5 Corner Market opens Monday

There’s a new place to eat and drink in downtown Ballard. 5 Corner Market officially opens on Monday in a prominent spot.

5 Corner Market Restaurant and Bar is located in the former Lombardi’s location at the corner of 22nd Ave NW and NW Market Street. Hours are 11:30 a.m. to midnight on Monday through Wednesday, open until 2 a.m. on Thursday through Saturday. On Sunday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Chef Sam Crannell, formerly of Quinn’s and Oddfellows, is at the head of the kitchen in the new “gastropub,” which we’re told includes local, seasonal ingredients; full bar with hand-crafted cocktails. The menu will be half starters, half entrees, some cooked in the Wood Stone Josper Oven

I checked them out yesterday. Great beer list, though the prices on the Belgians are kind of horrifying. Steenbrugge tripel = win! $9 = fail.

Lovely cheese plate.

Too bad they are serving foie gras, which is produced by the mistreatment of geese, and so many other animal products. Looks totally unhealthy. I’ll miss the garlic smell on the corner.

Your twitter account is “healthnik”. I think I’ll let that stand on its own.

I’m no fan of foie gras, myself, but I managed to get through a pleasant hour there without anyone trying to force me to eat it. Which is more, I suppose, than the ducks can say.

Whoa a curve ball…. instead of just having people complain about cost, someone is complaining about animal products!!!

Mmm, animal products. Yummy. How can you live without butter and steak?

You seriously miss that horrible smell on the corner. I practically moved to a different part of the neighborhood because I hated walking past there every day.

When people say the main reason they eat animal products is because they are yummy… I know they haven’t thought the whole thing through.

I must say ah’ll be down to check the ol’ place out. You know, check and make sure it’s safe for vegetarians. Foie gras is vegetarian, right?

Yeah we have. I mostly eat vegetarian but every now and then I enjoy a good steak, roast chicken or even boudin noir. I avoid meat from the huge, disease ridden meat factories but am not willing to go the full vegetarian route (though I was for a few years). I’ve also done my share of hunting in the past so I have seen the nasty side of where meat comes from up close and know that the natural state for chicken isn’t a plastic wrapped styrofoam tray.

Some of us have thought it through and are still cool with it.

How can you say this “looks totally unhealthy?!?” Are you privy to Mr. Crannell’s preparation tactics or food sources? Unless you are, shame on you, Barb, for going to such lengths to demean a local business!

Wooo hoo, animal rights loons! How is life denied of pleasure?

Love me some foie gras! Burrrrp! Always great washed down with a Sauterne if your stomach can handle all the love put into making some wonderful foods like these.

That smell on the corner was the smell of cardboard with ketchup and garlic slathered on it and sold to people who wouldn’t know the difference.

There are some things you’re not supposed to ‘think through’, you’re supposed to simply enjoy. Food and sex are #1 and #2 on that list. Me thinks the food deniers also have sex issues.

I suggest folks go to youtube and search ‘anthony bourdain foie gras’ to learn more about the animal rights extremists fight against culture and pleasure.

a bad diet under the guise of some sort of weird idea of locovorism. like that somehow makes it better for you or the world or an animal. did you see the chef? the guy is fat. not to be trusted.

Unhealthy? French living in the Gascony region in southwest France, the heart of foie gras region, have far lower rates of cardiovascular disease than the entire US.

What the heck is a “rillet”? I’ll assume that you meant “rillettes”, but it’s possible that’s not what you meant at all.

Barb Levy is just another example of American puritanism run amok, ramming her neurotic, anti-pleasure views onto the rest of us. You don’t see meat eaters posting on this blog about vegetarian restaurants, criticizing their choices, claiming moral superiority?

Beth Levy is the ‘Jerry Falwell’ of food. Laugh at her puritanism, ignore her and go enjoy the pleasures of foie gras.

You know who else is mistreated? Meat eaters, by vegetarians.

The smell from the Ballard gym in back of there is far worse than what egresses from the kitchen. Also lulzy, the amount of people who come out of the gym and SMOKE in that corridor.

O wait, its because that’s a gym for cruising and not for exercising. It’s like the Golds Gym in the Castro, if you can dig it.

was in there yesterday just for a quick beer to check it out…

the smoke smell from that smoker was very strong in the restaurant. not sure the wood that was being used, but the smell was synthetic.

i hope that was a one time thing b/c it was pungent and very powerful

I went here for the soft opening weekend and butt-hurt vegetarians aside, the food was definitely as good as Quinn’s if not the same. Service was friendly. And the beer selection was awesome. $5 for a fantastic IPA and the trippel was awesome, but beware of the $9 price, although that’s not unreasonable.
