(STORY UPDATED MONDAY with planned days/hours)
It’s been almost four months since Duos Catering moved into the former Avalon Restaurant spot at 2940 SW Avalon Way (as reported here in August). The owners said they planned to open a “neighborhood hangout” – and they’re finally ready. Last night, during their “soft open,” WSB contributing photojournalist Nick Adams stopped in, photographing both the small-plates food …
(Grass-fed beef sliders with applewood-smoked bacon, Tillamook cheddar, onion jam)
… and the people – here’s co-owner Benjamin Jury checking in with guests:

More food – this is asparagus soup, with Parmesan custard and Parmesan tuile:
In the kitchen, executive chef/co-owner Wil Yee, putting the finishing touches on an order of crab cakes:
Here’s the crab cake, with Dungeness crab, apple salad, saffron & vanilla bean beurre blanc, citrus gastrique:

One more food photo! Corn dogs (really!) with fresh-corn crust and chipotle honey mustard:
While this is a “limited opening” week, Duos tells us the grand opening is planned for next Friday and Saturday:
P.S. For a look at the “limited opening” menu – go here. And call to check if they’re open before you go, since this is “limited opening” week – 206-452-2452.
ADDED MONDAY: Benjamin Jury says they’ve decided on days/hours for starters: “We had a great weekend working kinks out and feeling good about our service. We plan on being open Tues – Saturday from 5-9:30 for food, and bar stays open until 12 Tues-Thurs., 2 am Fri-Sat. Our kitchen hours aren’t set in stone and will probably change after the new year. This next weekend will be our Grand Opening.”
Sorry, comment time is over.
