West Seattle restaurant updates: Quadrato, Brickyard

QUADRATO: Four months after unveiling his plan, proprietor Cary Kemp says the sandwich/pizza/coffee shop at 4304 SW Oregon between Brunette Mix (WSB sponsor) and Many Moons is close to opening – likely either next Monday (September 30th) or the Monday after that (October 7th). We dropped by the cozy shop for photos today.

You might also have noticed Quadrato’s neon sign (upper left of photo above) that’s up – smaller than the one at Kemp’s other eatery, Pizzeria 22. Quadrato does have a website – quadrato.co. The menu, says Kemp, is in final development.

BRICKYARD: We’ve received a few tips about activity at the long-shuttered Brickyard BBQ location in The Admiral District (2308 California SW). And evidence suggests it is indeed getting set to reopen:

The flyer posted on its locked gate is a liquor-license application under the name Milo’s Brickyard Grill. One of our tipsters, Eric, says he talked with people there working in the space who said they’re hoping to open within a week or so, depending on when the license is granted. Nobody there when we went by for a photo but we’ll check back.

    Just wondering who the ownership of Milo’s Brickyard might be. WS Blog, any ideas?

    • WSB September 23, 2013 (5:23 pm)

      Mike – there are a couple names in the LLC which you can find in state corporation search, LLC also named Milo’s Brickyard Grill.

    When you do open up ,Brickyard, do your part and set stood example to your neighboring businesses / competition and please keep our sidewalks and streets clean out front of the enevitable cigarette trash that comes with drinking establishments. I sure know when I use to spend money in establishments in north admiral ,enjoying myself with a few drinks, I smoked and most likely threw a few or many upon the sidewalk. Send the an employee out regularily to clean up do your part and hope business goes well for you.

    Will Quadrato be any larger in square footage than Pizzeria 22? Will it have wood fired pizza, or just a slices kinda place? If it is bigger than 22, great.

      JayDee – when I wrote cozy, I mean cozy. Follow the link to the earlier story – Cary said seating for maybe 10 (having been in there today … that might be COZY) … I suspect it will be more a pickup-and-takeout place. That said, my son and I went to Salumi downtown recently for the first time ever, and THAT was certainly cozy for all the fame it’s had …

    I’m really looking forward to this opening! We live at the intersection of Oregon and 44th Ave SW, almost literally across the street..:-)I love my pizza slices from Bakery Nouveau, but choice and proximity are good.

  • Guy September 23, 2013 (6:21 pm)

    The new owners name might be Milo

  • JayDee September 23, 2013 (6:34 pm)

    My bad, I see Slices on the window banner. D’oh!

  • Fregirl September 23, 2013 (8:29 pm)

    Hoping the food will be something more than blah and bland at the new Brickyard. Love the space but the food has been substandard and overpriced with both the last two incarnations. Thus it was rarely a surprise it always seemed empty even at peak times. Worst BBQ we’ve had in Seattle the final time we went there.

  • chris September 23, 2013 (8:29 pm)

    Glad to hear that the Brickyard will not become another Mexican Restaurant like rumored.

  • JayDee September 23, 2013 (9:04 pm)

    Ok, so much on hoping for more. I like folks but at a distant remove away…

  • Ajax September 23, 2013 (9:39 pm)

    Assuming the folks opening Quadrato are by now used to all the finicky West Seattle lifers, but to the Milo’s proprietors: Welcome to West Seattle and don’t take it personally! Best of luck to both business – I’m looking forward to giving them a try even if they don’t meet my very specific ideas of how they should run their businesses.

    I’m hoping the WSB think seriously about monetizing the comments section. Possibly a credit pool of $5 minimum and all comments costing 10 cents. This would condition the readers to actually read and view pictures.
    If comments are posted or information is requested…Cha Ching!

    My 10 cents if you want it.

  • North Admiral September 24, 2013 (10:52 am)

    Unless Brickyard has been sold, I believe it shares ownership with Guadalajara in Morgan Junction. But perhaps this is old news. Or incorrect news…or just urban legend.

    • WSB September 24, 2013 (11:01 am)

      That’s who bought it last year. However, at some point, it closed quietly. So the names on the LLC that owns it now may be new, or not …

  • 35this35mph September 24, 2013 (11:06 am)

    I had really good bbq at Brickyard and was sorely disappointed when they morphed into a Mexican restaurant. I love Mexican but have 12 + choices in WS. Barbecue,not so much.Hoping that will be the new menu (again).

  • Sonoma September 24, 2013 (2:47 pm)

    WHAT? Where is the usual “So excited! Please, please, please have gluten-free!” comment? ;)

    • WSB September 24, 2013 (2:49 pm)

      Perhaps because neither of these is wholly new news. But when we get menus and final info, gluten-free or not, they’ll be in the restaurant guide … TR

  • biankat September 25, 2013 (11:22 am)

    Super excited for Cary’s new venture. Ventidue is one of our repeat restaurants. Yay, pizza!

Sorry, comment time is over.
