A previous equipment shop on Jensen Marina in Portage Bay is now a bakery serving up hazelnut butter toast and bratwurst sandwiches — blessed by its have patron saint and a stained glass window to match. Saint Bread softly opened very last week at 1421 NE Boat Road, as documented by Seattle PI and Seattle Fulfilled.
The project is from the heavy-hitting baking staff of Yasuaki Saito, Michael Sanders, and Randi Rachlow, a trio of close friends who experienced labored alongside one another at London Airplane. “We are excited to get back again alongside one another and provide our neighborhood. We’re not a great deal into competitors and we’re just hoping to do our greatest and make points we feel are mouth watering,” Saito tells Eater via electronic mail.
The final result is a menu that spans French, Japanese, American, and Scandinavian traditions, as the staff drew inspiration from their heritages and experiences. Pastries contain cardamom knots, chocolate croissants, and melonpan (that Japanese sweet bun is also the delivery auto for a steamed egg and cheese sandwich). Consider toasts on freshly baked bread, with toppings from ricotta to avocado to smoked trout. The kitchen area gives dishes like an okonomiyaki tortilla, alongside with get-and-go things from salads to grain bowls to sandwiches.
On the beverage side, obtain Very pleased Mary Espresso and Rishi Tea along with community beers like Holy Mountain & Fortunate Envelope and non-alcoholic beverages from Lemoncocco to Dr Pepper. The strategy is to ultimately include wine and cocktails.
Look at out the existing food stuff menu underneath:
Saint Bread tapped Melissa Glenn and Jim Graham at GBA to style the space, together with the site’s master prepare architects Weber Thompson. “We ended up all committed to keeping the equipment shop’s character and incorporating to the heritage of craft on the Jensen Marina,” states Saito.
The bones of the primary composition continue being, from the exterior siding to the rafters and beams and the principal entry’s sliding barn doorways. That “Saint Bread” stained glass window is a collaboration among Manufacturing unit North & Studio Superconductor.
“Jonny Ashcroft of Superconductor, who digitally painted our Saint Bread icon, questioned his uncle Rick Ashcroft, a stained glass artist, to enable us produce the window. It is attractive and when the early morning sunshine shines as a result of it, the bakery is crammed with colored mild,” Saito suggests.
Saint Bread’s present-day operating hrs are 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesdays as a result of Fridays. Finally, the program is to open up up further days and hrs once the Saint Bread staff is in the swing of issues. “We are hunting ahead to summer months on the drinking water,” states Saito, noting that the group is finishing function on a 2nd patio to health supplement a covered and heated deck. Just as the bakery incorporated the structure’s current characteristics, that new patio will be shaded with sails from the first boathouse.
