It’s grey and drizzly outside — finally a typical start to summer in Seattle. It’s a good time to keep on top of things like ice cream — quick reminder that you can score a free cone today at Old School Custard’s grand opening from 3 to 10 PM — and outdoor seating.
We recently posted about yet another sidewalk cafe being planned on the Hill and the new public comment process to provide your feedback on applications. Including the first two written about earlier on CHS, we’ve found four sidewalk patios being planned on the Hill:
- Meza Latin Fare on 14th
- Anchovies & Olives
- This guy told us about Kingfish Cafe’s planned sidewalk addition. He was correct. You might recall that several trees had to be removed from 19th Ave near the restaurant last summer because they were damaging the sidewalks. One byproduct of that work was more room in front of the Kingfish. Looks like they are going to put it to use.
- Grey Gallery, turns out, has also joined the sidewalk seating club.
Both the Grey and the Kingfish applications’ public comment period ended on May 31 — we’ll try to be on top of any more applications earlier now that we know what to look for on the Department of Planning and Development site.
CHS sponsor Poco Wine Room also added outdoor seating recently but it’s off-sidewalk and not subject to the same permitting process.
