Okinawa Teriyaki Takes Over John's Wok Downtown, Charlestown Street Café Closes in West Seattle, & More"/>
You may recall Mike Seely wrote a heartfelt eulogy after John's Wok at 1022 Alaskan Way closed. The closest convenience store to Seattle Weekly headquarters sold many staffers its overpriced bags of Doritos, hangover-curing breakfast sandwiches, and corn syrup-doused "Asian" food. This Monday, Okinawa Teriyaki moved in and filled the near seven month void. The super cheap teriyaki joint, once based a couple blocks away at 1022 Alaskan Way, relocated so they could offer more seating, as well as a bigger menu.
Okinawa Teriyaki is now bigger and better!
And lastly, in West Seattle, Charlestown Street Café at 3800 California Ave. S.W. closes this Sunday, April 3, after a 30-plus-year run. The beloved neighborhood eatery was best known for its award-winning New England-style clam chowder. On the upside: A new Irish pub is opening at 4752 California Ave. S.W. come May. A Terrible Beauty will feature 28 imported and local beers on tap and authentic Irish pub fare. If the bar name sounds familiar, it's because the first installment of A Terrible Beauty debuted in Renton a little less than two years ago.
