It’s not very often a restaurant concept created in Canada expands beyond it’s homeland. Boston Pizza, The Keg and Tim Hortons are among the few Canadian chains to do it. On a smaller scale, Vancouver’s Japadog tried to do it in New York city but unfortunately closed after two years in business. Now, Vancouver’s Meat and Bread is reportedly taking Highway 99 south to open a location in the recently rezoned, industrial area of Capitol Hill in Seattle, Washington.
Meat and Bread is planning open in the rebuilt Central Agency Building, which is rumored to have held secret files of the FBI, along with several Seattle restaurants including Lark, Bitter/Raw and Slab Sandwich + Pie. This section of Capitol Hill has mostly warehouses but there’s a new initiative to bring in bars and restaurants. Once word gets out about Meat & Bread’s famous Porchetta Salsa Verde sandwich, that area will definitely see an increase of visitors and Seattle will be saying “Salumi who?” Meat & Bread along with the other restaurants at the Central Agency Building are expected to open later this year.
