Building History

The tandem of chef Shannon Galusha and managing partner Erik Lindstrom opened this restaurant that contained a dining room seating 50, and a bar accommodating 45. Opening night was 11/11/2005. Galusha had worked previously at Seattle's 727 Pine, and the French Laundry restaurants. (See Nancy Leson, Seattle "Taste of the Town: New restaurants, upscale billiards and an Irish pub," published 10/25/2006, accessed 09/25/2017.) He would later work at Cal’s Classic American restaurant at Kent Station, Kent, WA, c. 2011.
