The first few tenants making plans for the Chophouse Row project on Capitol Hill are familiar names in the world of good food.

Ericka Burke of Volunteer Park Cafe announced that she’ll open two anchor businesses in the high-ceilinged old garage that used to house the Chophouse Rehearsal Studios. The Chop Shop Cafe & Bar will offer breakfast, lunch, dinner and a full bar (with breakfast “based loosely on European-style morning buffets,”) while Chop Shop Juice & Provisions will have fresh juices & grab-and-go food.

Kurt Timmermeister, who was known for his Capitol Hill restaurant Cafe Septieme before farming and cheese making on Vashon Island, is returning to the hill with a small spot at Chophouse. He told Seattle Met that the micro-shop “will bring my farm to the city” and might include items like ice cream made with milk from his cows and flavored with Vashon berries or herbs.

The mixed-use project is scheduled to open in the fall. It’s another redevelopment by Dunn+Hobbes, who brought us instant hot spot Melrose Market (Sitka & Spruce, Rainshadow Meats, The Calf & Kid, etc. etc.), the Piston & Ring building (La Spiga & Plum Bistro) and other notable dining spots in the same neighborhood.
