A MELROSE MARKET-TYPE PROJECT FOR LOWER QUEEN ANNE
Scott Shapiro, the co-developer of Melrose Market, has big plans for the lower Queen Anne area. On W. Thomas, where an industrial space blocks a beautiful water view, Shapiro envisions a market full of local restaurants and retailers. The plan is to split the 6,700 square-foot building into nine units. The unit which features a deck that looks over the bay is planned to hold an anchor restaurant. The market is expected to open in the latter half of 2014.
NEW SEATTLE RESTAURANT WESTWARD TAKES A DIFFERENT APPROACH
The recently opened Seattle restaurant Westward, located between the Seattle Marina and Sky Launch boat storage, is a fresh new dining spot with unique cocktails and a “different” menu. The new seafood restaurant is not a hulking special-occasion restaurant fit for a wedding party. Instead, it’s a unique, modern restaurant with high ceilings and paintings of ships hung on the walls. Most every table is in plain view of the lake, and the food steers clear of pomp; no rich sauces or surf-&-turf combos. Westward is designed for “feasting and sharing,” which means typical menu categories such as appetizers and entrées are left off the menu. Instead, customers can tell the waiter how hungry they are and the staff will customize choices accordingly.
