Here’s Your First Look at the Menu for Brunswick & Hunt, Opening in Ballard May 22
After announcing their plans to open a “farm to neighborhood” restaurant in Ballard last September, the team behind Brunswick & Hunt has announced an opening date: Thursday, May 22. Doors open at 4 p.m.
Not to be confused with nearby Brimmer & Heeltap, Brunswick & Hunt (1480 NW 70th St.) will join the block already home to Delancey, Essex, Honoré and The Fat Hen. Longtime Seattle restauranteurs and brothers, Barry Rogel (DeLuxe Bar & Grill) and Scott Rogel (Athenian) are behind the project.
B&H will be a 49-seat restaurant, with a massive (and historic) back bar that was manufactured by the Brunswick-Balke-Collender Co., and a mural called “The Hunt”—both found at a tavern in Winlock, WA.
Cocktails, eight rotating taps, and a Northwest-focused wine list will no doubt also be a popular draw here, helping to solidify it as a neighborhood gathering place.
Chef Jeffrey Davidson, formerly of Ray's, Vios at Third Place, and Bastille, has come up with a menu that he calls "truly Seattle,” (local produce, nose-to-tail cooking, and small farm sustainable proteins). See for yourself:
Brunswick & Hunt will be open Wednesday-Sunday, 4 p.m. to midnight(ish), with brunch rolling out sometime in June. The goal is to be open daily starting in June as well.
