Get ready for some joyful cussin’ on the Westside. Biscuit Bitch — the irreverent (and super tasty) fast casual Southern breakfast and brunch spot with three Seattle locations — is expanding to White Center. It will take over the space formerly occupied by well-regarded sandwich shop, Brass Knuckle Bistro, which closed down service on April 27. Owner Kimmie Spice confirmed the news to Eater Seattle, adding that she’s aiming to open the shop by the end of July. Fan favorites — such as the colorfully-named Hot Mess Bitch, a biscuit smothered in garlic grits, cheese, and house-made gravy — will be available. And though the three current outposts already have some vegetarian and gluten free options, the new location may also add some more vegetarian items that had dropped off the menu in the past, such as collard greens and black eyed pea hummus.
Spice says that the space is much bigger than her other locations in Belltown, Pioneer Square, and near Pike Place Market (which continue to draw crowds). This means there will be seating for 50 — double what’s available in those other spots — and more room on the grill to experiment. Since Brass Knuckle Bistro had popular vegan items, Spice is considering adding a vegan biscuit and gravy option to her menu as well — but only in the White Center location. This new expansion is Biscuit Bitch’s first since 2016 (West Seattle blog reported the coming opening first after spotting a sign on the location’s window).
This is also another signal that White Center is becoming a go-to neighborhood for dining. Historically a working-class area brimming with a diverse field of food options representing the likes of Korea, El Salvador, and Mexico, it has recently seen an influx of new residents, with many getting priced out of Seattle proper. That has led to more new businesses in recent months (along with some concerns about gentrification), as places such as Future Primitive Brewing and a brat-heavy food truck called Das Wagon have set up shop. Now, biscuits with some attitude should be a nice addition.
