From I-5 Shores to Alki, Julian Hagood making plans for Harry’s Beach House

It’s not exactly beach weather but Julian Hagood, the owner and chef behind Capitol Hill’s Harry’s Fine Foods, is already thinking about summer.

Plans for Harry’s Beach House are in motion to transform a former Tully’s Coffee across from West Seattle’s Alki Beach into a new food and drink destination shaped by Hagood.

Think Harry’s at the beach, Hagood says. “The spot will have a significantly larger kitchen to provide a bit more variety,” he writes. “Same killer brunches and seasonally driven fare that caters to locals and visitors alike.”

The West Seattle Blog first dug up the beach-y scoop earlier this week.

Plans are still in the earliest permitting stages. Other details about the Harry’s expansion are still to come — including whether the new place will also have a Chandelierium. Hagood has also called the apartment above Harry’s Fine Foods home. No word on if he’ll now have a place to stay at the beach.

In addition to coverage from two most excellent local blogs, Hagood’s new venture will again pair him with Seattle commercial real estate wheeler dealer Laura Miller. Miller’s purchase of a Capitol Hill bodega at the corner of Bellevue and Mercer was the start of the transformation of the old Harry’s into the new joint that debuted in I-5 Shores in late 2010. “It’s casual, produce-driven. We’re not reinventing anything. It’s delicious really well-made food,” the first-time restauranteur Hagood said at the time.

This time around, a company owned by a partnership including Miller purchased the former coffee shop for $1.5 million late last year.

Harry’s Beach House will be located at 2676 Alki Avenue SW. You can learn watch for details at harrysfinefoods.com.
