A New Alberta Pizza Spot Opens Today With Elk Sausage Pizzas
A new pizzeria from the folks behind Produce Row opens for delivery today. Pacific Crust Pizza Company is going for a Pacific Northwestern woodsman schtick, topping pies with boar bacon and elk sausage. However, the menu does have some basic pizzas too, from the standard pepperoni to a Hawaiian pizza made with Tails & Trotters ham. The shop will open in the former Station Pizza Pub location at 2703 NE Alberta Street, but don’t plan on popping by; the shop is sticking to delivery for now. The pizzeria shows up on Grubhub or the restaurant’s website October 15 at 4 p.m. [WWeek]
Cheerful Seafood Spot Jacqueline Closes for the Winter
The SE Clinton seafood spot known for Pacific Northwestern oysters, creative seafood dishes, and its portrait of Bill Murray as Steve Zissou announced on Instagram that it will close for the winter season. “Truth be told, it is just too damn hard to have a little seafood restaurant during these trying times,” the social media post reads. “We cannot wait to invite you back into our restaurant to celebrate all the best things in life, but it doesn’t feel like the right time to keep our dining room open.” Jacqueline had been serving $1 happy hour oysters outside the restaurant, but with the cold making it more difficult to seat customers outside, it made more sense to simply close temporarily. The restaurant intends to reopen in the spring. [EaterWire]
