MANOLIN is brand-new in Wallingford/Fremont, down the street from The Whale Wins, and it looks great. Owner Rachel Johnson worked at the Whale, while other-owner Joe Sundberg comes from The Walrus and the Carpenter; Whale-and-Walrus owner Renee Erickson is having her company holiday party at Manolin, which is maybe the world’s best endorsement. See the opening menu at right. MORE > > >

LARK reopens tonight at 952 E. Seneca St., behind the Garage, just a few blocks from its original location. The new Lark joins Trove in the nascent multipartite-restaurant trend: It’s also got an oyster-and-other-raw-fish-and-aperitif-and-amaro bar called Bitter/Raw, with sandwiches-and-pie place Slab Sandwich + Pie coming soon, all from John Sundstrom. Much excitement surrounding this one… MORE > > >  and EVEN MORE > > >

CANTINA LEÑA is a downtown order-at-the-counter Mexican spot, with slushy-machine margaritas, tortillas made with masa ground on-site, and a 10-foot-long raised fire pit (for cooking, not for sitting around). In fact, it’s an all wood-fired kitchen, “no gas burners or electric ovens here.” Tom Douglas made it (of course). MORE > > >

HIMALAYAN SHERPA HOUSE is open in the former Eva space in Green Lake/Tangletown, serving Nepalese, Indian, and Tibetan food made by Mt.-Everest-climbing chef Jangbu Sherpa. MORE > > >

KATSU BURGER — which reopened in Georgetown at the end of September, to fans’ huge relief — now has a second location in Bellevue, bringing the gigantic Mt. Fuji burger closer to Eastside mouths. MORE > > >
