El Mariachi opens shop front, Sol Food closes, Scuttlebutt adds delicious menu

SNOHOMISH COUNTY – Stay up-to-date with local restaurant, brewery and food truck happenings with this week’s Nuggets. Read on for a quick overview of openings, closings, extensions, and more. As usual: Prepare for hunger (and thirst).

Mariachi beria and tacos to unlock bricks and mortar

The good news: El Mariachi has opened a small sit-down restaurant at 6100 Evergreen Way in Everett (opposite Janbo Café). They plan to open in August.

“We are working hard to make this place the most special place,” the owners announced in June on Facebook.

The sweet and sour news: The mariachi are shutting down their food trailer in September. Owners wrote: “We have to say goodbye to our trailer, but greater things are coming.” This means you won’t be chasing El Mariachi in a random parking lot or at a music festival for tacos, birria ramen, quesadillas, burritos, or tortas.

This isn’t a bad trade-off when you think they’ll have a permanent spot with extra menu items, brunch days, and, as the owners said, “tacos every day!”

Sol Food is closed after rebranding

After 12 years of service to the Everett community, the Sol Food family permanently closed their doors in early June. The Latin American restaurant changed its brand from Sol Food Bar & Grill to Sol Food Express earlier this year, switching to takeout and quick service. Focus on tacos, fresh ingredients, and vegan and gluten-free options. The new concept opened in February, in a space shared with Black Lab Gallery & Bar in downtown Everett.

The owners posted on Facebook, “To all the Sol family, over the years, thank you, and we really couldn’t have had this amazing adventure without you.” “To our loyal and steadfast customers, thank you! To Downtown Everett, thank you for making us feel so welcome for the past 12 years!”

Fans expressed their sadness and gratitude on the Facebook post, with one person commenting, “As a man born and raised in Everett, Seol will always be a part of my soul!”

Now in the Taproom Scuttlebutt: Salami

Get ready to dine in the Taproom at Scuttlebutt Brewery: The Everett brewery at 3314 Cedar St. Just added “a selection of food options like our beer” from Salumi Deli. The Seattle-based deli is a 20-plus-year veteran of the home-cured meat business. This means you can enjoy delicious high-quality sandwiches (we’re particularly amazed by the mafu pancakes, with hot salami sopressata, mortadella, provolone cheese, garlic, and olive tapenade on a crunchy Italian loaf) and charcuterie boards, all with a Scuttlebutt IPA or pilsner on hand. .

Famous dev closes

Everett’s popular Dave’s Bar-B-Que is permanently closed. A spokesperson for the national chain confirmed that the location at 1206 SE Everett Mall Way closed on June 1. “We really appreciate all the support we’ve received over the years from the Everett community,” the spokesperson added. The other four popular Dive locations in Washington (Seattle, Tacoma, Tukwila and Yakima) appear to be open, according to the company’s website.

Grapes and grains – now grinding

The Grape & Grain has made a beverage trifecta in the Pacific Northwest: Everett wine and beer shop adds coffee service to its store in Evergreen Way. The final step will help The Grape & Grain’ create a destination for customers looking to find quality coffee, handcrafted beers, and the best wines from producers around the world while providing a local experience featuring breweries, wine producers and roasters from the Pacific Northwest. ,” according to a press release.

Owners Eric and Krista Brown have converted part of their shop into a café, which will open on weekdays at 7am and weekends at 9am. They also have freshly baked goods from the Shu Shu Bakery in Everett. It’s never a bad day when you can sip on lattes and pastries while browsing the local beer and wine. Come back later for a pint and live music.

The Grape & Grain is located at 6502 Evergreen Way Suite A in Everett.

Bayside Café Moves

Everett’s newest vegan burger joint moves to bigger pastures: Bayside Cafe near Hewitt Avenue will move to 3001 Broadway (formerly Tang Wong and formerly Double China Doll). The new restaurant will provide the owners with a better functioning kitchen, and will provide visitors with a full-size restaurant and lounge. The old Bayside site remains at 1717 Hewitt Ave. Open, although there are limited hours so the owners can spend more time getting their new restaurant ready.

Expect an announcement about opening soon: The owners have said “either next weekend or next,” so we’re sure you’ll be enjoying pork-free barbecue sandwiches, bacon burgers and more at their new location by the end of June/early July . For now, stop by Hewitt’s spot on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

Next Brewery Takes Over Cask & Trotter

It looks like a new brewery will take over the old Cask & Trotter restaurant in Lynnwood (the Cask & Trotter location in Seattle also closed earlier this year.) Peace of Mind Brewing is the brainchild of father-son duo and an official member of the Brewers Association. We hope to try the hibiscus flower and rose petal, Power IPA flower, with cloves, lemon, jasmine and other refreshing drinks at their next location later this summer.

San Diego Restaurant Begins National Expansion in Mill Creek

The Rare Society, Southern California “In Honor of the Famous Las Vegas Restaurant,” is coming to our neck in Washington. Chef Brad Wise is taking the classic, accessible steakhouse concept to Mill Creek, with a new restaurant set to open this winter.

“We are a neighborhood restaurant group that seeks to build communities around our locations,” a spokesperson for the Rare Society told The Herald. “Opening in Mill Creek is an opportunity to be part of a thriving community and to provide a fine dining experience within the city limits.”

Mill Creek’s menu at the Rare Society will be similar to Solana Beach’s (think chef-chosen cut boards, Australian wagyu tr-tip, 35-day bone-dry ribeye, ahi tuna au poivre, and raised sides of steak). Some dishes will be changed to highlight Washington’s bounty.

Stay tuned for meat updates later this year, and for more information on the Rare Society, go to raresociety.com.
