SUBWAY AT THE BEACH: Thanks to Dale for the tip on this – city records say one of the newly divided spaces at 2758 Alki SW is being turned into a Subway sandwich shop. That would be the fifth in West Seattle by our count, after North Delridge, Morgan Junction, Jefferson Square, and West Marginal Way. The Alki building has been vacant since it was built almost three years ago on the site long occupied by Pegasus Pizza before that restaurant moved next door two years earlier. A few months ago, work began to split it into two spaces; nothing on record so far for the other one. (P.S. Since publishing this, we’ve also found the Alki Subway listed on the company website as “coming soon.”)
Now, to The Junction:
FIREFLY FOLLOWUP: The outdoor seating along the south side of Firefly Café and Creperie (California/Genesee; WSB sponsor), mentioned here a month ago, is up and running as of this holiday weekend. (We’re checking on an ETA for the organic juice bar that’s been in the works, too.)
ANOTHER NORTH DELRIDGE FOOD-TRUCK STOP: The parking lot of West Seattle Corporate Center parking lot at Delridge/Andover is turning into the latest food-truck hot spot. This week will be the second Friday stop, 11 am-2 pm, for the Mediterranean food truck Za’a Tar (thanks to SeattleFoodTruck.com for the tip); here’s their menu. The New Orleans cuisine truck Where Ya At Matt is stopping there Mondays, also 11 am-2 pm, but not today, because of the holiday. (Sunday evening note) The SeattleFoodTruck.com folks say a third truck, Fish Basket, is about to join the lineup too; we’re awaiting confirmation.
