Shadowland takes shape

The facade of the former Neilsen Florist shop in The Junction continues to evolve toward the space’s new identity as Shadowland.


Its proprietor tells WSB “things are moving along well” — they’re now drywalling inside, and hoping to open in about a month, though he adds it’s been tough to nail down a date (so many factors outside a would-be entrepreneur’s control, as we have learned while watching other new WS businesses-in-progress).

    Oh yea! Another restaurant….sooper-de-dooper! Hey I got a good idea! I am going to open my own 21 and over, pet store/pizzeria/mexi-american/disco/gas station and I shall name it…..ready for it……”West Seattle use to be a great place for family dining we can afford”! I know it’s a little long but I figured with such a postmodern concept, I should be specific with the name. WSUTBAGPFFDWCA!

    Sarcasm aside, why are we losing the only american family restaurant, Charleston Street Cafe, and gaining restaurants that I am either afraid to let me little ones into or they are not allowed?

    I hear they’re going to have a big screen with nightly showings of this.

    Wes, if your new restaurant doesn’t serve pie or cupcakes, I’m not coming. :)

    McDonalds is not an American family restaurant? There’s two of ’em on California alone.

    Seriously, though, what could be more American than going out for pizza with your family? And there’s absolutely no shortage of that available, with kids aplenty, in every nook and corner of WS.

    The Alki Homestead is still pretty basic, American food, and fairly kid friendly. It’s not that expensive, either.

    my family and I (2 kids under 8 yo) love eating at eats market – they have an area outside where the kids can play and an awesome kids menu, plus yummy stuff for us parents and incredible ice cream!

Sorry, comment time is over.
