New Ballard Restaurant Shingletown harkens back to Old Ballard

A new Ballard restaurant opens this week calling itself “Shingletown.” The roots of Old Ballard are said to be used as inspiration. 

The owners of the Ballard Loft bring the area Shingletown Northwest Pub & Eatery, giving their local loyals a taste of something new (and old).

The new restaurant (2016 NW Market Street) has taken over where Anchors Down and Po Dog used to be, and is not short on room. The construction features both vintage and contemporary aspects that evoke a Shingletown design of the early 1900s.

“We have authentic cedar shingles and antique saws incorporated in the décor, while the food, wine, beer, and cocktails will showcase the best of what the Pacific Northwest has to offer,” says Ballard Loft of their sister restaurant.

The plan is for Shingletown to open its doors to the public either Saturday or Sunday, with a soft opening for family and friends tomorrow night.

Shingletown boasts a fierce Northwest menu including featured deviled eggs, a small-plate seafood selection, the savory Oyster Po Boy and hot seasonal fruit cobblers, meanwhile serving up just a touch of neighborhood history.
