A new restaurant is preparing to open in the former Ototo Sushi digs at the corner of Boston and Queen Anne Ave. Called “Grub,” it’s the product of Queen Anne resident Sharon Fillingim, who’s best known for opening Le Rêve Bakery in the neighborhood.
We stopped by the space this morning, and Fillingim told us Grub will be a family-friendly “breakfast, lunch and dinner house” in an American fusion style — with hints of Asian, Spanish and French influence. She said the restaurant will feature local, sustainable ingredients at an affordable price. This will be her sixth venture, and she hopes it’s her last — “in a good way,” she laughs.
Inside, workers are putting the last touches on tables and decor.
A bar lines one wall, and Fillingim is already working on wine selections. She says they’re planning to open in the middle of August. “I’m a stickler for perfection, and I’m not opening my doors until we’re ready,” she said. “I don’t want to disappoint.”
