Park Lane closing to cars this summer- May 26th thru Sept 22nd on SUNDAYS Park Lane will be closing to vehicles so that downtown will be walkable from Lake Street through to Kirkland Urban. More sidewalk spaces for the business and al-fresco dining. If this is successful they may do it all weekend next summer.woot!
COMO is opening at Carillon Point this June. Slightly mysterious so far, but it sounds like they are a sister restaurant of Cantinetta in Bellevue (yum) and focusing on cuisine from the Lombardia area of Italy that is surrounding Lake Como. Which I haven't been to yet, but George Clooney hangs out there so it must be awesome.
Kirkland Weds Market opens 6/5. Mark your calendar. You know what to do.
Smoke & Shine Opens in Totem Lake--- Amazing brisket. Super loud. Post coming soon but I'm heading back to the sunshine now.
