Kevin and Terresa Davis, whose portfolio of restaurants includes Steelhead Diner, Blueacre Seafood, and Orfeo, open a downtown steakhouse called Zane and Wylie’s today, named after their twin boys. The Davises describe their new addition as a “modern, approachable West Coast steakhouse.” That concept makes it a significant departure from its predecessor at 624 Olive Way, the ultra-fancy Circadia, which closed in May after only six months in business.
Zane and Wylie’s opening menu, shared in full below, is built on a foundation of Northwest meats and seafoods, and does indeed look approachable, ranging from starters like oysters on the half shell and beef carpaccio to a grass-fed burger, Neah Bay halibut, and a selection of steaks and chops. The wines, beers, and ciders are exclusively sourced from the Pacific Northwest, including a chardonnay from Januik, Bodhizhafa IPA from Georgetown Brewing, and Tieton’s cherry cider. There are also a handful of straightforward three- or four-ingredient cocktails, mostly plays on classics showcasing local spirits, like the Fremont Mule with Fremont Mischief vodka.
Like the Davises’ quintessential Pike Place Market diner, Steelhead, Zane and Wylie’s could be a draw for visitors who want some local flavors within a familiar framework and within walking distance of downtown hotels. Zane and Wylie’s is open daily 4 to 10 p.m., with happy hour in the Mustang Lounge daily 4 to 7 p.m.
