Skillet founder Josh Henderson has his hands full. In addition to a forthcoming burger spot in Woodinville, Henderson is opening new full-service eatery Westward and neighboring market/oyster bar Little Gull Grocery on north Lake Union. Eater reports that former Madison Park Conservatory chef Zoi Antonitsas will lead Westward's kitchen. The menu includes imaginative seafood-centric fare, including picnic baskets filled with oysters, clam dip and snapper ceviche. Boats will be able to access the more than 150 feet of dock space. Westward and Little Gull are set to open in early summer. Is it really only February?
Across the lake, Matt's Rotisserie and Oyster Lounge at 16551 NE 74th St. in the Redmond Town Center is celebrating its tenth year of business tomorrow night. Free appetizers, cake and drinks will be served from 8 to 11 p.m.
