Today, Tom Douglas is kicking off his takeout-only restaurant in Ballard.
Located in his Ballard warehouse kitchen and Rub with Love headquarters (5118 14th Ave NW), Serious TakeOut is offering no-contact drive-in, walk-up, or delivery food and drinks from noon to 8pm everyday.
The menu mostly features pizzas and baked sandwiches, with to-go beer, wine, and cocktail kits.
The Serious pizza list includes pies such as the mozzarella di bufala with tomato sauce and fresh basil, a sweet fennel sausage with roasted peppers and provolone, and one topped with roasted seasonal mushrooms, crimini, and truffle cheese.
The oven-baked sandwiches are served on toasted baguettes with fillings that include a choice of fennel roasted pork, pickled vegetables, and parmesan fonduta; or wood grilled eggplant, pickled green tomatoes and peppers with parmesan fonduta.
If you’re craving a dessert, they have a sour cherry pie, or their Dahlia Bakery chocolate chunk cookie basket.
Their cocktails kits are robust, including the Carlile Boulevardier kit ($150 and makes 33 cocktails) including Redemption Rye, Averna Amaro, Campari, and orange for twisting. They also have a Lola Greek Martini kit ($65 and makes 16 cocktails) with your choice of Titos Vodka or Lewis and Clark Gin, Dry Vermouth, and feta-stuffed olives.
Tom Douglas plans to donate $1 of each order to Food Lifeline.
