    Here's a short and sweet report on this week's restaurant news.

    In Ballard, Chef Renee Erickson of Boat Street Café opened a new oyster bar in the Kolstrand Building at 4743 Ballard Avenue Northwest. The Walrus and the Carpenter serves house-smoked fish, oysters, mussels, and more. Also in the Kolstrand Building: Ethan Stowell has announced he plans to open his fifth restaurant, Staple & Fancy Mercantile, this Sunday.

    Greenlake residents scored a new Mexican restaurant and bar (pictured on the right) called Casa Patron at 705 Northeast 65th Street. Also coming to the neighborhood: Jodee's Fresh and Organic Desserts at 7214 Woodlawn Avenue Northeast, a bakery specializing in desserts free of dairy, gluten, and wheat.

    In Greenwood, a new owner has purchased the former Olive You at 8516 Greenwood Avenue North, changed its name to The Olive and Grape, and given it a Mediterranean makeover. It anticipates opening at month's end, but you can check out an open house with hors d'oeuvres, olive oil tastings, and live music from 6 to 9 p.m. this Friday, August 13.

    Lastly, a new night club and restaurant opens tomorrow at 2901 1st Avenue South. Club Sur will serve Argentine and South American cuisine.

    Until next week, folks!
