From Seattle chef Renee Erickson (of the sadly departed Boat Street Cafe, my favorite in the city), a trifecta of new restaurants on the hip (and busy) Pike/Pine corridor in the Capitol Hill neighborhood.
Each restaurant has its own storefront, but the three are connected internally throughout 5,700 square feet of space. General Porpoise gets an early start serving filled doughnuts and locally roasted coffee, then hands its kitchen over to nouveau steakhouse Bateau. Connected by a small walkway, Bar Melusine serves Brittany-inspired seafood from a separate kitchen space. The interiors were brought to life by designer Price Erickson and Heliotrope Architects, members of the Remodelista Architect/Designer Directory. Let’s take a look.
