Fall’s in full swing, but it looks like there’s a new reason to head out to the beach. Harry’s Fine Foods — the chill bistro that has been slinging comfort food in Capitol Hill since 2016 — opened its West Seattle spinoff Harry’s Beach House today on Alki Avenue. The menu brings over some fan favorites from the original spot (including its popular Harry’s burger), with some rotating seasonal offerings using locally sourced ingredients. Brunch dishes include poached eggs on roasted delicata squash, borscht, and cornmeal pancakes, while dinner features lamb riblettes and Salish black cod with smoked sunchokes and huckleberry jus.
Owner Julian Hagood has brought in LA chef Wesley Barden — who once worked at Silver Lake brunch icon Barbrix and Venice’s Dudley Market — to run the kitchen. On the drinks side, there will be beer, natural wine selections, and a similar cocktail list to Harry’s Fine Foods, which currently includes a maple-flavored old fashioned.
As one might expect, Harry’s Beach House has a seafaring vibe, with nautical artwork adorning the walls and light wood furniture. But there’s a little more legroom than at Fine Foods, with 1,600 square feet of space. There’s also a bigger kitchen, which will allow Hagood, Barden, and their team to experiment more.
Current hours are 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday, with a happy hour from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.
