This week's top hits from Eater Seattle, Curbed's sibling bar, restaurant and nightlife blog...
DOWNTOWN—The giant, mega, enormous news of the week is the opening of RN74 Seattle. It's a spinoff of the San Francisco original from chef Michael Mina (an Ellensburg native, by the way). The wine-focused restaurant gets its name from a major highway that runs through France's Burgundy region, and the food has both French and Northwest influences. It's not every day a restaurateur with Mina's reputation lands in Seattle, and the restaurant has all sorts of cool features.
CAPITOL HILL—Yet another restaurant is going in at 14th and Union. Lucky 8 will offer cocktails, Chinese food and even delivery, in the building that also houses new craft distillery Oola. It's right across the street from Skillet Diner and Marjorie; this compact block is becoming its own little dining district.
MEALS ON WHEELS—Creole food truck Where Ya At makes its rounds to neighborhoods including Interbay, Georgetown, Queen Anne, SoDo and more. Owner Matthew Lewis shares some insights from his first year in business, including what he tweaked and who talks smack on social media.
