Three quick West Seattle restaurant notes tonight:

ARTHUR’S GRAND OPENING PUSHED BACK ONE DAY: Don’t show up at 2311 California SW tomorrow morning to be the first to dine at Arthur’s – co-proprietor Rebecca e-mailed today to say they’re opening Friday instead: “Arthur’s is pushing the official opening date back just one day to March 31st. We are excited to see everyone this Friday starting at 8 am!” (Here’s our most-recent report on the new restaurant, which we first mentioned back in November.)

B’S PO BOY TAKING LONGER: We first told you in January about the plan for Cajun cuisine in the ex-Fatburger spot at 2738 Alki SW, and as happens so often, the original timetable for B’s Po Boy was optimistic. We checked back with co-proprietor Deborah, who tells WSB, “We are experiencing construction delays. We are still moving forward, but it is looking more like a June opening.”

SOUTH DELRIDGE NOTE: An early-stage plan in city files suggests a restaurant is proposed for 9211 Delridge Way SW, which has had identities from Dollarwise to dispensary in recent years. No details yet.

    Any update or word on when Drunky Two Shoes BBQ in WC going to open? They probably were optimistic also about their November opening.

    Would love an update on the dog bar at the Alaskan Junction! Can’t wait to go there, and feels like it’s been a while since an update :)

      I assume that it’s just not happening. I do wonder who can afford to keep that space idle for so long.

    Not a restaurant but been waiting on Ulta at WWV for a while too. 

    • Nitro March 30, 2017 (8:49 am)

      Ulta looks close. I walked by there last week and the doors were open. They were getting all of the displays and shelving set up out on the sales floor- so I’d think it would be relatively soon.

        Thanks for the tip! I asked the other day as a comment on the Whole Food story, but never heard an update.

        • WSB March 30, 2017 (9:54 am)

          That’s because we don’t have one. The front sign is up now; we photographed it yesterday, and are going by daily at this point. Haven’t been by yet this morning. Have left messages for their media contact at corporate headquarters. No callback. Big corporation, opening five stores in other states in the next week-plus but this one currently is not on that list. Certainly high interest so we would be publishing something the second we hear anything. If anyone seeing this has inside info, comment here or message us! – TR

    Any news on Popeyes in White Center?

    • AMD March 30, 2017 (9:47 am)

      You can drive by and see the progress on the buildings.  They’re still under construction.

      • West Seattle Hipster March 30, 2017 (11:52 am)

        Thanks, can’t wait.  I hope they drive KFC out of business.

        • AMD March 30, 2017 (7:02 pm)

          I think KFC is driving themselves out of business.

          Seriously, how does a place with “chicken” in the name constantly run out of chicken at, like, 4pm?

          Regarding Ulta, I have a friend who will be working at that location.  She started training yesterday so opening seems imminent.

  • DLB March 30, 2017 (12:07 pm)

    Ulta opens Saturday the 7th according to the very enthusiastic GM and her team who have been interviewing potential staff and doing planning at the various restaurants at Westwood Village. 

    Their Grand Opening celebration is on Saturday the 15th but soft open on the 7th – they are scheduled to start setting up and working on the floor display stuff today or tomorrow. 

    Unofficial, yes, but pretty sure this is the schedule!!

    DLB: April 7 is a Friday…

  • DB March 30, 2017 (9:21 pm)

    Sorry yes it is the 7th – Friday – I confirmed today! And also we will have 20% off coupons tomorrow to give away that will be good the first week! 

Sorry, comment time is over.
