Thank You

We’re always looking to make The Infatuation the best platform to find restaurants, and we appreciate your feedback!

Hi Infatuation reader. With restaurants around the country reopening, we understand that socializing in any form might still feel strange, and poses risks too. Should you go out to eat? That’s up to you. But we’ll continue to keep you informed as best we can. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email us at community@theinfatuation.com.


The Weekly Seattle Restaurant Update


The Weekly Seattle Restaurant Update

Updated July 10th, 2020

If you want to stay on top of what’s happening with Seattle restaurants and bars right now, you’ve come to the right place. Every week, we’ll be keeping track of the latest openings, reopenings, takeout specials, and other exciting or noteworthy updates around the city.

After months of being closed, Seattle restaurants have been allowed to reopen. Check out Seattle Restaurants That Have Reopened, So Far for up-to-date info, along with our FAQ guide about what to expect when dining out in Seattle.

And for the full list of 100+ restaurants offering new and unique takeout specials organized by neighborhood, check out our guide here. And if you have any tips or questions, send us an email at seattle@theinfatuation.com.


  • Canon has reopened as a Take-Out Emporium and Mercantile, serving to-go orders of bottled cocktails and food like seafood rolls and burgers. For more information, click here.

  • Canlis continues to be the ultimate shapeshifter since closing their dining room in March. With their newest project, they’re dumping sand onto their massive parking lot to make way for The Canlis Crab Shack. For $59.95 per person, you’ll receive a family-style seafood meal with homemade potato chips and smoked salmon dip, a whole Dungeness crab, roasted corn, heirloom tomato carpaccio, parker house rolls, and a berry galette. Tickets to book a table in advance go on sale on Friday, July 10th at 1pm.

  • Speaking of seafood, Ethan Stowell Restaurants has their focus on shellfish as well. Pinchy Bois, which is their aptly-named weekend pop-up operating out of where Bramling Cross used to be in Ballard, will be selling lobster in whole and roll form. That’s along with old bay french fries and drinks like wine, beer, and frozen watermelon margaritas. Meals are available for takeout or you can dine at a couple patio tables they’ve set up. Place your preorder here.

  • Addo has expanded their pantry program, selling Puerto Rican staples like sazón, adobo, and sofrito, along with beans, rice, and more. Place your order here and get 5% off your entire purchase if you use the code below.

  • Later this month, The Whale Wins will reopen as a casual counter-service spot. They’ll be open from 8am-8pm serving food for dine-in, takeout, and delivery, as well as espresso, CSA boxes, grocery items, and bottles of wine. If you’re feeling nostalgic and want to eat at the restaurant before the transformation happens, you can make a reservation here.

  • Some of the best ice cream in town, which happens to be vegan and gluten-free, is now available in the University District. Frankie & Jo’s U Village location is officially open as of Saturday, July 11th. Check out their website for more information.

  • As of Tuesday, July 7th, the “No Mask, No Service” mandate becomes official. Businesses, including restaurants and bars, are now required to refuse service to anyone not wearing a face covering. For more information, check out this extremely detailed government document.

  • Left Bank, our favorite spot for natural wine, now has online ordering. Plus, for the first time ever, local delivery is available for any purchase, not just their Friday night wine club. Check out what’s available here.

  • There have been recent Coronavirus outbreaks among employees at Duke’s Seafood on Alki Beach & Grillbird Teriyaki in West Seattle. Both have temporarily closed until further notice.

  • Closings: Cuoco, Brave Horse Tavern, Zheng Cafe, Bamboo Garden


  • On July 1st, Ciudad, a great Meditteranean spot that specializes in grilled meats, will be opening their outdoor courtyard for dine-in seating. Head to their Instagram for more information and to check out their 4th of July specials.

  • Ethan Stowell Restaurants have started opening their patios for dine-in service also. Outdoor seating is now available at Red Cow, Tavolàta Capitol Hill, and Frēlard Pizza Company.

  • Buddha Bruddah, one of our favorite spots for a plate lunch, is now operating as a BBQ in their parking lot. They’ll be grilling some of their menu items to-order like guava chicken and Hawaiian beef.


  • Westward is back. This summer staple was sold to the Sea Creatures team in 2018, and after renovating the Lake Union space, their incredible waterfront patio is open for reservation-only dining with a brand new menu. Head to their Instagram to stay updated on hours and other information.

  • If you’ve run out of ways to make watching a movie on your couch more exciting, watch one in your car instead. Canlis has transformed their parking lot into a drive-in theater, serving burgers, fries, ice cream sandwiches, and popcorn. Tickets are $50 (which doesn’t include food or drinks) and all of the ticket proceeds support the Black Farmers Collective. They’re currently sold out, but you can try your luck by joining their waitlist.

  • Bottlehouse has opened up a “Summer Of Rosé‎ Market” this weekend (June 27th and 28th). There are over 30 different bottles of rosé to choose from, and you even get a taste of their frosé‎ while you look around. Reservations are required to shop, and you can make one by calling 206-708-7164. Plus, their patio is also now open, and they’re doing a burger pop-up every Friday from 3-9pm.

  • Our favorite dish of 2019 has returned - Lady Jaye is once again serving the fried bologna sandwich that made us say, “If you time-traveled and brought this sandwich for lunch in elementary school, all of the other schoolchildren would be pooling their Dunkaroos and Gushers together to try and trade you.” Also, they’ve unveiled a brand new patio space that’s open for dine-in service.

  • You can now order one of Bar Del Corso’s delicious blistered margherita pies again, as they were serving a condensed version of their menu (without pizza) since March. Their back patio is also now open for reservation-only dining. Head to their website for more information.

  • Greatest Hit and oyster specialists The Walrus And The Carpenter has reopened for dine-in service.

  • Plenty of restaurants, bakeries, and breweries around Seattle are offering specials to celebrate Pride. Check them out here.

  • Closings: After 40 years of pouring and serving beer (plus some cheesy bread that was particularly satisfying after a few pints), Bill’s Off Broadway has permanently closed.
