West Seattle restaurant notes: Harry’s Chicken Joint half-iversary; Alki Subway opening; WSB guide update

Three West Seattle restaurant notes today:

HARRY’S CHICKEN JOINT: North of Morgan Junction, Harry’s Chicken Joint (WSB sponsor) is planning its six-month celebration … half-iversary, you could say. Two weeks from today, according to proprietor Bruce:

Just wanted to give you a heads up, we are planning quite a party on Saturday, September 7th to celebrate the six-month anniversary of Harry’s Chicken Joint.

We will close that evening and take our chicken and treats a few blocks south to the Beveridge Place Pub from 6-9PM. It will be a fun time for Harry’s to thank all our loyal friends, neighbors, and guests.

We are also introducing some new menu items: shrimp po’ boy, oyster po’ boy, greens, and a salad.

Come on down and say hello. You’ll have to pay for your beer, wine or cider, but Harry’s will provide the food from 6-9.

In the meantime, check out Harry’s during its regular hours at 6032 California SW, Tuesdays-Saturdays, 4-9 pm. (Harry’s has a menu-enhanced website now as well as its Facebook page.)

ALKI SUBWAY OPENING: Tomorrow (Sunday, August 25th) will be opening day for the new Alki Subway (as first reported here in May, it’s in half the three-year-old, never-occupied space at 2758 Alki SW). **6:44 pm update, as noted in comments – the date was on a hand-lettered sign in the window when we walked by just after 11 this morning, but as of 15 minutes ago, THAT sign has been replaced by another hand-lettered one saying “Opening Soon.”

WSB RESTAURANT GUIDE UPDATES: We have added a few pages to the WSB West Seattle Restaurant Guide, including one for Westcity Sardine Kitchen, which might come in handy since WSK doesn’t have a website of its own, and a page for Chopstix. If there’s something you’d like to say about your favorite West Seattle restaurant(s), remember that each eatery’s page in our guide does have a spot for comments. P.S. to restaurant owners: We make the rounds every few months by phone/online checking for changes to hours and other key info, but you are welcome at any time to e-mail us with updates if you make changes or discover something outdated in our guide – editor@westseattleblog.com – thanks! (The restaurant guide, in case you wondered, is NOT a paid-advertising section – it’s one of our free services to both readers and local venues. WSB does have restaurants on the sponsor team, and they get special mention atop the restaurant guide’s index page, as well as in the WSB Sponsors directory, and you’ll see their ads on the WSB sidebar.)

    Are you sure subway is opening tomorrow? The west Seattle herald says it’s grand opening was today.

    • WSB August 24, 2013 (5:51 pm)

      Yes, the sign said plain as day, opening tomorrow, Sunday, August 25th. And it was after 11 am when I walked by and read said sign. Sorry I didn’t take a pic, was toting two heavy bags of equipment back to my car from covering the Cross-Sound Race – TR

        Update! Just went down as a detour while headed to WS Outdoor Movies – new sign in the windows – “tomorrow” is gone, and this time (hand-lettered as was “tomorrow, Aug. 25”) – OPENING SOON. Pic: http://westseattleblog.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/sub644.jpg
        So maybe not even tomorrow. But we’ll be back at Alki again tomorrow morning for the 5K, so we’ll see if THAT changes … TR

    OMG a Subway on Alki? We’re all gonna die, we’re all gonna die! Oh wait, it’s just a Subway on Alki… whew!

    • WSB August 24, 2013 (7:16 pm)

      Already went through that thread :) And the sequel, “OMG, a Fatburger on Alki?” … TR

    Can’t wait for Fatburger to open. I was hoping they would be open in August. From the looks of it, they are at least 3 weeks away from opening.

    Harrys chicken is incredibly delicious. Their sides are great too. I always forget they are here, I need to go there more. Now I want fried chicken

    Was wondering why Ampersand wasn’t on the restaurant list. I haven’t tried them yet, but plant to soon.

  • SunriseHeights August 25, 2013 (7:16 am)

    Not sure if I missed this in a previous update, but is Athena’s in Highland Park closed? Drove by yesterday and the windows are all covered up…

    • WSB August 25, 2013 (7:51 am)

      Athena’s proprietor mentioned on Facebook that he was closing the bricks and mortar for a while for remodeling.

Sorry, comment time is over.
