A Great Slice of Burien Pizza Is Headed Seattle’s Way

Plus, a bunch more restaurant openings

Are there actually too many good pizza places in Seattle? With Stevie’s Famous coming to the Clock-Out Lounge in Beacon Hill, the city is surely getting closer to the maximum saturation point.

Stevie’s Famous has been drawing raves since the team behind Lupo opened it in Burien in 2022 — unlike Lupo’s Neapolitan pies, Stevie’s are New York–style, foldable and available by the slice. And what a slice! The Seattle Times described its Normie MacDonald pizza — with coppa, burrata, and hot honey — as “a cornucopia of textures, temperatures and flavors, from savory to sweet, all in one revelatory bite.”

The Clock-Out Lounge is a worthy home for Stevie’s. For a while, the bar-slash-venue was hosting Breezy Town Pizza, an offshoot of Chicago-style Windy City Pie. But in June, Breezy Town shut down and was subsequently replaced by Shady Lane, which served soft pretzels and pizza. Shady Lane has ended its run recently, though we’re not sure why — we reached out to the owners and to Clock-Out Lounge to find out what happened there, and will update this story if we hear back.

Expect a bit of a line as these hyped pies land in Beacon Hill. The hours of the new Stevie’s Famous are 4 to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 4 to 10 p.m. the rest of the week. According to the Times, the goal is to add lunch and delivery service at some point.

Bagels Bloom in Ballard

In more delicious dough dispatches (that’s it for the alliteration, we promise), Old Salt’s bagels have arrived in Ballard, on 24th Avenue near 63rd Street to be precise. Old Salt was born out of a pandemic-era pivot — Liz Kenyon’s Fremont seafood restaurant Manolin started making bagels in 2020 and they are now some of the best in town, blistered and crispy on the outside and toothsomely chewy on the inside. Unsurprisingly, the smoked salmon and other fish offerings are also terrific.

Three Sacks Full opens in Roosevelt

Matthew Curtis and Michael Tsai’s pop-up Three Sacks Full has settled down in Roosevelt. The brick-and-mortar continues the duo’s focus on local and seasonal produce — there’s a lot of vegetables on the menu and not much meat. “Don’t expect fancy presentation and high prices,” says a press release. “We’re a small, cozy and casual place that encourages the sharing of dishes and the drinking of well priced wine.” Three Sacks Full is open Thursdays through Sundays, 5 to 9 p.m., and is walk-ins only after 7.

Old Stove Brewing and Tacos and Beer make things permanent

The food truck from Crown Hill’s Tacos and Beer has been popping up at Old Stove’s Ship Canal taproom for a little while and now the two businesses are taking things to the next level with a partnership that will see the truck parked there seven days a week. “Since we began hosting Tacos and Beer at Ship Canal, customer feedback has always been overwhelmingly positive and we couldn’t agree more,” said Old Stove general manager Nate Brown in an email. “From the quality of food to the huge menu variety that they offer, its clear to see how they very quickly became one of the most popular food trucks in Seattle.”
