West Seattle restaurants: Chaco Canyon, Meander’s, Talarico’s updates

Three updates on West Seattle restaurants:

CHACO CANYON’S SIDEWALK CAFE: The city has granted a sidewalk-café permit to Chaco Canyon Organic Café (WSB sponsor; 3770 SW Alaska) in The Triangle, and owner Chris Maykut shared the sketch above. It’s not just any “sidewalk café” space – he says it “is being fabricated by a local artist out of cedar and steel whose studio is under the WS bridge (on the downtown side of it) – James Reinhardt, who also did our gorgeous lighting. … He’s shooting for installation around August 15th.”

DINNER AT MEANDER’S: The cozy café north of Morgan Junction (6032 California SW) has announced via Facebook that it’s about to add dinner service, starting next Thursday (August 2nd), 5-10 pm Thursdays-Saturdays, 5-9:30 pm Sundays. They’re promising “meat loaf and mashed potatoes,” among other “exciting and delicious bits.”

NEW HOURS AT TALARICO’S: General manager Daniel Cardinal e-mailed to share the news that Talarico’s Pizzeria (4718 California SW) has new hours – opening for lunch at 11 am six days a week. Their hours are now 3 pm-2 am on Mondays, 11 am-2 am Tuesdays-Sundays (with lunch served 11 am-3 pm). They’re also showing the Olympics live during lunch, Cardinal says.

We’re adding these changes to the WSB West Seattle Restaurant Guide – and in the process of adding a few more pages, too. If you’d like to add your short reviews of favorite local restaurants – not just “hated it” or “loved it,” but recommendations for other diners – just find the page and write your review in the “comments” section!

    Great news about some local favorites but still waiting for an update on the “Sardine Kitchen” that was (or is) supposed to occupy the old Bohemian. Any word?

      Short answer: No. Every time someone says they’ve spotted workers in there, we go over … and they have mysteriously dematerialized. If you happen to see somebody at the site, text us at 206-293-6302. Seriously.

    YES!!! Miranda’s breakfasts are divine. I can only imagine the delicious ecstasy of one of her dinners.

    Yay for Talarico’s being open during lunch!! Their meatball sliders are amazing!

    Meanders is awesome- especially the late night crew (Thurs, Fri, Sat 11pm-4am)! Shout-out to Ed, Isaac and Lexa for keeping all of us night owls well-fed and entertained. :D I’m glad they are expanding to dinner, I’ll be stopping by there soon.

    Seriously, re: Bohemian/Sardines. I saw workers last week. Drove by again about 10 minutes later and the place was locked up tight. I think they’re toying with us.

    Dear Meander’s,

    Please move into the old Charlestown Cafe spot.

    Wow! What a great idea for Meanders! Might be kinda difficult for them though. Lease costs, etc.
    The food is so good!!!!

    Dear Meander’s,
    Please don’t move.

Sorry, comment time is over.
