Is former NBA star opening restaurant on Lower Queen Anne?

Posted on September 21st, 2010 by Editor


We just came across an interesting liquor license application with a famous name on it.  This application reveals who may be opening a new restaurant in the old Ascada Bistro space on Lower Queen Anne. 

Right now, there’s white paper covering the windows at 621 1/2 Queen Anne Avenue (across from the MarQueen Hotel) with the words “Watch 4 Us.”  The applicants listed on the liquor paperwork are former Seattle Supersonic Shawn Kemp and his wife Marvena.  They apparently plan to turn this space into a restaurant and lounge.  Right now, the business is simply listed as “MTK Ventures.”  We’ll keep you posted as we learn more.

    Any word on what might be going in on Roy (behind Toulouse Petit next to the barbershop)?

    Also, looks like a beer/wine place is going into the old jewelers space next to The Signatuee. Or maybe it’s a liquor store hoping that the initiatives will pass…
