Restaurant updates: Zippy’s, A Terrible Beauty, Proletariat Pizza

Quick news bites regarding local restaurants current and future:

UPDATE ON ZIPPY’S GIANT BURGERS’ PROGRESS TOWARD WHITE CENTER REOPENING: You’ll recall that Zippy’s had hoped to open its new, expanded White Center location last Monday, but as reported here that day, some inspections/permits were taking longer than expected. WSB/White Center Now contributor Deanie Schwarz reports an update tonight from Zippy’s proprietor Blaine Cook: Looks like it’ll be at least another week. An intertwined list of installations and inspections (involving alarms, electrical, and fire suppression) isn’t done yet, and Cook says next Tuesday is their “best-case scenario.”

UPDATE ON A TERRIBLE BEAUTY’S PROGRESS TOWARD WEST SEATTLE OPENING: WSB contributor Katie Meyer talked today with the co-owner of the new Irish restaurant/pub coming to California/Edmunds in The Junction, Jenna Shannon Garvey O’Brien. She told Katie the finish work is taking longer than they thought it would, so they believe it’ll be “another two weeks, three at the most” before they’ll be ready to open. Jenna was out front staining the window trim when Katie caught up with her; she explained they’re enjoying doing some of the work themselves, and she appreciates the kindness of folks who have been stopping by to ask about progress, or shouting out from their cars, or sending enthusiastic e-mail.

PROLETARIAT PIZZA ADDS SUNDAYS: Just announced last hour via Twitter, White Center’s popular pizza place is going to be open on Sundays starting June 4th.

    It’s going to be a tasty summer, methinks.

    Hooray for Proleteriat being open on Sundays!! I’ve been wanting to try their pizza and I live on Admiral… so it’s too far for me to really justify during the week, and my Saturdays are busy. June 5th here I come.

    I’m sooo lookingh forward to the opening of A Terrible Beauty. I really hope that pub/restaurant is a hit in a space that hasn’t worked for so many.

Sorry, comment time is over.
