The wait for the Red Mill Totem House in Ballard is almost over.
Owner John Shepherd tells us they will officially open next Tuesday, October 11th. While the exterior of the Red Mill Totem House has been in the news, here is your first look at the inside. The interior has been completely redone, with the ceiling beams exposed and re-stained.
There is also a photo of the original Totem House before it was completed and you’ll see some of the original pieces on display inside the restaurant.
The new Red Mill Totem House has several tables inside and picnic tables outside. Next spring, Shepherd says they’ll add additional outdoor seating. Along with the expected burgers, the menu also includes fish and chips and clam chowder – a tribute to the history of the building.
The Red Mill Totem House (3058 NW 54th St) will be open Tuesday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday noon to 8 p.m. As with their other restaurants in Interbay and Phinney Ridge, the Ballard spot will only accept cash and checks.
