BIZNOTES: 3 Admiral food-and-drink updates

Thanks to everybody who’s been sending business updates in the wake of rule changes – we’re updating/creating lists – and we have some roundups too, including these three food/drink announcements from The Admiral District:

PIZZERIA 22 (4213 SW College): From proprietor Cary:

Pizzeria 22 is reopening tonight for business after a brief shutdown due to COVID-19. We are happy to report that all employees have tested negative for the virus. We will reopen tonight for business at 4 pm offering takeout, free delivery, and the last night of inside dining.

YEN WOR VILLAGE (2300 California SW): Received via text:

With so many positive cases in and around West Seattle, we have decided to close for the next 2 weeks out of concern for our own safety and to help prevent spread in our community. We hope everybody has a safe holiday and we hope to see you again when we reopen in early December for takeout and delivery.

FRESHY’S (2735 California SW): From proprietor Amber, with word of what’s in the works:

We will definitely be open for takeout 7 am-7 pm. We have online ordering through square and The Joe app. My staff and I are currently working on making bulk (or family-style) homemade soups for delivery, and putting together a system for customers to be able to order a daily, weekly, or monthly subscription for a variety of soups (like the farmer’s drop boxes of vegetables/fruit) that are different each time and will accommodate to dietary needs or restrictions for that customer. We will deliver (or they can pick up) ready-to- go soups or packages of soup that can be frozen and heated up when ready. We are also looking into putting together cold brew growlers as well as curbside pickup for a variety of coffee orders. With a great fall/winter season upon us, we are super stoked to provide hot, healthy, and delicious soup/sandwiches for the community.

Got biz info? westseattleblog@gmail.com is the best way to get it to us – thanks!

    I am surprised to see many of the local restaurants posting to come on in for the last day of indoor seating. I understand the extra income is helpful but with all the new positive cases and closures in West Seattle restaurants last week it seems like the wrong message. Pizzeria 22 just had a Covid closure but they want people back in for one night?

    • Kim November 17, 2020 (1:17 pm)

      Exactly my thinking.  Like, seriously?  They’d do better for the community by offering takeout only.

      My thought exactly!  Who would even want to chance it?

    Amber’s soups are the best! How do we get notified when the soup subscription is live? Yum!!

    I’m looking at the Freshy’s site and can’t find an online ordering link but am interested in ordering soup regularly! Hopefully they provide a link on their website. Maybe I’m missing it because I’m on a phone.

    Thanks WSB for posting this!  Everyone knows that I am terrible with computers etc.  To add salt to my wounds, my domain was sold and so I had to set up a new one (long story, but definitely a result from my lack of technological interest:). It is now freshycafe.com  I have a great tech savvy employee that is working on streamlining the online ordering.  This will hopefully be finished by the end of this week.  We are figuring out pricing and packaging and possible delivery options.  You can always email me (I have an employee that checks it regularly:) at freshys@yahoo.com to inquire as well.  So stay tuned… thanks again WSB for helping us small folks get the word out!

      Great to hear, Amber! You are a master at soup making. Looking forward to a soup subscription. Love your proactive plan to keep your business going. Will go check out the online ordering. Take care!

    I’m sad it took a pandemic but I am super excited to live my dream of a Freshy’s soup subscription! Thanks Amber and co!

    The marquee on the Admiral Theater reads a brief “intermission”. I hope that everyone is safe & it’s a proactive move on their part.

      Duh. Never mind that post. Sorry…
