As far as your appetite is concerned, there's a lot to be excited about this week. We've rounded up newly reopened spots offering takeout and delivery, new specials, and other stuff you might like to know, from new omakase dinners from Sushi Kashiba to the return of the Queen Anne Farmers Market and Caffe Vita to a Sunday Funday Pop-Up at Citizen this Sunday. Read on for details, and check out our complete takeout and delivery directory and our ongoing list of to-go restaurant specials for more ideas.
REOPEN FOR TAKEOUT
The Pike Place pasta shop is back open for Friday-Sunday pickup.
Sugar + Spoon
The U-District brick and mortar location of the ready-to-eat cookie dough purveyors has new limited hours from 12-7 pm daily. Shoot them a text to schedule a pickup time or order online for free next-day delivery.
Queen Anne Farmers Market
The Queen Anne Farmers Market reopened yesterday. As with the University District, Ballard, and West Seattle markets, shoppers are encouraged to wear masks, travel solo, leave pets at home, and sign a voluntary oath promising to keep a safe distance. Some vendors are offering preorders to limit shopping time.
The Queen Anne cafe will mark its reopening with a pop-up and Northwest Harvest food drive at 10 am on Sunday in their outdoor beer garden. Wear a mask, keep your distance, and stop by to browse to-go goodies from Hello Robin, Tres Lecheria, and Rubinstein Bagels. Don't forget to bring canned food to donate.
Cues & Brews BBQ Bash for Frontline Foods Seattle
Jack's BBQ, Reuben's Brews, and Snohomish Pie Co. are teaming up for a dinner package on Saturday, May 30, benefiting Frontline Foods Seattle, a volunteer-led mission to feed those working on the frontlines. The parcel includes a four-course tasting menu from Jack’s BBQ and Snohomish Pie Company, an exclusive virtual Zoom dinner with the BBQ pitmasters and brewers (and your neighbors), and a four-beer pairing from Reuben's Brews for an extra $25.
The cocktail and charcuterie spot's lead bartenders will teach you their mixology secrets in happy hour Zoom classes that come with cosmo, Moscow mule, old fashioned, mojito, or shot kits.
Georgetown Brewing Company
Since reopening their doors last weekend, Georgetown Brewing has already sold upwards of 2,500 cases of their wildly popular Manny's Pale Ale, available in cans for the first time ever. Now, in addition to the supply they have at the brewery (there's a two-case limit per person, which can only be purchased onsite, while supplies last—we recommend calling ahead), you can also find cans at your local grocery store. They've compiled this list of participating stores, but be aware that these cans sell like hotcakes and may be sold out once you show up. Oh, and all proceeds will benefit relief programs for service industry workers.
Hama Hama Company
Local restaurant mavens and seafood queens Renee Erickson and Julia Sullivan will lead you on an oyster-shucking journey via Zoom on Saturday, May 30. The $75 package that comes along with the class includes four dozen oysters, including Pelican, Hama Hama, Blue Pool, and Sea Cow varietals, along with Henrietta Red Green Curry Butter and other optional add-ons.
Seattle sushi pioneer Shiro Kashiba, who's credited with bringing sushi to Seattle in the 1960s, is offering takeout omakase (which at $100 per person comes with 10 pieces of sushi, nine pieces of sashimi, his signature black cod and tamago dishes, and a side of rice) at his Pike Place restaurant.
Sémillon Bakery & Café
Debbie Nam's French-style bakery will close its doors forever. However, they say that "a different shop will be opening in our old space soon with some of our old recipes and a bunch of new offerings."
UPCOMING SPECIALS & OPENINGS
Inspired by William Speidel’s classic cookbooks, Addo's You Can't Eat Mt. Rainier series is back, bringing $65 Saturday meals (starting June 6) to enjoy at home that highlight different eras in the Seattle restaurant scene.
The London Plane
The airy Melrose Market restaurant will reopen on Wednesday, June 3 with all sorts of pantry items, baked goods, cooking gear, and other goodies in store. Their new hours will be 10 am-6 pm, Wednesday-Saturday.
Sisters and Brothers
The popular fried-chicken restaurant (which got a boost when Guy Fieri featured it on an episode of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives) is opening a new flagship location in the former space of Chen's Village in Interbay on Wednesday, June 3, reports Eater.
Starting in June, Christina Wood's pop-up bakery will start doing weekly pastry box pickups with two options: a TGIF Sweets box on Fridays and a Weekend Survival box with a mix of savory and sweet items, a jar of jam, and a six-ounce bag of Broadcast coffee on Saturdays.
