In addition to a bevy of Mother's Day specials, this weekend brings some exciting takeout and delivery options for everyone, moms and non-moms alike. Read on for details on the return of places like Spinasse and Frankie & Jo's on Capitol Hill, a Hot Cakes cinnamon roll pop-up in Ballard, a burger pop-up at Hitchcock Deli, and more.
REOPEN FOR TAKEOUT
Bryn Lumsden's nostalgia-inducing Interbay diner (which, in the words of Julianne Bell, "evokes a cool teen TV hangout by way of a 1980s new-wave music video") will be open for curbside pickup starting this Sunday. They're all stocked up on wine, salads, take-and-bake items, spring floral bouquets, and cute merch.
Pioneer Square's gourmet deli sandwich place is offering pickup and delivery. To keep from running out of bread by noon (which has already happened—people missed them!), they're bumping up their supply with some Grand Central Baking Co. loaves.
The popular Capitol Hill Mexican restaurant is back with to-go margarita, preparado, michelada, and bloody Mary kits. They also have their full menu available for takeout from 11 am-3 pm daily.
Frankie & Jo's
Good news for dairy-free folks: The plant-based ice cream shop's Capitol Hill location will reopen for preorder pint pickups three times a week, starting next Wednesday.
Heavy Restaurant Group (Meet the Moon, the Commons, Purple Cafe and Wine Bar, Pablo y Pablo, and Barrio)
Six Heavy restaurants have reopened for takeout six days a week. In addition to normal menu options, they also have wine and cocktail kits to take home. Plus, get 10% off pickup orders.
After a seven-week hiatus, the KEXP-adjacent coffee shop is open for takeout from 10 am-4 pm daily.
The locally inspired Vietnamese restaurant reopened for takeout and delivery on May 4. Their refreshed menu has options like crispy imperial rolls, BBQ Carlton Farm spare ribs, an Idaho catfish claypot, vermicelli, and more.
Melissa Miranda's much-loved Filipinx spot has launched a new no-contact takeout menu called Lutong Bahay (which translates to "home-cooked" in Tagalog). Offerings are available from 4-8 pm, Wednesday-Saturday. They also have Sunday Baon, preordered meal kits with seasonal provisions and cooking instructions.
Spinasse & Artusi
As of May 7, the Northern Italian restaurant and its next-door aperitivo bar are open for takeout. Choose from appetizers like braised baby artichokes and prosciutto with marinated apples and toasted mustard seeds; pasta dishes like risotto with English peas and prosciutto cotto and cavatelli with mixed mushroom ragu; mains like braised pork belly with prosciutto herb filling; seasonal vegetables; and desserts like tiramisu and vanilla panna cotta with rhubarb. They also have beer, canned spritzes, and rosé to go.
Since Girl Scouts everywhere had to cut their cookie season short in light of COVID-19, the regional drugstore chain is now the exclusive purveyor of Thin Mints, Samoas, Lemon-Ups, and your other favorite cookies from the Girl Scouts of Western Washington. As of April 29, all 67 locations sell eight varieties.
The Brewmaster's Taproom
Every Monday from 5:30-7 pm through May 11, this drive-through grocery store provides bread, deli, pastries, fruits, and vegetables for free for those in need. Donations can be made here.
Chef Brendan McGill launched Sacka-Burgers on May 6 at Bainbridge Island's Hitchcock Deli. The pop-up is the restaurant's take on a classic burger joint—but with really good meat (Pure Country Beef from the Preservation Meat Collective) instead of mystery stuff. They also have a vegan patty.
Hot Cakes Molten Chocolate Cakery
On May 10, Ballardites (or people with cars) can sink their teeth into Yukon potato dough cinnamon rolls (they're dairy-free) and sip Blue Star espresso at Hot Cakes' walk-up window. They'll also have a limited amount of take-and-bake molten cakes and other confections, which you can always preorder through their Birthdays Don't Stop program.
In addition to their regular takeout program (Wednesday-Sunday from 4-8 p.m.) and their Sunday Night Fried Chicken family-style meals, Le Coin has a new Family Brunch service from 10 am-1 pm. Offerings are pretty classic, ranging from bread pudding French toast to chicken and waffles to the restaurant's famous apple fritters with cinnamon sugar and pear butter. This week, they're partnering with Lantern Brewing to offer a Burgers and Beer Take Out Pack for $45.
Métier Brewing Company
This Saturday from 2-5 pm, the community-focused, family-friendly brewery will sell beer to go, as well as beer-battered fish and chips and other offerings from the Tandem Catering & Events Food Truck.
You can now find your favorite Molly Moon's flavors (including yeti, cookie dough, salted caramel, and melted chocolate) at your neighborhood PCC Market. They even have the ice cream shop's beloved dark hot fudge and organic sprinkles.
Missing bar food? This Friday from 4-9 pm, order Tío Babie's meal packages for one ($20) or two ($30). They come with sandwiches, shwarma chicken nuggets, marinated olives, and spiced bar nuts.
Sugar + Spoon
Starting this Friday and returning every week from 1-8 pm through the end of August, the safe-to-eat cookie dough purveyors at Sugar + Spoon will pop up at Edmonds' Hamburger Harry's. Their full menu is available, as well as preordered pints.
Bainbridge Island Farmers Market
This market will return just in time for Mother's Day weekend this Saturday from 10 am-1 pm. Leave your dogs and personal shopping bags at home, wear a mask, and practice social distancing if you go.
Lake Forest Park Farmers Market
This Sunday from 10 am-3 pm, Lake Forest Park will welcome the return of its farmers market. You're encouraged to plan ahead and preorder where possible, as well as to take a voluntary "oath" detailing sanitation and social distancing procedures they expect shoppers to take, including designating one shopper per household and leaving pets at home.
Baseball season is on hiatus this year, but Chef Eric Rivera will fry up peanuts and Cracker Jacks for a 7:05 viewing of the Double (aka the famous double hit by the Seattle Mariners' Edgar Martínez in the 1995 American League Division Series) on May 11. The "virtual ballpark experience" also comes with a Seattle Dog kit, a garlic fries kit, red rope, and a six-pack of Olympia beer. Plus, on Friday, May 15, Addo will launch its five-course Fusion Series of $45 Puerto Rican and Italian meals for pickup.
Seattle Made Virtual Dinner Party
Seattle Made, a collaboration of over 100 local producers and manufacturers, is taking the most stressful part out of your social distancing-friendly dinner party (grocery shopping) by delivering four-person kits with Seattle-sourced ingredients (plus playlists and other surprises) on Saturday, May 16. If your household is less than four and the rest of your party is joining you virtually, that just means you'll have plenty of leftovers. The kit includes fixings for appetizers (like spicy pickled green beans from Seattle Pickle Co. and Beecher's cheese), entrees (gnocchi with Ruby Red Kraut and goat cheese from Gnocchi Bar and Firefly Kitchens), microgreens from Tight 5 Farms, dessert (molten cakes from Hot Cakes), flowers (from Lia's Garden in Snohomish), and beverages (you can choose between a Seattle Made red wine blend or non-alcoholic ginger beer from Timber City).
Pour one out for Mike Easton's and Victoria Diaz Easton's Pioneer Square Italian joint, famous for its ever-changing fresh pasta dishes and infamous for its limited weekday hours. The restaurant has closed permanently after nine years. However, you can still look forward to the eventual return of its West Seattle sister spot, Il Nido, which also offers takeout from Tuesday-Friday.
