The Walrus and the Carpenter, named after this poem, is scheduled to open this July in the newly renovated Kolstrand Building (4743 Ballard Ave NW), developer Chad Dale tells us. According to the website, “The Walrus and the Carpenter blends the elegance of France with the casual comfort of a local fishing pub.” The new restaurant will be open at 4 p.m. daily and serve oysters, locally harvested clams and mussels, house-smoked fish, frites, seasonal soups, salads, fresh local organic vegetables, cured meats, cheese and grilled sausages. They will also serve Sunday brunch from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. An outdoor eating space is also planned.
