- Downtown’s Café Hitchcock has revamped its menu, and its new “wellness lattes” feature health supplements ranging from grass-fed collagen to CBD oil, cannabis’ calming, non-psychoactive element. The drink- and vegetable-heavy changes are inspired by the cafe’s now-closed Bainbridge Island sibling, vegetarian juice bar Verjus.
- Pizzeria 88, which opened during the Capitol Hill pizza boom of early 2016, is currently closed and undergoing changes “to combat Seattle’s rising cost of doing business.” Yet the Neapolitan-style pizza will apparently remain under whatever new brand emerges.
- The Butcher and the Baker, suspected to be closed for good last month, is for sale for $65,000. Evidently the owners “had a thriving business but due to personal reasons had to close their doors.”
- Wallingford neighborhood favorite Pam’s Kitchen and its aromatic Trinidadian goat curry are the subjects of the latest episode of Cooking in America, Eater’s video series about the way immigrant food culture has shaped the flavor of the United States.
- Wild Ginger, the downtown Asian staple with an award-winning wine list, is opening a third sit-down location for Asian fusion food, this time as part of the 450-unit luxury tower McKenzie, opening in July at the corner of 8th Ave. and Blanchard St.
