Once the sun comes out, the owner of Savour (2242 NW Market St) wants to add outside seating. “The outdoor café is a chance to expand our seating area, at least during the warm weather months, without taking more retail space in the store,” owner Holly McLean tells us. “Also, we’re excited to have customers enjoy items from our menu with a glass of wine or beer in the sunshine, as we know how Seattleites worship the sun!”
The 16 to 20 seats in the outdoor café will be the entire length of the storefront. “I want the outdoor space to have a European feel and will achieve that with beautiful flower planters and wrought iron railings and furniture,” McLean says. The culinary leader at Savour is putting together a small plate menu to pair with wines and beers, “and designed specifically to enhance our outdoor dining experience.” McLean is currently working to add the outdoor addition to the Savour liquor license by the time the café opens in May.
