B-TOWN BIZ: Donatelliâ€™s Market Opens; Progress On Red Fish Grill & More
Some updates on recent Burien business news:
We had a chance the other day â€“ Opening Day, as a matter of fact â€“ to visit new Burien neighbors Donatelliâ€™s Market.
The Donatelli family has created Burienâ€™s newest enterprise, where youâ€™ll find a wide variety of terrific fresh fruits, vegetables and other food items.
They are located on the west side of Ambaum Boulevard SW at SW 135th Street, in the building formerly occupied by Ike’s Burgers & Teriyaki.
B-Town Blog staffer Mark Neuman was on his way to another event with camera in hand. By chance timing, Mark became Donatelliâ€™s first customer ever, snaring two bananas plus two perfectly ripe avocados, leaving behind Donatelli Marketâ€™s â€œfirst dollar we ever earnedâ€ (see photo at right).
Theyâ€™re open seven days a week from 10:30am to 7pm. Open hours will lengthen as summer approaches.
And soon, Donatelliâ€™s will be offering catering … Italian style!
Donâ€™t forget to check out the north side of the nicely renovated building â€“ itâ€™s drive-through Espresso starting at 6:30am every morning.
Also, we’ve seen evidence of construction work on the Red Fish Grill, to be located where the former Keg Restaurant was at 180 SW 148th, across from the Transit Center in the Safeway mall:
