This week's top hits from Eater Seattle, Curbed's sibling bar, restaurant and nightlife blog...
CAPITOL HILL—Getting a table at Prohibition-themed bar Knee High Stocking Co. can be a challenge, between the text-only reservation system, nondescript entrance and the fact that the tiny spot is always crowded. Reservationist Nikki Worley talked to Eater about what's up with the text messages, and what it takes to get inside.
FREMONT/PHINNEY RIDGE—Capitol Hill ice creamery Bluebird is opening two new "microcreamery" locations, one right on Fremont's main drag. The second location, at 74th and Greenwood Avenue, will share a back patio with its neighbors, Caffe Vita and a forthcoming pizza shop. The Phinney outpost will also do some brewing, both of fancy sodas and actual ale for use in beer floats and good old fashioned drinking.
MAGNOLIA—The owners of Wild Salmon Seafood Market has granted the Highliner Tavern a new, and decidedly classier, life. The Fisherman's Terminal bar shuttered earlier this year, but the new owners are making the place less divey, upgrading the burgers and adding more wild-caught seafood menu items. Henceforth it shall be known as the Highliner Pub & Grill at Fisherman's Terminal.
