  • Capitol Hill will soon be home to a new location for national ax-throwing bar chain Blade and Timber, the first of its kind in Seattle although the Canadian pastime is trending nationally. Blade and Timber is planning a late October or early November opening at 206 Broadway E.
  • Late last month, Capitol Hill’s By the Pound delicatessen announced a temporary closure for “construction upgrades.” The business, which opened in the fall, is owned by F2T Hospitality, the force behind West Seattle’s cocktail bar Alchemy and its restaurant sibling, Vine and Spoon.

We'll be temporarily closed while we make some construction upgrades! Hang in there, we'll keep you updated!

  • Food magazine Cherry Bombe calls Seattle’s Frankie and Jo’s owners Kari Brunson and Autumn Martin the “Vegan Ice Cream World’s Most Influential Duo.”
  • Frelard’s wildly creative tasting menu restaurant, Tarsan i Jane, recently nabbed a rare four-star review from Seattle Times critic Providence Cicero. She called the restaurant “world-class” and “boundary-pushing.”
  • Reacting to the ongoing crisis of the area’s starving Southern-resident killer whales, whose diets rely almost entirely on chinook salmon, Renee Erickson (the Whale Wins) vowed to no longer serve the fish in her restaurants. Instead, she’ll rely on “so many other good choices” for seafood, including sockeye and coho salmon.
