“7 Beef,” named for the 7-course Vietnamese dinner, will join the other restaurants owned by the siblings — the newly expanded Monsoon, Monsoon East, and Ba Bar. The 90-seat restaurant will be in a 4,000-square-foot space (equipped with a 48-inch wood-fired grill), featuring both classic steaks and French-inspired sides, “some with subtle Vietnamese twists,” plus their take on the 7 courses of beef.
The restaurant will have its own butchery room, and plans are to use only grass-fed beef, breaking down whole cows from local suppliers.
It all sounds very nouveau Seattle, as Eater noted, down to the plans for electric car charging stations. Those with only a slightly longer Seattle memory will applaud to hear that Scott Emerick is returning to the Northwest as 7 Beef’s opening chef. The Le Pichet alum made a lasting impact at the short-lived Crémant bistro in Madrona, wowing diners with luxurious charcuterie and elegant onion soup and other spot-on French classics. A friend of Eric Banh’s, he’s apparently been cooking more recently at Restaurant Nora in Washington D.C., the country’s first certified organic restaurant.
The restaurant will be at 1305 E. Jefferson St.
