Moving past Paseo, Bok a Bok landing next to Neumos with Korean-style deep fried chicken

Neumos has a rocking new partner to provide chow in its adjacent restaurant space and to provide spicy accompaniment to the cold brew and cocktails it serves at its sibling bar The Runaway and inside the live music venue itself.

White Center born Bok a Bok Chicken will bring its Korean-style deep fried drumsticks and more to the small space on 10th sandwiched between the club and The Runaway bar.

“I’m amped to be opening Bok a Bok on Capitol Hill,” chef-owner Brian O’Connor says in the announcement of the new project. “We’ve spent a great deal of time honing our fried chicken skills down south and are looking forward to our new neighbors trying it out.”

Bok a Bok’s recipe will bring new flavors to Capitol Hill’s nosh scene:

Bok A Bok’s menu centers around Korean-style fried chicken, with a crispier take on the traditional batter sealing in the juicy, natural flavors from fresh, sustainably-raised chickens. Inspired by O’Connor’s travels throughout Asia, his unique spin on fried chicken sets the restaurant apart from others in the Pacific Northwest. Guests can pair fried chicken breast; drumsticks, thighs and wings with a selection of house made dipping sauces ranging from sweet to spicy. The menu also features rice bowls, fried chicken sandwiches, and comfort-inspired sides including kimchi, ginger coleslaw, mac n’ cheese and house-made biscuits.

The project replaces the much-hyped but apparently underwhelming arrival of the Paseo chain on Capitol Hill. Ryan Santwire purchased the rights to the Paseo name and its original Fremont location before expanding with Paseo Capitol Hill. The 10th and Pike Paseo debuted in February earlier this year in the space left empty when Pike Street Fish Fry closed in late 2015. Despite the hype, the restaurant lasted about nine months and quietly closed recently. We have a message out to Santwire to learn more about the closure and will update if we hear back. UPDATE: Paseo is searching for a new Hill home, Santwire tells CHS. “We are moving, as we need more room and want/need to do alcohol in our space,” he writes. The goal is to find a place that can accommodate a full Paseo Cantina with room to also fill the needs of the company’s catering business.

Bok a Bok is set to open December 1st.

Bok a Bok will be located at 925 E Pike with an entrance on 10th Ave. You can learn more at facebook.com/bokabokfriedchicken.

Good Friday Service @ Grace Seattle

On Good Friday, the church in somber remembrance celebrates the trial, crucifixion, and death of Jesus on the cross. For followers of Jesus, Good Friday isn’t just a commemoration of a historical event. Rather, it is remembrance, even a reveling in Jesus’ sacrificial life and death on our behalf. In it, we remember that our King gave himself for our benefit; we remember that the scorn, mockery, pain, suffering, and grotesque death that we deserved because of our sins was taken upon the life of King Jesus instead.

All are invited to celebrate this special service with us. Kids activities will be available for children 6 months to 3 years.

First look: the new Neumos and The Runaway

Some 25 years after its birth as Moe’s Mo’Roc’N Café in an old Salvation Army at the corner of 10th and Pike, Neumos showed off the results of its 2017 overhaul with a party Wednesday night.

There is an upgraded sound system and new lighting to keep the club rocking. There is a new life for the old Moe Bar next door. And there are smaller changes — yes, the bathrooms have been redone — and new details like a plaque to honor longtime friend of the club, Jon “Gash” Sanders, who died in 2016 and is remembered as the “Pope of Capitol Hill.”

“Our new sound system will blow you away and possibly is the best in the city,” Neumos talent buyer Steven Severin said in a message to friends about the reopening. Continue reading
