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.
