Ethan Stowell has finally gone public with his plans to close Union — his first restaurant, downtown at First and Union, and expects to open Staple & Fancy Mercantile in the newly refurbished Kolstrand Building in Ballard in July. He’ll be the chef in charge at the new place, which he’ll run with his wife Angela, and share an adjoining space in the rehabbed building with Boat Street Cafe’s Renee Erickson. Erickson’s new oyster bar, The Walrus and the Carpenter, adjoins the Stowells’ 40-seat restaurant. I’ll give you more on the story, soon, so stay tuned.
