Now Open: Wandering Goose on Capitol Hill and Ha! in Fremont
By Seattle Mag October 1, 2012
The Southern restaurant from Heather Earnhardt we’ve been anticipating since spring (read more here) is finally, finally open. And what a tasty-looking menu! We can’t wait to get our hands on an Auntie Annie biscuit sandwich with fried chicken, bread & butter pickles, mustard and honey ($7.50). There’s also a goose salad with local greens and smoked tomato vinaigrette ($9.50) that sounds intriguing; I love me some goose meat. Vegetarians or Meatless Mondayers can dig into the thoughtfully designed veggie plate, with pimento mac & cheese, Sea Island peas, collard greens and a buttermilk biscuit ($12.00).
The other opening of the day is Ha!, a Mexican-American, open-all-day venture in the old Hunger space on the hill in Fremont. The name is a reference to a woman’s laugh, and we’d tell you more but it looks like a website is still forthcoming.
On imminent-opening watch: Matthew Lewis’s Roux, which was gonna open in September…but now it’s October. We’re betting/hoping it’ll open very soon.
