Josh Henderson (Skillet Diner) launched Westward in a former waterfront catering facility (with dock!) in July on the north end of Lake Union (halfway between Gasworks and Ivar’s). Westward’s menu is seafood-centric, with crab (in a gratin with cavatelli and béchamel, and in a crazy-sounding Reuben with kombu sauerkraut), oysters (on the half shell or baked with creamy lentils and lardo), peel-and-eat spot prawns and much more, all to be eaten on a newly built deck with knockout views of the city skyline. In the basement, there’ll be Little Gull Grocery, with beer, wine and deli-type foods to-go, plus a small oyster bar.
