Queen Anne-based Bounty Kitchen, a farm-to-table brunch favorite for its healthy take on comfort food, just expanded to Denny Triangle, imbuing a new glass, concrete, and steel space with some of the same charm as its turn-of-the-century original home. The restaurant opened its second location over the weekend, bringing its breakfast sandwiches, scrambles, and juices to the business crowd in booming Amazonia.
Though the modern bones and the view are noticeably different at her new place — the Denny Triangle location has views of the Amazon Spheres and the Space Needle — owner Meg Trainer brought in warm touches like potted plants and communal tables that reflect some of the personality of her first restaurant.
Graham Baba Architects, responsible for such showstoppers as Renee Erickson’s dramatic Deep Dive bar in the Amazon Spheres down the street, designed the space. Striking light fixtures accent the airy, light-filled space, which is divided into two seating areas: one with communal tables and the other a large section of bar seating. There’s also a patio for warmer-weather dining.
Diners order at a counter from a menu similar to that of the original location: a healthier take on comfort food like Southern “not-fried” chicken, pancakes, grain bowls, breakfast sandwiches, vegetable scrambles, and salads. A handful of excellent juices, like the brilliantly hued Beet Down (beet, apple, and ginger) and Turmeric Tastic (turmeric, orange, and carrot), share the drinks section with coffee and tea. Much of the menu is organic and sourced locally, so seasonal changes are routine.
Apart from the location and decor, the other significant departure from the Queen Anne location is the Denny Triangle restaurant’s bar, a focal point meant to attract an after-work crowd. Trainer says this isn’t intended to be a late-night hot spot, though; she closes things down at 9 p.m. daily at both locations.
