It’s Friday, which means it’s time for the weekly EaterWire round up of all those news items we didn’t quite cover. This week was all about Italian food and sandwiches, but a few stories did fall through the cracks:

SEAFOOD BRUNCH Dóttir, the restaurant within Northeast MLK’s new hotel Kex, started serving breakfast to the public today. The menu involves smorrebrod with ham and egg, granola with yogurt-esque skyr, and trout salad with seeded bread, plus cocktails like mimosas and a miso-infused bloody mary with a choice of vodka or aquavit. The restaurant has been offering a breakfast buffet for hotel guests, but this a la carte menu is new to the restaurant. [EaterWire]

BRASS BREAK-IN — Several businesses around MLK and Williams have been experiencing break-ins and burglaries, and it looks like another restaurant has hit that list of targeted shops. On Friday night, someone broke into North Vancouver sandwich shop Brass Tacks, according to owner Amanda Taylor. Taylor says the thief took money from the register as well as two egg pans and all of the restaurant’s White Claw and potato salad. [EaterWire]

ANOTHER ROUND — Eric and Karen Bowler, co-owners of Portland bars and restaurants like Fortune and Revelry, have joined the partnership team at Century, the hip sports bar on Sandy. Century is currently operated by Lightning Bar Collective, which owns bars like the Bye and Bye and the Sweet Hereafter. [EaterWire]
