New Restaurant to Open in Seattle’s University District

50 North will be a U-District gathering place for Seattle students, professionals and families.

Late this fall, Melinda Sontgerath, owner of the historic Hardware Store Restaurant on Vashon Island, will bring a new ‘great good food’ concept to the mainland.

The new restaurant will be named 50 North, after the building and block it resides in, and will feature similar fare to the eclectic ‘Upscale American Food’ options found at The Hardware Store Restaurant. The menu celebrates simple, fresh and pure ingredients - both delicious and healthy.

Scheduled to open early December, 50 North is located at Northcut Landing on 25th Ave across from University Village and will accommodate 200 guests. 50 North diners will find ample free parking in the private two-level underground garage located just behind the restaurant.

In addition to the main dining room, which features two outdoor patios and semi-private spaces for group dining, there is a luxurious 3,200 square foot event space above the restaurant that will offer great food and drink from 50 North’s catering staff.

Sontgerath is partnering with Rob Andrews, who is an investor in the popular restaurants, Wild Ginger, El Gaucho, and the Waterfront. Both are excited to make the popular ‘great good food’ concept more accessible to off-islanders, many of who make the ferry voyage from Seattle to Vashon Island on a regular basis to eat at The Hardware Store.

When asked why she chose the University Village area for her new restaurant, Sontgerath replies: “The people - this area is a hub for so many Seattle students, professionals, and families. Whether they are joining us for a meal or just dropping by for take out, I think they will find this location to be convenient and comfortable - a U-District gathering place.”

50 North will be open everyday for breakfast, lunch, and dinner with a full bar and exciting wine selection. Information on specials, menus, and hours can be found at 50NorthRestaurant.com.
