Welcome back to Eater News, a semi-regular round-up of mini news bites. Have info to share? Email intel to

  • Regulators are forcing “cannabis-infused gummies, tarts, and hard candies” off the shelves by April 3, 2019. The state liquor and cannabis board had previously approved these items, but now says they’re “especially appealing to children” and need to go.
  • Grand Central Bakery is putting the finishing touches on its new Wedgwood outpost. The local chainlet says it’s hoping for a mid-October opening, contingent on final inspections and permits from the city.
  • Fire and Vine Hospitality, the group behind El Gaucho, Miller’s Guild, and The Lakehouse, are partnering with Teatro Zinzanni. They’ll renovate and reopen the pub on the former Redhook Brewing property, which the wacky dinner theater company recently moved into. They’ll add a private dining and special events program, too.
  • Fire and Vine is also busy working on a new restaurant near Pike Place Market called Aerlume. Relying on Northwest-sourced produce, plus ingredients from its own custom farming operation, the restaurant will include elements like an indoor bonfire and private dining spaces. The opening is planned for late 2018.
  • Farmers market favorite Lowrider Baking Company found a permanent home to sell its cookies — with flavors like birthday cake and salted toffee pecan — in the Georgetown Trailer Park Mall. Owner Emily Allport hopes to open by the end of the month.
