Dig into these West Seattle food notes/updates:
PAGLIACCI EXPANDS DELIVERY ZONE, GETS READY TO START JUNCTION EXPANSION: Next year marks 20 years since Pagliacci Pizza added a “delivery kitchen” in West Seattle. But it’s never delivered to all of WS. If you’ve been reading WSB since before we became a news publication, you might remember a vigorous discussion of Pagliacci’s delivery zone dating back to early 2007. With the issue still out there, when we reported back in December on their plan to expand the Junction location, adding seating and slices, we asked about delivery-zone expansion. They weren’t sure at the time, but now they have announced they’re heading further into the south and northeast areas of WS. Pagliacci’s Rebekah Wolf sent this to us:
We’re happy to announce that our delivery zone coverage has expanded. We are now delivering to SW Thistle Street, from 28th Avenue SW to Fauntleroy Way SW. Also, we are now delivering to the Pigeon Point neighborhood, which goes as far east as 19th Avenue SW, between SW Charlestown Street and SW Genesee Street.
The note also said the expansion into the space next door will start April 1st and should be complete by mid-June; the delivery kitchen will stay open during the work. Meantime, Lika Love, the boutique that’s temporarily been in the space next door since Clementine’s moved to Pioneer Square, is having a farewell party/sale 5-8 pm on March 28th.
TOP POT DOUGHNUTS NOW OPEN: As reported here earlier in the week, today is grand-opening day for Top Pot Doughnuts on Alki, at 2758 Alki SW in a space that was completed three-plus years ago but hasn’t had a tenant until now. We stopped by and found a crowd:
Hours and menu notes are in our report from Wednesday.
ST. PATRICK’S DAY: Jenny at The Bridge sends word they’re having specials: “Tuesday night, we are celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with Jon the Bagpiper coming by at 7 pm to play for us as well as an Irish themed fresh sheet throughout the month of March featuring Beet Salad, Irish Stew and Reubens!” Any other local restaurants with special menus for the wearin’ of the green? Let us know and we’ll add them – firstname.lastname@example.org – thanks!
