Openings & Closings: Ballard Gains a British Pub, West Seattle Loses Bowling Alley Chinese Food, and Much More"/>
Good news, foodies! Seattle gained more restaurants than it lost this week. Here's your weekly report.
Craving chocolate cream pie with... pretzel crust? Capitol Hill's new online pie company is now taking orders.
In Ballard, a new British pub opened for business at NW Market Street and 24th Avenue NW. The Market Arms features European and domestic beers, traditional British fare, and five tellys for you to watch the World Cup. In less upbeat news, Ballard lost MiMi Gelato.
West Seattle will soon say goodbye to Terrace West Chinese Restaurant inside West Seattle Bowl. Its owners plan to remodel and create a new non-Chinese restaurant by September 1. (Rumor has it a second Zippy's is coming to the neighborhood. Maybe this is it!)Over on Capitol Hill, pop-up restaurant Dumpling Dojo has closed after a four-month run to make way for Bank of America. The neighborhood is however, the new headquarters for an online pie company. A la Mode Pies offers next day delivery on homemade pies made with local and organic ingredients. It began taking orders on Tuesday.
Quick notes on other openings: In Eastlake, Chef Taichi Kitamura is aiming to open his new restaurant Sushi Kappo Tamura by July 2. You'll recall the James Beard semifinalist previously operated Kappo in Fremont. The Central District should see Cheeky Cafe start serving homestyle Asian dishes in a couple weeks. And lastly, all of Seattle gets a sweet fix via Street Treats, a new mobile dessert truck that will be traveling to SODO, Harborview, South Lake Union, Belltown, and Rainier Valley.
Until next time, folks!
