The team behind one of our favorite food trucks, Marination Mobile, will open a second brick-and-mortar location. Named Marination ma kai (after a Hawaiian phrase that roughly translates to "near the sea"), the restaurant will be located on Alki's beachfront.
Open 6am-10pm daily, the new location will serve Marination's already popular Hawaiian-Korean fare for lunch and dinner, in addition to "island breakfast staples" and some new items (Hawaiian shave ice!).
Marination ma kai also boasts a full bar and a beer list curated by Cicerone (that's a sommelier for beers) Robyn Schumacher (pictured here; hopefully they let her out of that fenced, Cicerone paddock sometimes). Among the beers will be an exclusive brew by local Big Al Brewing.
The press release indicates the restaurant will open at the "end of the summer." Twitter rumors suggest September 29.
