria, and frozen cocktails. Soaking up the booze will be tinned fish, almonds, olives, cheese, and charcuterie. “Abajo” is Spanish for “below,” referencing the venue’s position underneath another bar owned by the Chigbrows, The Upstairs.

And finally, another bar called Commonwealth anticipates a fall opening at 2219 4th Ave. Diners will enter through a back alley off Bell Street and select from a menu of craft cocktails with Southern influences reflective of co-owner Amanda’s Kentucky roots. There are promises of an outdoor space with a fire pit in the slightly clandestine space.
