West Seattle/White Center restaurant notes: Proletariat expansion; Cassis update

Two restaurant notes today:

MORE ROOM AT PROLETARIAT PIZZA: In case you didn’t catch the story on our partner site White Center Now, published late last night – Proletariat Pizza in White Center is taking over space next door (formerly Dzul Tattoo) to make more room. Still a work in progress when we stopped by Wednesday afternoon; you’ll see even more progress if you stop by tonight, when PP is taking part in Dining Out For Life. Full story here.

CASSIS UPDATE: More than four months have elapsed since word that Jef Fike, the proprietor of Cassis, a French restaurant that gained fame during a run on Capitol Hill, planned to bring it back – on Alki. Fike called recently to say it’s still in the works. The still-not-officially-announced location will soon undergo renovation, he said, and he’s hoping to be open by July 4th.

    Congrats on the expanded space, Proletariat! So cool!

    I love the fact that Proletariat is expanding but even happier that there is one less tattoo parlor in our area.

      I forgot to mention – Dzul didn’t go out of business – they moved to Belltown.

    Wait, hipsters don’t like tattoos now? It’s so hard to keep up. ;)
    Hooray for Proletariat’s expansion! Love that place.

    If we could only get the pawn shops to move to Belltown as well…….

    Just last night I was there for my first time, great pizza, will be returning soon with the whole fam-damily!!!

    So glad to see Cassis will be following us to Alki. It was a favorite of ours on Capitol Hill. French bistro food will be a nice addition to the spectrum of WS restaurants.

    Hope that expansion will include room for pizza-by-the-slice!

    You just can’t beat PP!

  • Edd April 30, 2013 (12:03 pm)

    That looks really good! More room, more pizza! Sounds good to me :)

    Still dreaming of the Italian Wedding Soup we enjoyed so many years ago at Cassis–please say it is returning!

Sorry, comment time is over.
