  • Starting July 1, Seattle will enact a ban on all petroleum-based plastic straws, utensils, and cocktail picks in food and drink establishments. Seattle is the first U.S. city to adopt such a ban.
  • Sushi legend Shiro Kashiba has extended the hours of his namesake restaurant, Sushi Kashiba, near Pike Place Market. The restaurant now serves lunch daily in the courtyard, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., but only for the summer months.
  • A new wine bar called Footprint Wine is in the works on Capitol Hill. The bar’s environmentally friendly ethos will bring mostly local wines from sustainability-minded makers, in the former home of The Growl Store.
  • Monica Dimas’s new taco bar, Little Neon Taco, has added dinner seven nights a week. The tacos, grilled street corn, tortas, and more, are also served at lunch on weekdays and brunch on Sundays.

Tacos for lunch... and dinner? We think it's ok (now open for dinner 7 days a week & Sunday brunch!) #seeyousoon
