Sandwiches, salads, and pan pizza by the slice are all on the way to 4304 SW Oregon in The Junction, via restaurateur Cary Kemp, who opened Pizzeria 22 two years ago in Admiral. He tells WSB:
It is an old storefront from the 1920’s and was once a deli in the 1970’s. It will be called Quadrato, which means square in Italian, and we will use many of the imported Italian ingredients used at Pizzeria 22 to make sandwiches, salads, as well as Roman and Sicilian-style sheet pan pizza, which is cut into large squares and sold by the slice. Also available will be grilled panini sandwiches as well as Italian wine and local beer. We will be baking our own cookies and other sweets for dessert.
The place is very small and will have counter-style seating with about 10 bar stools for indoor dining, also outdoor seating during the warmer months of the year. This will be a comfortable place to take a date for lunch or dinner, or order to go. We will also be teaming up with the Beer Junction and delivering our food to their location around the corner. We are very excited to be a part of the Alaska Junction and the great diversity of local stores that make this community one of the best in Seattle for buying and shopping local!
As always, it’s hard to predict how long it will take to remodel a space – this one used to be an insurance office – but Cary says his architect says they might be ready “as early as August!”
