West Seattle (and vicinity) food and drink news: 5 notes

Five West Seattle food and drink notes to share tonight:

LUNCH RETURNS TO SKYLARK: After the new owners of Skylark Café and Club took over, they said they planned to bring back lunch. And they have done just that. Co-proprietor Matt Larson says they’re open for lunch daily at 11:30 “and have our new menu in effect as well. It features our house cured bacon and pastrami, house ground beef, and a good selection of salads and sammies. Looking forward to giving our neighbors a new lunch option.” The A-board photo is courtesy of Skylark neighbor PB&J Textiles (WSB sponsor).

In The Junction:

PAGLIACCI REMODELING: Noticing the work under way at Pagliacci Pizza‘s West Seattle delivery kitchen, we took the question to their company HQ and co-proprietor Matt Galvin replied that they are “siding the building, putting up a new sign, new awning, new flower pots, windows, bar-height seating inside, additional entrance that can access outside seating, and interior painting. We are excited about the long-overdue improvements to the building. We are hoping the work will be finished by Thanksgiving.”

NEW SPECIALS AT MARINATION MA KAI: At Seacrest Pier, Marination ma kai (WSB sponsor) has launched a new round of bar specials – listed on this flyer, which also points out the MMK happy hours, Tuesdays-Fridays, 3-6 pm.

TAP STATION NOW OPEN: The beer/wine store at 35th/Kenyon is now serving customers, reports West Seattle-headquartered Washington Beer Blog. We featured the then-in-the-works Tap Station here back in June.

MUDHONEY ICE-CREAM-LAUNCH PARTY: Full Tilt Ice Cream‘s flagship location in White Center (9629 16th SW) has announced a launch party for its ice-cream flavor named after Seattle’s legendary band Mudhoney. At 6:30 pm December 11th – a Wednesday, which is usually FT’s “Bring Your Own Vinyl Night” – they’re planning to spin Mudhoney’s greatest hits while scooping Mudhoney ice cream, described in FT’s news release as “Mudhoney ice cream mixes satisfying riffs of in-your-face cinnamon with a mellow backbeat of honey and fudge, all rounded out with Full Tilt’s creamy hand-made texture . . . Like all Full Tilt ice cream, Mudhoney is crafted in small batches, so it’s always extra smooth and luscious.” Its local ingredients include West Seattle’s own Shipwreck Honey.

    Hope Pagliacci starts selling by the slice

    same here, that’s why I opened the page to comment. when we lived on capitol hill we used to eat there all the time. we never go there for a whole pie, usually don’t need that much

      We’ll follow up and ask about the slices question.

    New menu at the Skylark is super good!

    Ditto on the slices – they would sell tons!

    They sell slices on lower Queen Anne and although the interior is set up diffently basically more space dont see why they can’t at least get a small heated display appliance to sell the basic pepperoni , cheese ect…. . Thanks WSB for asking about this with HQ and following up. What an awesome resource for West Seattle .

    Any update on Milo’s Brickyard? They had their “open” sign on the other day and it looked like people were inside eating. Haven’t seen it open again in the last few days.

      Maybe it was a friends/family open? Someone sent us a note a couple days ago slugged “Milo’s Brickyard Grill open” but no further info; unfortunately, we have no contacts and I cannot find any evidence of even a Facebook page, much less a website. But we crane our necks every time we go by … and whenever we can confirm they’re officially open, we’ll report it! – TR

Sorry, comment time is over.
