In March we discovered Lark chef Mitch Mayers was planning to open a new restaurant in the Kickin’ Boot spot in Old Ballard.
His approach will be high-quality, creative fine dining that’s “a bit more approachable,” Mayers explained. Like Oxtail nachos with soft-scrambled eggs, cotija cheese, and tomato ragu — or sweetbreads with a pork blood General Tso sauce and crispy fried rice, Eater explains. He’s also a big fan of rotisserie chicken with eight spits in the kitchen.
The restaurant, bar and patio is a big space, seating up to 120 people.
Sawyer’s projected open date is July 25th.
