BIZNOTE: New (sort of) ownership for The Swinery in West Seattle

Thanks to Pamela Rogers for the photo and report:

Longtime Manager/Head Chef Kim Anne Leveille and lifelong West Seattle resident (WSHS 2007) Sous Chef/Butcher Danny Rogers are ecstatic to announce West Seattle Swinery is now employee-owned!

Kim has managed and run the front of the store for over seven years, while Danny has been behind the scenes butchering, smoking and grilling some of the neighborhood’s favorite meats. On the corner of California and Hanford, the West Seattle Swinery is a one-stop shop offering a meat market, grilled burgers, specialty sandwiches, and deli products. The Food Network’s Grill Dads recently featured the Double B (bacon and belly) sandwich and Danger Fries.

Kim and Danny are looking forward to continuing to provide West Seattle with the family environment that is at the heart of our community, celebrating good food and good friends! Stop by and say hello (or Bonjour to Kim).

    Congratulations!  I am glad you have made it through the construction inconvenience,  & hopefully you’ll have some good and easy sailing for the foreseeable future.  Very neat you guys are now owners!

    Fantastic! I tell all my peeps about The Swinery. Best butcher shop in Western WA, IMHO.

    Nice, unless of course you are an oinker!

    Best cheeseburger in town.

    Love these two and their sugar free/nitrate free bacon is the best.

    Congrats! I very much enjoy this little gem in WS – local burger shops are harder to find these days. Plus they have poutine!!

    I’m surprised and delighted to hear this news.  Kim is a sweetheart and a culinary star!  I’m a huge fan of her cassoulet.

    Great news. The Swinery is still the best butcher shop in W. Seattle (quality-wise).
    I have to admit, however, for the last couple years the quality of their prepared food has been hit and miss, at times distressingly poor. Folks need to step up their game.
    Speaking as a chef and consumer here.

Sorry, comment time is over.
