West Seattle restaurant update: Opening day for Quadrato

(Photos added 11:56 am)
10:05 AM: This is expected to be opening day for Quadrato, the sandwich/pizza/salad shop in The Junction that we first told you about in May. Proprietor Cary Kemp, who also owns Pizzeria 22 in the Admiral District, says that assuming the final health inspection goes as expected this morning, Quadrato (4302 SW Oregon) is expected to open for lunch around 11:30 am; regular hours starting tomorrow would be 11 am-8 pm daily; see its menu here. We’ll be checking in later this morning and will update.

11:20 AM: Just stopped by – it’s open! (Shown in the photo above this paragraph – part of the seating counter, the lighting, and the window facing SW Oregon. There are tables on the sidewalk, too.)

    Veal Meatballs! I eat meat, but not baby cows held in pens and slaughter without being able to move. No thanks to eating here.

    sounds dee-lish !

  • 44thRes October 7, 2013 (12:33 pm)

    I can’t wait for dinner!

  • Curmudge October 7, 2013 (12:49 pm)

    Just what WS needs, yet another pizza joint. Maybe a few more nail salons could open as well.

  • Bornonalki October 7, 2013 (12:56 pm)

    Just had the inferno to go. Smelled so good I had to break into it on the way home and I only live 6 blocks away! Sooooo good! Two words…. Go Now!!

    Oopsie TR. Talarico…

    Curmudge: This is really yet another sandwich place. Like Husky Deli or Pico (have you tried their Torta??? OMG)

    • WSB October 7, 2013 (1:24 pm)

      Thanks, DHG! Right between the two construction sites. I think I have a blind spot there because they were adults-only when they first opened and we had a young kid at the time… anyway. I stand corrected!

  • Phil Herrera October 7, 2013 (1:41 pm)

    I just stopped in for lunch and had the veal meatball sub. It was fantastic on so many levels. Crisp bread, robust tomato sauce and the meatballs were perfectly cooked. I’ll be back for sure.

    I really think that the market should decide if we have enough pizza places. If we have too many, some will fail, it’s self-correcting.

  • alki forever October 7, 2013 (1:55 pm)

    At least its healthier than a fattening coffee and donut shop. Don’t need anymore of those around.

  • jayjayb October 7, 2013 (3:38 pm)

    I was their first customer today….had the Inferno sandwich….it was really good. Keep up the good work and I am sure that I will be back soon!

  • Guy October 7, 2013 (5:47 pm)

    Only $10.00 for a sandwich? Pfft!

  • 2 Much Whine October 7, 2013 (5:50 pm)

    Cowpie, so you’re saying you only eat ADULT cows and chickens that are raised in a pen and slaughtered without being able to move? I bet the meatballs are yummy and we do not share the same concerns for cow happiness. I’ve got to try them!

  • KD October 7, 2013 (8:15 pm)

    A fancy grilled cheese? I’ll be there!!!

  • Last53BusRider October 7, 2013 (8:24 pm)

    @alki forever – where are all the donut shops around here?

  • Ajax October 7, 2013 (10:40 pm)

    Ewwwww, Too Much Whine. I know plenty of people who eat meat, but very few who are proud of the misery it causes to the animals. Really creepy.

  • west seattlite October 8, 2013 (8:24 am)

    Yay for Quadrato! Congratulations Cary. Not only is your menu perfection, you have a wonderful staff and there’s something about the ambience that really makes you feel good when you step inside. It’s the same mood we get when we dine at Pizzeria 22. Now we have two favorite places to dine. Supporting local is what keeps West Seattle strong. We wish you much continued success.

  • sam-c October 8, 2013 (9:04 am)

    last53rider- I was wondering the same thing. there’s the wonderful Original Bakery over by the ferry, but what else? I wouldn’t mind if a Top Pot moved in to WS.

  • K October 8, 2013 (9:14 am)

    We had a few slices from here yesterday (other half must have been one of the first customers). The slice with breadcrumbs was strangely weird, yes delicious. The slices are the adult version of my beloved slices from this place: http://www.framinghambakingcompany.com/

  • Queenie October 8, 2013 (3:10 pm)

    Based on my experiences at Pizzeria 22, I am sure this will be exquisite. Mmm.

    Also, alkiforever, I confess that I would love a doughnut shop in the junction. Its probably VERY good that we don’t have one, and I would hope that I wouldn’t go there often if we did… but sometimes a doughnut is *amazing*, terrible for they as they are.

  • SaraS October 8, 2013 (4:49 pm)

    If this place fails, it will be because the sandwiches w/ no sides are $9-10. Might be good for a one off but not for a repeat appearance.

  • Wes C. Addle October 8, 2013 (6:00 pm)

    Most sandwiches that are of decent quality are in the $9-10 range. Tat’s, Calozzis, etc. . . You can grab a cheaper one at QFC or Subway of course.

  • Jenfin October 8, 2013 (8:13 pm)

    It appears the sandwiches come with a side of macaroni salad after reading the menu. Sounds delicious. Can’t wait to give it a try.

  • Sarge October 8, 2013 (10:36 pm)

    Hey Cowpie,get down off your high horse and let us locals enjoy a new place to eat. My wife and I enjoy our time out in West Seattle and we will visit this new place despite your snarky comment.
    Dont like veal? Tough, suck it up and shut your trap. You should be thankful to have the choice to eat what you like.
    The rest of the world is not the pretty place you think it is.

    Bad attitude
    Mediocre food
    Poor service

Sorry, comment time is over.
