Named for a newly-exposed old brick wall in the Kolstrand building (4742 Ballard Ave), chef Ethan Stowell is opening “Staple & Fancy” in the refurbished building on Ballard Ave.
Stowell, who hit the Seattle restaurant scene a few years ago with Union, has opened several more restaurants around town including Tavolata, How to Cook a Wolf, and Anchovies & Olives.
According to our news partners, the Seattle Times, the new restaurant will have 35 seats in the dining room with eight more at the bar. You will either be able to order off the ala carte menu or order the chef’s mutli-course dinner. Stowell will be the head chef at Staple & Fancy and tells the Times, “We’re going to heavily encourage people to put themselves in my hands.”
