West Seattle restaurants: Bada Bistro confirms it’s opening tomorrow

Following up on last week’s much-discussed preview of Bada Bistro, the new identity for the 61st/Alki SW corner restaurant that previously was Beachside Café and before that, Alki Bakery: Co-owner Sharon Bang confirms they will open tomorrow night, which was the target date when we last heard from her. She wants potential patrons to know that it’s a “locally owned and operated beachside restaurant on Alki Beach. We are dedicated to providing excellent food and beverages, and highest-quality service to our guests. Everything from our kitchen is scratch-made, as well as many of our bar items including bitters, spirit infusions, and our signature syrups. We offer many gluten-free options on our menu.” The menu is now online, including prices. They’re planning to start with dinner this week, add Happy Hour next week, then lunch and brunch when they’re ready; the hours for opening week are on their website at badabistro.com.

    Welcome! Nice, overwhelming selection of food and spirits! Great bubbly selections and I love that they are catering to food allergy sufferers without sacrificing creativity! Look forward to welcoming them to the neighborhood And frankly, the wines they are offering will quickly make people forget they won’t be serving Merlot.

    Actually there are some killer Merlots out there but you gotta pay over $20 a bottle. They go well with seafood =)

    Don’t the owners here also own/operate Alki Cafe next door?

      Yes, as has been reported in previous coverage. This was just a quick update.

Sorry, comment time is over.
