Washington restaurants and taprooms continue to sprout up around the state
written by Sheila G. Miller
Walla Walla’s restaurant scene is growing, with a new brewery and steakhouse slated to open in Fall 2018. Fire and Vine, a partnership between El Gaucho Hospitality and chef Jason Wilson, is opening the Walla Walla Steak Co. and Crossbuck Brewing inside an old train depot.
Jack’s BBQ, a beloved Texas-style barbecue joint in Seattle, is opening a second location. The new restaurant will offer a full menu at Ninth and Thomas in South Lake Union and is expected to open this summer.
Woodinville-based Locust Cider is opening a new taproom. The hotspot on Sixth Avenue will offer twelve ciders on tap and will also have its own varieties on site that aren’t available anywhere else. The Tacoma location is the fourth for Locust—it opened a taproom in the Ballard neighborhood in Seattle and is also in the midst of opening a taproom in Fort Worth, Texas.
