When last we photographed Aaron Shepherd, he was busy fixing up his restaurant-to-be at 2329 California SW in The Admiral District. Today – the Copper Coin is officially open for the first full day of lunch/dinner/bar business (after a “soft open” night for dinner back on Monday).
As noted in our original August story, not only was Shepherd already a successful restaurateur in Shoreline, he also is from the family that runs Red Mill Burgers. And you’ll see a hint of that on the menu (note the description of the onion rings). Beer is a big deal at Copper Coin too – our friends at Washington Beer Blog tapped into that part of the story (and the first-night food). CC hours for starters are 11:30-11:00 Sunday-Thursday, 11:30-12:00 Friday-Saturday. And yes, the new restaurant/bar has a page in the WSB West Seattle Restaurant Guide.
