When an SUV crashed into a gas station at the north end of Broadway two weeks ago, the question foremost in some minds was: "Will this delay the opening of Poppy?" Fear not: The new restaurant from Jerry Traunfeld—formerly of the world-famous Herbfarm, which is now officially passé—has opened next door, serving Indian-influenced dishes for around $30 per person. Among all the recent hotly anticipated restaurant openings (Spring Hill, the Corson Building, Spinasse), this may be the hottest. (The woman whose pants caught fire in the conflagration—pain at the pump, indeed—is recovering.) (Poppy, 622 Broadway E, 324-1108, www.poppyseattle.com. 5:30–10 pm.)
