- The Seattle-themed complex at the Nagoya Airport in Japan—complete with Boeing’s first 787 Dreamliner—is open. The so-called “Flight of Dreams” wing at Centrair International Airport is outfitted with locally-based shops and restaurants including Starbucks, Pike Brewing, Fran’s Chocolates, Beecher’s Handmade Cheese, and Ethan Stowell Restaurants.
- A new food truck serving scoops of cookie dough is hitting the streets. Sugar and Spoon is making weekly appearances in Westlake Park and beyond, serving egg-free Oreo, chocolate chip, and oatmeal cookie dough in cups, cones, and with ice cream.
- Later this month, Walla Walla will be home to a two-for steak restaurant and brewery courtesy of Fire and Vine, the new partnership between chef Jason Wilson (Lakehouse, Miller’s Guild) and El Gaucho Hospitality. Walla Walla Steak Co. and Crossbuck Brewing open October 25 in the renovated Walla Walla train depot.
- Wide-ranging pop-up/incubator Addo changed the daytime coffee program at its Ballard location. The new menu, called Cafecito, is essentially a replacement for Royal Drummer, which previously ran the coffee shop aspect of the business. Drinks options range from espresso to cold brew to drip coffee.
