Welcome back to Eater News, a semi-regular round-up of mini news bites. Have info to share? Email intel to

  • Josh Henderson, whose Huxley Wallace Collective restaurant group owns Quality Athletics in Pioneer Square, will reopen his rotisserie chicken restaurant, Poulet Galore. Henderson closed the restaurant in South Lake Union, but will reopen it in June in the former Volterra space in Ballard.
  • The shuttered Salted Sea space in Columbia City may soon house a restaurant called Limena from chef Tamara Murphy, who owns the farm-to-table restaurant Terra Plata on Capitol Hill. Pisco and Peruvian food will be the focus.
  • A wood-fired bistro called Samara is in the works on Sunset Hill, with an estimated opening in early February. The new restaurant at 6414 32nd Ave NW comes from chef Eric Anderson, who worked at Portland favorites Besaw’s Cafe and Higgins Restaurant.
  • Reuben’s Brews is opening a new brewery and taproom, about half a mile from its current space. The Brewtap will serve as another way for the popular brewery to serve its customers, as well as a streamlined production facility. It opens March 2.
  • Schooner Brewing, formerly Schooner Exact, closed its kitchen effective January 18. The taproom will still serve light snacks, like pretzels, but the full menu is kaput. The brewery has also merged with San Juan Seltzer Company, for whom Schooner had been producing hard seltzer via a licensing agreement.
