Unicorn now open for lunch, soon to serve brunch

Starting Monday, Unicorn will open at noon for lunch. Unicorn’s co-owner Adam Heimstadt tells CHS that they also plan to institute a weekend brunch soon and are hard at work perfecting a corn dog with french fries built into it.  Other new menu items include a corn dog madame. Oh yeah, and there’s more taxidermy.  The specimen at left, Leonard, is but one of two additions – send us a photo of the other new addition and we’ll update this post.

  1. the whole French meets circus thing is a bit odd. In fact, I am quite sure the corndog madame thing is definitely not something to be found at a French circus. I had one of their corndogs and it was quite good, but I think I will head down the street for a nice croque madame from Café Presse if I need my cheese and egg fix.

  2. Any business that has stuffed dead animals in it, I will not patronize. Thanks for the heads up as now I won’t waste my time.

  3. And I could care less what you think – but it’s a reply to a blog and I get to state my opinion. So you can suck it. Have a nice day!

  4. Places with dead animals on the wall won’t get my business either. I’ll be really glad when the taxidermy trend dies, even happier if the scruffy facial hair and sack-suffocating skinny jeans go away with it.

  5. Belltown has a lower skinny jeans/scruffy hair per capita ratio. They’d love to have you there. Don’t forget your little black dress and “I’m sooooo cold” tagline!

  6. If they had any real creativity, instead of glorifying the murder of wild animals they could have created some fantastical unicorns and other mythical creatures and no animals would have had to die. Or they could mounted some magnificently creepy Staghead Ferns that would not only look cool but also improve the indoor air quality. In the spirit of hipster irony they could have mounted “antlers” that look like GMO carrots gone wild or wax busts of ringmasters. I guess that’s too much to expect from guys who spend all their time coiffing their facial pubes and have yet to realize what most women know when they see a dud(e) in skinny jeans… that only tiny parts fit into tiny pants.

  7. Yeah – hate the screwy tight jeans look – “we are the chicken leg generation” and dead animal heads just make me sad.

    Where the hell did that trend come from? Repressed killer urges? Please tell the bimbos at the not so funny joint that Unicorns were friends with all the other magical animals now dead and stuffed on their walls. Defaming Unicorns and friends is not good karma.

    Used to see them – stuffed heads – around at flea markets, etc. – with no buyers. Now they use them to decorate. Yuk.

    Back to the honest and cheap Taco place on Pine.

  8. Old taxidermy involvles highly toxic chemicals like arsenic. I would not go to a place that served food amidst the dusty toxins raining down on me.

  9. there is a lot of hatred on this blog for skinny jean-ed individuals. people have been wearing skinny jeans for decades. i don’t think they are worn necessarily to make a statement, or that 100% of skinny jean wearers are automatically deserving of scorn. i think skinny jeans look attractive on some guys and gals and if you’re skinny, then your jeans are probably going to look…well, skinny on your skinny chicken legs. be proud of your body not matter what size you are and don’t let overly judgmental haters bring you down!

    mike with curls – i have been reading this blog for a year and find that most everyone that contributes has something of value to communicate, even though they may not always agree with one another. your consistent language of hate is very disturbing. your comments are cheap and usually un-related to the topic at hand. to think that you are a member of this community makes me sad. think before you speak. if you operate your life and thoughts via a language of hate and animosity, then by all means go ahead if that gives you peace in your inner world. you are clearly one unhappy person. i hope that you can travel out into the world more to gain a larger perspective than oneself and think twice about the comments you post on this blog – no one else on this blog is consistently more trivial than you. good luck. and no, i will not be reading your response. your words mean nothing.

  10. Hate – when commenting on fashion? Your language is over the top.

    You are the one in a bubble. Lighten up a bit.

    Get out a bit more, you say. I have traveled in twenty countries, passport at the ready.

    I guess I am not supposed to say the skinny guys with chicken legs should not make themselves look even worse? So, sorry if I hurt your feelings. Not intended to be personal.

  11. Tell me, how do you feel about dead animal heads as decor in several C. Hill eateries, symbols of killing for sport, full of crappy toxins, any comments? All OK with that?

    Of course I understand we might not agree. I have an opinion, firm and to the point. I detest them. Period.

    And will never eat in such a place, ever.


  12. “In fact, I am quite sure the corndog madame thing is definitely not something to be found at a French circus”

    Next thing you’ll tell me that the Moulan Rouge movie was not a documentary.


  13. “Tell me, how do you feel about dead animal heads as decor in several C. Hill eateries, symbols of killing for sport, full of crappy toxins, any comments? All OK with that?”

    God, you’re so full of crap. “Toxins” is used by people who don’t like a particular thing but have no actual scientific arguments against it.

    It’s a catch-all bogeyman for the bastyr non-medical set.

  14. Arsenic Trioxide and Dichlorvos are common toxic preservatives used in taxidermy.

    Arsenic trioxide can be absorbed through the skin. It works by disrupting the generation of Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) during metabolic function, effectively preventing the body from turning food and nutrients into chemical energy, which is especially dangerous for people with hyperglycemia.

    Dichlorvos is highly toxic by inhalation, dermal absorption, and ingestion. Because dichlorvos is volatile, inhalation is the most common route of exposure. As with all organophosphates, dichlorvos is readily absorbed through the skin. Acute illness from dichlorvos is limited to the effects of cholinesterase inhibition.

    According to the article “Arsenic in Natural History Collections,” published in Leather Conservation News 2 (2), 1986 by Catherine A. Hawks and Stephen L. Williams, “…The use of contact poisons, coupled with dust production from aging mounts, may lead to contamination of nearby shelves and floors…”

    Do you like arsenic in your meal?
