Friday is your last chance to wait in line for a mound of glorious carbs at Il Corvo's petite pastaria on the Pike Place Market Hillclimb. Owner Mike Easton is moving from the cramped space he shares with Procopio Gelateria to new digs at the former (and larger) BuiltBurger location at 217 James St. in Pioneer Square. Il Corvo is slated to open its doors in early 2013.
In a part of town waiting to recover from the relocation of Elliott Bay Books to Capitol Hill in 2010, news of forthcoming Pioneer Square-based businesses with roots in the Hill's Melrose Market is more than welcome.
Dillon is set to open Bar Sajor in December on Occidental Ave. S. He's working with business partner Anderson to launch bakery London Plane on the northwest corner of the square. Retail, wine, and meeting space Indigene will sit on the southeast corner. In February, Flint is opening a butcher shop on Occidental's east side.
