Tangletown's Eva Is Shuttering; Starbucks CEO Schultz Backs Meal-Planning Start-Up

Welcome to CascadiaWire, a weekly collection of restaurant news from up-and-down the Pacific Northwest corridor.


TANGLETOWN -- You have less than two weeks to eat at Eva, the venerable restaurant in Tangletown near Green Lake; the 14-year-old eatery will shutter on October 30. Co-owners James Hondros and Amy McCray have said they may re-open in a new location down the road. Meanwhile, Eva will be replaced with Nepalese restaurant and bar Himalayan Sherpa House.

WALLINGFORD -- One of the fall's most anticipated openings is less than a month away from launching. Manolin, the 40-seat restaurant on Stone Way is in the home stretch of a build-out that began back in March. If the schedule keeps, the project from former Walrus and the Carpenter GM Joe Sundberg and partner Rachel Johnson (formerly of The Whale Wins) could open in a few weeks.

ANNOUNCEMENTS -- Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz is backing a  meal-planning start-up called gatheredtable. The online service, which is free for the first six months, uses an algorithm that creates customized menus based on the number of eaters and dietary preferences. The service provides weekly menus, grocery lists, and recipes.
