Seattle’s most anticipated restaurant openings, fall 2023

Seattle’s most anticipated restaurant openings, fall 2023

As everyone knows, Seattle only has two seasons, wet and dry. Many Seattle residents enjoy dry days – sunny weather perfect for hiking, and mountains back on the horizon like old friends. But wet days have their pleasures, too. It’s time to hunker down, don the hoodies, and zip up the quarter zip fleece zips along the way. IPA weather, soup weather, a cup of soup or warm coffee in your hand. These humid days, which will be on top of us before we know it, are the comfortable days.

This is a preview of a cozy little fall restaurant. The cafes, restaurants, and bakeries on this list are more familiar than flagship models. It’s expansions, revivals, and in one case a pop-up that finds a much-deserved permanent home. Perhaps this reflects the fact that the restaurant industry is difficult for newcomers to break into at present. But it’s not like these places are safe either. They have ambitions to be community centers, to bring new flavors to the city, to be places that come from the wet, and are welcomed.


This is a new restaurant from Sarah and Johnny Courtney, former Executive Chef at… Canless; He will occupy the converted home in Wallingford that was home to innovative organic restaurant Tilth. But we are not here to read Attuma’s biography. Our excitement about this comes from tasting Kourtney’s food at his pop-up this year. His dishes highlight seasonal ingredients, but in new ways – we’re still thinking of the delicious rose cake with cheese, garlic powder and spring onions we had back in May. Unlike pop-ups, bricks-and-mortars will have an à la carte menu. (For the indecisive, there will be a tasting menu option, too.) The first wave of reservations will be released on Oct. 20 at noon, and likely quickly depending on how popular those pop-ups are.

After some delays, Renee Erickson’s Sea Creatures is set to open its new restaurant this fall in the Shared Roof building that’s also home to Ben’s Bread, Doe Bay Wine Company and Holy Mountain Brewing’s taproom. It will be an Italian wine bar serving small plates and shared meats (and oysters, of course). The small plates at other Ericsson restaurants such as Walrus, Carpenter and Willmott’s Ghost are worth a repeat visit, and we’re sure the same goes for Lioness.

The new restaurant from Melissa Miranda of Musang, one of Seattle’s true star chefs, does not deceive. He will specialize in bulalo, a soup made with braised beef and bones until the marrow melts in the broth, and pancit, a dish of noodles and vegetables. Kilig – named after a Tagalog word for feeling elated by a transcendent or romantic experience – will be more casual than Musang and is set to open soon.

BCNW has since opened a location on the campus of North Seattle College, but this new coffee shop in the heart of the historic Black Central District will begin a new chapter for the business, which serves coffee but also offers youth programs and other nonprofit businesses.
