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!
