West Seattle restaurants: Reborn Cassis reportedly Alki-bound

January 10, 2013 at 2:27 pm | In West Seattle news, West Seattle restaurants | 8 Comments

The citywide food community is abuzz today about the Seattle Times (WSB partner) report that a long-gone, much-missed French restaurant is making a comeback – not on Capitol Hill, where it was before, but here in West Seattle. In The Times’ “All You Can Eat” section, Rebekah Denn broke the news last night that the owner of Cassis, which closed in 2004, plans to bring it back at an unspecified Alki spot. Read her story here. We’ve tried to reach the restaurant-to-be’s proprietor for more information – so far, no response.


  1. Unspecified Alki location? You mean that ONE empty building (next to Starbucks) they’ve been trying to fill with a restaurant for years? My money’s on that…what else is empty and available?

  6. C’est formidable! It’s high time WS got a French resaurant; all other ethnic cuisines are well represented. I know we had that one try where Pegasus is now, but I think their cuisine was a bit inaccessible for the neighborhood. Go with a more casual ‘bistro’ style, and they should be OK.

    Bonne chance, Cassis!

  7. Great news! I’ve been wishing for a bistro-style French restaurant here in WS for years. Now, if we can just get a good Chinese restaurant…

  8. Cassis gave us the desire to visit Provence. When we did our second trip to the Nice area we went and visited its namesake.
    The old restaurant on Capital Hill transported you to France as soon as you closed the bistro’s door behind you. A glass of champagne or Lillet with a twist . . .and you are on your way. Can’t wait until you open again. Merci!
