New Year, New Celebrations!
As the new year kicks off, we want to take a moment to touch base with our beloved friends, guests, and family to thank you for your unbelievable support. Our 5th anniversary celebration is January 31st, and we’re celebrating with a giant dinner party! We are fully booked for reservations, however we’ll have limited space for some walk-in friends. We can't imagine experiencing the last several incredible years without your encouragement and love. From long, delicious brunches to all those evenings laughing + imbibing at the bar, meeting your beautiful children, partners, and adored 4-legged family members: it’s been an honor and joy to be a part of your lives and we look forward to the next five years.
In Other Exciting News…
2018 marked the promotion of Angela Ortez-Davis as our new Executive Chef! The transition marks a milestone for the restaurant with two women at the helm.
Ortez-Davis joined Brimmer & Heeltap in the spring of 2017 to lead the restaurant’s popular brunch menu. She is a second-generation chef, growing up with a chef and cookbook author mother and restaurant-owning father. Her vision for the menu is to showcase local proteins and produce with a nostalgic and comforting flair.
“Food is like a puzzle,” says Ortez-Davis. “It’s about simple elegance, sustainability, beauty and respect. Basically, it’s all about balance.”
Prior to joining the Brimmer & Heeltap team, Ortez-Davis worked at Circadia and Mamnoon. She graduated from Seattle University in 2008 and Seattle Culinary Academy in 2016.
Popping In For
Now that we’re all diving feet-first into the new year, let’s talk about some of the upcoming events that we’re creating to add a little extra fun to your month. Every single month we are having an incredible cheese & wine pop-up with Alison Leber, along with a rotating bar pop-up. We’re setting up in our beautiful studio space, just through the garden from the penny room, and you’ll feel like you’ve suddenly escaped the city!
Monthly Cheese & Wine
Our cheese & wine events will take place on the last Sunday of each month, (unless otherwise noted), and you’ll get to experience the brilliance of local legend Alison, who owned Brie & Bordeaux, and ran the education program for Sugar Mountain (aka Beecher's). In addition, you’ll make friends with an exclusive, curated selection of wines, available for you to taste and purchase at regular retail pricing. Mark your calendars so you don’t miss these future cheese & wine shop soirées in our garden studio:
Our first bar pop-up of the year is happening during the month of love, so on February 21st we’re starting this series out with a BANG! Grab your favorite wing-person, plus few extra single friends, and join us for Stupid Cupid: Singles Unite!
This sensational event kicks off with a delicious lineup of cocktails & snacks for you to enjoy, along with personal energy readings courtesy of Vibe Elevated, a professional photographer to snap the perfect profile pic for you, a talented local writer to help you compose the ideal online dating profile, plus we're going to be celebrating the launch of a new dating app called Wowzer, specifically designed for those of us who love animals.
You don't want to miss this fun event, but we completely understand why you might want to bring your best pal for support, so please bring along your favorite wing-person and get ready for a fun party just for you! We welcome singles and wing-people of every orientation — this is an inclusive event that celebrates and supports all.
