SEATTLE— After months of anticipation, Trove, the new Capitol Hill project from chefs Rachel Yang and Seif Chirchi (Joule, Revel), opens this Sunday. The 4,000-square-foot space includes a bar, noodle counter, Korean barbecue, and parfait window. Eater has photos of the knock-out space. Also new this week: Quality Athletics, a quirky sports bar in Pioneer Square. See inside the bright new space from chef/restaurateur Josh Henderson (Westward, Skillet founder). [-ESEA-]
VANCOUVER— Here now, a double whammy of photo interludes from Rain City. First, enjoy photos from the 20th anniversary of the annual Feast of Fields, a celebration of BC's bounty. (When Farm Folk and City Folk, get together, the results can be delicious.) Next up, another day, another Vancouver brewery is set to open, as the Steel Toad Brewpub and Dining Room will soon open on 2nd Avenue and Quebec Street. Eater Vancouver takes a sneak peek inside before it opens. [EVAN]
SEATTLE— Fran's Chocolates is moving into the sprawling former Rainier Brewery space in Georgetown, drawing unavoidable comparisons to Willy Wonka. The huge, fully-restored factory also includes a retail space and drinking chocolate bar. [-ESEA-]
VANCOUVER— Oh so much change right now in the world of Vancouver restaurants: the new chef is named at Bambudda and it's none other than ex-Top Chef contestant (and now ex-Parker chef) Curtis Luk. Over in the West End, chef Henry Besser Rosenberg is leaving Buckstop to be replaced by Casmir Macdonald. [EVAN]
