- Filling a gap in the Seattle restaurant scene, a New York-style Jewish deli called Dingfelder’s Delicatessen will open in spring or summer at 1318 E. Pine on Capitol Hill. Husband-and-wife owners Vance Dingfelder and Stephanie Hemsworth, who also run Nourish Catering, promise an “Authentic Old World Delicatessen with plenty of Corned Beef and Pastrami, Knishes, Whitefish, Smoked Salmon, cookies and more.” Another Jewish deli, Schmaltzy’s, could land in Fremont by December 2018.
- Venerable 13 Coins, which is preparing to move from its original location on Boren Avenue to Pioneer Square, has extended its run just a few more days. The original was set to close on New Year’s Day, but now will continue its 24-hour service until the kitchen shuts down at 6 a.m. on January 7. The extension ensures fans won’t have to go too long without a fix from the vintage restaurant, which now plans to open in Pioneer Square in February.

The menu will include margaritas and handmade tortillas with toppings like chorizo potato and guajillo-spice beef.
- As of December 28, Schooner Exact Brewing has temporarily closed its taproom for two months for renovations. The reopening is set for March 1.
