BIZNOTE: Biscuit Bitch coming to White Center

When Chef Case Justham announced the closure of Brass Knuckle Bistro (9602 16th SW) – as reported on our partner site White Center Now – he added, “We’ve got a great buyer taking over, an iconic local spot that will be a perfect fit for the neighborhood, that I’m sure everyone will be extremely excited about.”

Post-closure, a handwritten note on the door named that “iconic local spot” as Biscuit Bitch, a sassy spot for breakfast/brunch, with three downtown locations – Pike Place, Pioneer Square, and Belltown. We’ve finally confirmed the White Center expansion plan, after reaching BB by phone today. No estimate yet for when they’ll open, we were told, but they’ve taken over the space. Never been to Biscuit Bitch? Here’s the menu.

    This is awesome news…. BB on the peninsula, I’m IN!

  • HelperMonkey May 7, 2019 (1:24 pm)

    Looks good – and looks like a great addition to WC.

    I’ve been thinking about these lately.  I had my first one before jury duty one day at their downtown site.  White Center is getting the good places now. 

  • m May 7, 2019 (3:35 pm)

    Love to see so many vegetarian options on the menu! Looking forward to this addition in our neighborhood. 

  • Yma May 7, 2019 (3:50 pm)

    Wish there was a better name. Seriously folks, could we lay off the expletives? Biscuit Bunny? 

    • donttreadonme May 7, 2019 (4:55 pm)

      You’re welcome to start your own business and call it whatever you like.

      • Kk May 7, 2019 (6:25 pm)

        I agree fully. Not every place will appeal to everyone. If you have nothing good to say say nothing or better open you own place and face those comments directed to you. Have been to the there a few times and have enjoyed 

    • flimflam May 7, 2019 (4:56 pm)

      yeah, i’m no prude but the name seems a bit much…

      • Dawsonct May 7, 2019 (5:50 pm)

        Yeah, it’s obviously going to ruin the business.

      • Azimuth May 7, 2019 (6:06 pm)

        It’s provocative, you wouldn’t understand.

    • WSMom May 7, 2019 (5:46 pm)

      No. I love the name and I want a shirt!

    • honey bunny May 7, 2019 (8:24 pm)

      I agree the name is a bit much, it’s not being a prude or thinking you are better than others. Jesus said it’s not what goes into your mouth that makes you filthy,  it’s what comes out.

      • DH May 8, 2019 (7:08 am)

        Which is completely unimportant to a lot of people, myself included. 

        • WS REZ May 8, 2019 (10:32 am)

          DH, agreed. If Jesus doesnt like it, he doesnt need to eat there.

    • Raised in WS May 7, 2019 (9:43 pm)

      Lmao alrighty then

    • WS REZ May 8, 2019 (10:31 am)

      got your attention though, didnt it? Job well done, biscuit bitch :-) 

  • Jim P. May 7, 2019 (4:18 pm)

    Rather unfortunate choice of store name and product names.  I do not think I could order these things out loud without feeling a right idiot   Pity, it sounds good.  Just not things I’d care to say as an adult.

  • Marianne May 7, 2019 (5:13 pm)

    No vegan options and an offensive name.

    • my two cents ... May 7, 2019 (5:58 pm)

      … no issues IMHO on the name. They do have gluten-free options. Assume that it was too difficult to have a similar consistency/quality with the non-plant based ingredients. 

  • momosmom May 7, 2019 (5:37 pm)

    You gotta admit a couple of the names made you laugh even if it was in silence for you prudes! 

  • RCS May 7, 2019 (5:49 pm)

    PRUUUUUUUUDES. It’s just a word. If you think avoiding the word makes a good person, then you need to reevaluate. Get over yourselves. I can’t wait to put their food in my face.

  • AJ May 7, 2019 (5:50 pm)

    Awesome news! I think they’ll be a great fit in WC. 

  • Case May 7, 2019 (5:52 pm)

    Hah, when it was Brass Knuckle Bistro people complained about that name too, something about too much testosterone or sounding violent.  Probably the same people complaining.

  • Dawsonct May 7, 2019 (5:52 pm)

    Looking forward to at least four fewer people in line in front of me.Welcome to WC, BB!

  • Dawsonct May 7, 2019 (6:01 pm)

    And to any of the uncomfortable/supercilious, I’ve never had any problems ordering a sandwich sans the ‘b’ word. Well, except for the bitchwich. Order something else.The vegetarian portobello gravy is outstanding. Not sure if it’s vegan, but this sausage gravy lovin’ omnivore highly recommends it.

    • AA May 9, 2019 (10:16 pm)

      They said they are going to try and create a vegan gravy at the new location:)

  • Dawsonct May 7, 2019 (6:03 pm)

    It IS a shame Case couldn’t make a go of it with BKB. Good on him for taking a go at it.

  • Blbl May 7, 2019 (6:37 pm)

    Oh, let go of your pearls and eat a biscuit, people. 

  • KM May 7, 2019 (6:51 pm)

    Love the Biscuit Bitch. Excited to have it close by!

  • Graciano May 7, 2019 (7:12 pm)

    What’s in the bag Bitch, It’s a Smokin’ hot Bitch. Bitch!
    I hope they open early, So I can grab some Bitchin’ baskets on the way to work.

  • John May 7, 2019 (7:51 pm)

    How exciting! There are so many wonderful food options now in White Center that we hardly ever go to the Junction any more. So great for our community!

  • PigeonRidge Ben May 8, 2019 (12:01 am)

    Not that I ever went into Brass Knuckle Bistro but I do find it less than ideal that White Center is becoming much like the rest of the city’s high streets with outpost of local chains. There’s still plenty of one of a kind shops, character and diversity but it’s trending away. 

    • AT May 8, 2019 (7:18 am)

      Better local chains than national or international ones?Every small business wants to grow, 4 stores in a city of a few million people is hardly over-saturation.  I’m excited for them and glad it’s not another bar.

  • The truth May 8, 2019 (12:42 am)

    Why did the businesses cross the road?  To get out of the city limits!

  • Dale May 8, 2019 (3:22 am)

    Low class name.  I’ll pass.  All this money pouring into Seattle in the last decade failed to purchase any class.Class……. yes, I am afraid most of you have no idea.   

  • WSB May 8, 2019 (7:24 am)

    For those who are fixated on the name … this is the only interview I could find with the owner explaining it. (Sorry for the autoplays and popups; corporate sites seem to be insistent on gunking themselves up with such “features”…)

  • Gebus May 8, 2019 (7:28 am)

    To all my Bitches: They are run by a woman who has an awesome empowering mission statement posted in their doorways have 3 other locations, been in business for years and are super yummy!

    Get the fauck over yourselves and eat a breakfast bitchwich. 

    So pumped they are coming to my hood!

    • ImNotSparticus May 8, 2019 (8:28 am)

      This bitch agrees! People complaining about the name are probably the same people who clutched their pearls about the “offensive” merch at NW Art and Frame. Won’t someone think of the chilllllldren??

  • momof3boys May 8, 2019 (10:24 am)

    But the name calling is so much better.Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I too find it unappealing, and I have the right to feel that way.  Why, oh why, must we resort to name calling when we disagree!Civility anyone?

    • JinWestwood May 8, 2019 (12:06 pm)

      Never saw any name calling 

      • biscuits yum May 9, 2019 (1:59 pm)

        I mean, I’m not sure how you missed the name calling?  A quick glance at other comments returns: prudes, pearl-clutching, bitches, & supercilious.  People are absolutely calling out others over being uncomfortable with the name.  That said, this is an internet forum, and this seems pretty light compared to what it could be…ps…… As for the name itself I have mixed feelings–I will still go to the store, but I do not look forward to conversations with my ever curious 4 year old about the name.  I know those conversations are coming, thick and heavy, any day now, but that doesn’t mean I look forward to them.  On the other hand, I fervently believe that words are only “bad” when they are used in a mean-spirited way, and recognize that I should have no problem with the Bitch in this name.    

  • Greystreet May 8, 2019 (11:11 am)

    This is so exciting! And I echo above, if you don’t like the name it means you won’t be in the line that will inevitably form to get some of their super tasty food and one less person means more bitchwitches for all! Seriously people, get over semantics already. “Sticks and stones will break my bones…” Welcome to Rat City Biscuit Bitch :)  Actually let’s use the word as much as possible to desensitize :)  

  • anonyme May 9, 2019 (5:59 am)

    Should we also use the “N” word as much as possible to “desensitize”?  What’s the difference?  If the name included a racial slur instead of a gender slur, would there still be accusations of “pearl clutching” (another gender insult)?  Words matter – at least to those who understand their meaning.  We’ll see whose tune changes when someone opens up The Paleo Prick. 

    • momosmom May 9, 2019 (11:29 am)

      Maybe the owner named her restaurant after her pregnant dog who loves to eat biscuits?

  • Gina May 9, 2019 (1:30 pm)

    Dick’s Drive in.

    • waikikigirl May 9, 2019 (3:46 pm)

      Yeah, yeah I don’t see anyone making a stink about Dick’s Drive in!!!    LOL!!!

  • momosmom May 9, 2019 (3:53 pm)

    What about all those Pho restaurants, no one makes a stink about them or do they?

    • WSB May 9, 2019 (5:07 pm)

      An even-better example might be What The Pho? et al.

  • anonyme May 12, 2019 (7:08 am)

    Dick’s is a nickname for someone named Richard.  Pho is a homophone for another word that is a general curse word.  Neither is a gender-specific pejorative.  Why is this so difficult for some of you to understand?  It’s not about profanity or word-play.  It’s about using words that are specifically used to harass and intimidate, whether sexually, racially or otherwise.  While I don’t believe in sheltering kids from profanity (or life in general) I would be hard-pressed as a parent to explain this name to my kids in a way that was honest while not justifying its use.  The total condemnation of racial slurs while sanctifying gender slurs is beyond hypocritical.  Women often tend to be their own worst enemies.

  • disappointed its BB May 14, 2019 (8:55 pm)

    With a name like “Biscuit Bitch” you at least need to come correct with the biscuits.   Their biscuits SUCK!!!  It’s not even that hard to make a good buttermilk biscuit.   Even Red Lobster has them beat.

Sorry, comment time is over.
