Local restaurateurs James Weimann and Deming Maclise (Bastille, Poquitos, Rhein Haus, Macleod’s), in partnership with chef Jason Stoneburner (Stoneburner) break ground this month on their newest project, Seaplane Kitchen + Bar, located in Kenmore’s freshly imagined Town Square pavilion area. Scheduled to open in fall, Stoneburner plans to focus on locally sourced ingredients and naturally fermented pizza dough for a menu that includes stone-hearth pizzas; shareable roasted veggies; and large plates including fried chicken, entrée salads, and a stellar burger. The bar program headed by co-owner Erik Carlson features regional breweries on tap (with growlers available to go), and classic cocktails.
The 5,700-square-foot space will have floor-to-ceiling windows, a family-friendly dining area, and separate bar. An outdoor patio will add additional seating during warmer months, and an upper mezzanine will be available for private events for up to 50 guests.
“I look forward to sharing my approach toward food using quality ingredients with the Kenmore community and to meeting and getting to know the folks in the neighborhood,” said Stoneburner. “We hope to provide a chef-driven eating and gathering space that will become an exciting part of downtown Kenmore.”
